    Haha, no worries. ;) should update your "vehicle" to list OR also, so questions won't pop up in the future if happens again. Just says TRD DCLB, doesn't state pro/OR/sport.

    Hey! We can definitely do the same kit with black coils if you’re interested. We actually just shipped a set to a customer in California.

    Price is the same as well! Let me know if you’re interested. Thanks!

    Interested in that GTS lift. Do the rear spacer blocks also act as a 3* shim ?

    I don't believe so. The tapered blocks are only there to add height to the rear of the vehicle.

    Good scoop delete, TRD shift knob, stickers...
    Hearing a lot of love for Dobison suspension over with the 4Runner guys. Glad this review is here, I'm still researching a couple of options for my Sport. Thanks for your reviews and great pics!

    They are tapered, so you do not need the shim. The blocks adjust the drive angle.

    I installed a Dobinson lift last week. I went with the 2” springs up front and opted for the HS 3leaf AAL in the rear for a 1.5” rear lift. So far I am really liking it. Def. a firmer more controlled ride over the OR suspension. Pic is a bit off looks higher in the front but it’s actually about 1/2 higher in rear. 607BB37B-57BD-43C0-8B6A-72691FC97B1C.jpg

    No shims in the rear. I took the OL leaf out to keep it at 1.5 in the rear. I don’t haul that much so should be fine. No vibes so far but haven’t driven that much. Nice and smooth so far up to 55 mph. Haven’t gotten out on the main roads yet. Had it aligned yesterday and all is green however I feel like the alighnment guy didn’t really know what to set it at as he went with factory specs and it’s now 2” over that. I will probably take it somewhere else but that means a 2.5 hr drive for me. When all said and done I like the lift and look but almost wished I would have gone with the medium load for a 2.5 inch up front. All good though.

    My truck rides smooth, with no vibrations. For the price and improved ride, it’s a great deal.
    I did the medium load springs and got 2.75”-front, 2”-rear. Still have .5-.75” of rake. Tapered blocks in rear. Here’s some pics.

    Hey guys, how are you liking the Dobinson's set up? I've read a few posts and reviews on the other Toyota forums and this thread. Only third gen tacomas I see are running Dobinsons. I have a second gen

    Curious if these are close in ride quality to the Eibach kit. At $700 this seems like a good buy for guys that stay on pavement most of the time.
