    I'm finally looking to upgrade my Suspension on the 07 Tacoma. I have a few options @ the moment and leaning towards 2 options.

    1. All Pro - Evan Walker 2.0 Full Coilovers w/All Pro UCA 1'

    or

    2. SAW 2.0 Full Coilovers

    What do these retail for?

    I'm interested in them and any advice or insight will be great! Thanks in advance

    wat?
    i'm running option #1 w/ the AP 3" leaf packs and WE 2.0 rears as well. The CO's are great, but if u crank them to get the full 3" of lift, they ride rough

    Sweet, I was looking into that with the ALLPRO 1' UCA. I think this set up will run great. Thinking i'm only going to go 2.5 and fix the Taco Driver Side Lean....:D

    well do like the instructions on the site say, then remove .5" of shown thread from each side. should take u down to 2.5" of lift AND have the lean fixed

    instructions say for 3" of lift and level, have 3.2" of thread out the top of the passenger side and 3.7" on the drivers

    ^ Hay Yosh/or anyone

    What do you think of the Evan Walkers? I heard good things about them and started to learn towards it a lot.

    How do the Evan Walkers compare to Icons, Fox, SAW, etc? Anyone?

    How about the All Pro UCA 1 inch compared to the Total Chaos?

    well honestly, i would go w/ the 2.0 SAWs and the light racing UCAs. unless your getting crazy in the dezert, i personally think that is all you need.

    why do you want uniball UCAs? do you really need them?

    concerning walker evans, havent really heard that much about them. from the day i started getting into tacomas some 9 years ago, i have constantly been hearing about how good SAWs are....so i know thats not really a technical answer, but thats all i got!

    FYI: there was a guy on ttora i believe that was getting rid of some 2.5 SAWs w/ 45k on them for i believe $500. he's from arizona, but will be in california this weekend, might be worth a search.

    edit: heres the link to the guy...i was trying to pick them up but dont have the money right now

    Thanks Yosh....

    I want the UCA to make sure I can get an alignment and have the front end right! I'm lifting it 2.25 in the front with the coilovers....

    I think the SAW are the way to go and thanks for the advice!

    well, if your just doing it for alignment to do it right, just get the LR arms for $450. they come with OEM style ball joint so no worries of noise like the uniball TCs, camburgs, and allpros.

    just because one may want the billet icon UCAs for $1200, doesnt mean the $450 ones wont do the same in your specific application. again, just my opinion.
