    Is this kit available with the 314 coils? I’d like to get 2.5” in front and 2” in rear.

    I currently have 2” front and 1” rear, E rated (10ply) tires. Sport suspension with spacer and blocks. I’m looking for a softer ride and a little more lift.
    Ps. I like the red/black color combination, I have a black truck with a few red accents.

    Nope, angles on the CVs are fine. I had the diff drop on my 2017, and ended up removing it after a couple months. Below 2.5" lift, they seem useless.

    Yes, we can swap in any coil you prefer. Let me know if you have any questions!

    @Mack7n Is there any drone with new muffler? I am looking at that same muffler and want to hear my exhaust but not have too much drone. I feel like I am driving a prius.

    Talked to Eric today and got my kit ordered! 314 coils in front for 2.5” lift. Same price as light load kit. Can’t wait to get the suspension installed next week!
    @eevaldes is great to work with. Took my order over the phone and emailed my invoice right away.

    Name the angle and height, and I'll grab one for ya. Trucks fairly clean at the moment, so it'd be a good time to grab a photo. :D She's getting buffed (ended up getting some major scratches in drivers side bumper to bumper other day while off roading) and then a ceramic coating, so this weekend she'll be extra pretty.

    Just a clean side shot or two with no angle would be great!

    Your post was linked in another thread, interested in your feed back since it appears it's been about 4 or so months since you've had them on your truck. Any changes? Positive? Negative? Things you wish were different? Things you'd do differently?

    Hey, sorry for the late response. As far as changes, none that I have noticed at all. It seems the coils settled a little, but almost negligible by measuring. Ride is still great, with 0 complaints. I've been towing a Kawasaki Teryx on a 6x12 Trailer about 122 miles 1 way to ghr atv Park (total of roughly 2k lbs) and truck sits perfectly level when towing, and handles great.

    Exhaust, nothing changed there, need to swap out my Chrome TRD tip or paint it, as it's getting pretty grungy, and the only thing I've noticed different with the exhaust is when towing (didn't really tow before) and yes, on the highway when towing, it drones pretty bad (almost no drone at all when not towing) but once in back roads, drone goes away until climbing over larger hills.

    The tires, now that it's warm out, I've been getting 23-24mpg on average with the 10plys. Kind of wish I had gotten the 4/6 ply, as they have slightly less tread, and I get an extremely minor rub at 45 degree left turns when backing up and hitting a bump. Going to heat gun the inner fender again just a touch to fix that this weekend.

    Outside of those, still extremely happy with Tires, suspension and Exhaust. Comments all the time on the exhaust, even from other Tacoma drivers with exhausts on them, suspension works amazing on our old logging roads ripping away at 55mph, and handles great when towing at least 2k lbs, haven't towed heavier yet.

    Hit me up if anything more specific for questions, sorry for the shortness, loading up atv to head north to ride. :D

    $500+ more expensive since 8 months ago? (unless I'm misreading his setup)?
