Question 3" Tuff Country Kit not working in Jamaica.. PLEASE HELP

Hi all!! this is my first post..

I have a 2005 4X4 Tacoma and installed a tuff country 3" lift kit with 285/60 R18 NITTO tires about 3 years ago. The truck ran fine in Los Angeles but ever since I brought it to Montego Bay, Jamaica it rides TERRIBLE.. The ride is way too tight for our roads and I feel every little pot hole and bumb. Since the truck as been in Jamaica I have had constant trouble with my front end and in fact am in the process replacing both rack ends again for the second time in two years. I am looking to repace my current setup for a GOOD suspension that will last and give me a smooth ride on bad roads. I obviously do not need the most expensive or HARD CORE suspension because I do not do any extreme off-raoding. Just need somthing that will be suitable for driving on pot hole infested roades everyday!!



Can anybody help?????

Ome

I checked them out but it seems like not many people know about this product... where did you purchase yours from?

Any thoughts on camburg?

I drive a full OME set up except rear springs. It's great....If you are driving lots of washboards and pot holes- The lower pressure and additional oil will help keep the shocks cooler and more responsive.

I bought mine thru WheelersOffroad.com- They have the springs (at least 885s, maybe 886s for you) and the shocks you need.
