    3 Inch Procomp suspesnsion lift, add-a-leafs Light Racing UAC's
    I'm looking to get a 3 inch lift on my 07 Tacoma. And was wondering what would be the best lift to go with, looking for a smooth ride and absorbing bumps very well. Tell me your thoughts please!

    yeah it's a little stiffer, but thats what you get with a spacer lift. but no spring compression necessary.

    He was asking BEST lift not cheapest or most economical. If you want suspension to absorb bumps the best, you'll need a high end coilover.....pick a color Icon, Fox and King are the best for bolt on performance!

    Long Travel would be your BEST option....it's still bolt on just a little more involved! lol

    Good thing about our product line for the Tacoma is how modular it is. You can build over time making it better and better depending on your needs or desires.

    Here are some pictures of a few new things we are releasing in the next couple weeks.....more info will be posted soon.

    Please explain to me how the secondary doesn't bottom out before the coilover. I realize you guys use long rod ends to clear the CV's for the coilovers...but is it THAT long of a rod end? I mean there's over an inch and half difference between the bottom of the shock bodies.


    I also find it mildly amusing there's still a sway bar in there :cookiemonster:

    I was thinking the same thing. I was also thinking a bit (being conservative) overkill for factory length arms. Just all seems really crammed in there and unnecessary. Just my opinion though.
