I'm proud to finally be able to join your community, as I have just purchased a 1999 3rz Tacoma.
I bought it off a guy who had already done several mods, the ones I'm addressing in this thread are:
2.5 inch Sway Away Racerunner Coilovers, probably a 650lb spring
Procomp? Rear shocks
BF Goodrich Mud Terrain 32x12.5
My previous vehicle was a 1989 Toyota Corolla, and I had drove it as a vehicle headed to the junkyard, offroading the crap out of it, doing ghetto suspension spacer lifts, coil spring swaps from other cars, etc.
I just took my new Tacoma offroad in the desert where I live over some woops, etc. and have completely broken my back due to the waaay to stiff suspension.
I bought this truck with intentions of using it as a daily driver, with light desert offroading on the weekends/build a Prerunner truck.
Searches through the internet, and this forum tell me that the Sway aways are a great upgrade, but my experiences tell me otherwise.
Is this how truck suspension is supposed to be? My Corolla was twice as soft, and could take bumps, but the blown shocks made it a bouncy ride, though not nearly as stiff and miserable as my new truck.
Should I put in softer springs? Can I revalve the suspension? I understand SCORE/Baja 1000 Prerunners are built with stiff rear ends, and soft front ends. How would I mimic this behavior on a budget?
I intend on taking the 32's off and putting on smaller tires, as I don't need giant power stealers.
