    Lol.

    With the way technology is nowadays, if you don't know how to "search" and expect to be spoon feed everytime, you got issue.

    Did it take you that long to find the posted video? Ummmm definitely not.

    I bought the bolt on 3 link kit, do you have any instruction or advice? I read somewhere that since tacoma use coilovers, I can re-use them on my bolt on 3 link kit.... :cool:

    It’s really simple, I did it on my 1998. I only paid maybe… $700 after I sold my A340E.

    Nah cause i know how to look up info. but not everyone spends all their time on tech. He used tech, found a very niche forum, and asked a question. So help the guy out instead of being a jackass. Maybe he will find better info by doing both searching and posting. God forbid he posts on a forum. You types of holier than thou people are what make places like this suck. Just help people out and you will find that you will be a much happier person.

    I'll chime in....

    Buy a totaled truck from car-part and take what you need than sell everthing else to recoup your lose.

    Or as mention, go the IFS elimination route. It's better!
