    Hi Eric,
    Here's another one of those "does it work" questions.

    Here's my set up:
    Icon stage 6 shocks w/ resi (model # 57805CP, 14.22" collapsed x 24.35” extended) which is standard length and at stock shock mount
    Deaver U402
    U-bolt flip kit
    Timbren bump stops.

    Saw several comments on the shackle flip threat mentioned that at 24” extended shock (max drop) might be too short for the shackle flip kit. Didn’t see anyone with my current set up and wanted to double check with you that this indeed is too short for the kit. I’m looking to increase ride height 1/2 to 1” on the back and get some more drop. The topper/bed slide/armor/roof rack have weighted down the taco. 90% on pavement, some dirt roads on the weekends. Let me know what you think.
    Than you for your time.

    The perfect solution for you is my Hammer hangers. You might get .25" lift from HH, otherwise get lift another way, extra leaf or a zero rate leaf/1" block. Your Icons are limiting droop with HH by a few inches.

    Was looking at those right after I posted but wasn’t sure either. Will PM you in a couple of days when I’m ready to pull the trigger. Thank you so much.

    Hey Henry the HH work great and still provide a lot of flex. I have mine paired with 12in kings though. Definitely a must for any tacoma in my opinion.

    Yeah. I didn’t know as much back when I got these icons. Can’t see myself getting new shocks anytime soon. Can’t do shackle flip, but those HH look really nice.

    Oooh, ooooh, me too!! I’m beefing up the rear and need your help. I cant decide on HH or the shackle flip. I do not plan on “overlanding”, strictly a moderate trail rig to have some fun driving in.
    Here’s the breakdown:
    stock leafs w/ icon AAL and icon 2.0 resi’s. In the future I do plan on going with your shock relocation and 12” kangs. I’m looking at buying some Dakars(el095r) here soon to help support my Bruteforcefab HC rear. What are your thoughts on me using these icons and Dakars? Which setup should I go, HH or SF?

    I'd go HH. With stock springs, the Hammer hangers rode better than the shackle flip for me.

    Ok. Now, I’m in the process of upgrading my leafs to the Dakars, do you still recommend HH’s?

    Is there a way to setup this shackle kit for an additional 1" on the drivers side to make up for the taco lean?

    Nope, but you can handle it by having the driver front coil spring help the issue. Either crank the driver coilover or shim the driver coil spring.
    Then for rear, put a 6" long 3/8" leaf under the driver's side pack

    I've had the Archive shackle flip w/ 4" shackles for more than a year now on stock springs and have been happy with ride but needed to upgrade the rear to keep up with my front set up. Decided to go with the full Archive set up and Finally got the Archive SUA and Shock relocation with Fox 14" shocks installed and the Shackle flip w/ 4.75 shackles. Haven't had a chance to hit any dirt yet but stoked with the street ride so far. Thanks for all your help Eric @ARCHIVE and for answering all my questions. Your product is top notch man!

    Don't mind the white splatter on the under carriage, it's from a paint can some douche left on a dirt road near my house.

    Thank you Jose! The truck and install looks really clean. The shackle angle looks very good and is a confirmation of the info in post #1282 about the new longer springs:

    For readers, this is the U644/645 (light duty) which are a good fit for the Access Cabs

    Yooooooooo looks really really good!!!!

    Can’t wait to see some flex pics!

    Just to clarify, it seems the SUA Is most ideal for bump travel and higher speed wheeling, right? Not necessarily better for slower speed crawling type wheeling?

    Right, SUA isn't better than SOA for crawling, but it still flexes well

    Heres some flex...theres still a bit more drop left on driver side and room for more tuck on passengers side.
