I have recently acquired a Super Clean 1999 X cab 4X4 SR5 5 speed 3.4 V-6 Tacoma and need some tips on the equipment to upgrade the suspension for towing a 5~5500 lb enclosed 16' Trailer.
I have already fitted it with a better than class 4 (after mods.) receiver and 7 pin wiring connector and of course, a good brake controller..
I was planning on upgrading to 4600HD Bilstein's F&R due to excellent previous experience with their products.
I do not need or want any lift, however as I have already experienced, the stock springs are a joke in poor taste!
I have viewed AirLift air bag assists but have reservations due to previous experience with a in - transit line failure before. Not much fun loaded in the mountains coming down & have a line blow! (I'm still farting seat foam from that one!)
SO.... Specifically I need recommendations for rear aal's and if needed, front springs, along with slip on towing mirrors to complete the package.
I would like if possible to keep a non punishing ride when empty because I'll only be towing about 15~20% of the time.
I've viewed a lot of info on the later models, but not much for the Gen 1's.
I am a ignorant "Noob" & apologize for the annoyance this might cause some members but, I am not much on a computer & sincerely desire to Do It Right & thank you all for any constructive comments you might bestow upon me.
Link's, etc. would be most appreciated!
I know my desired info is here Somewhere... I just have not found it in the last couple of weeks lurking & searching.
This having been said, Let the flogging begin!
