    Regardless of fitment, a coil intended for a full size truck is going to ride like a 2x4 in your compact 99.

    Valid statement is valid. Unless you add a big ass winch bumper don't do it.

    Bad idea. That v8 alone probably weighs more than the entire front half of your taco. Its going to rattle you teeth out. Not to mention, your likely going to have to cut and weld shit to make them fit. The link that isu2014 posted is for putting 1st gen tundra coils on a tacoma, not 2nd gen tundras.

    I have 1st gen Tundra coils on my 4runner. They ride well and are paired with Tundra 5100's. I haven't heard anything about the 07-11 Tundra coils being used, but I would assume they wouldn't work or be very stiff due to the weight of the 5.7.
