    Hey North Dallas peeps, anyone got access to a place and would be willing to help a build newb add some stuff to my tacoma? I've decided I'm going to keep mine until we at least have another kid(if that happens). I have a 2009 DC. I already have Bilsteins all the way around, .75 in front. I have the following waiting to be put on:

    EIBACH COILS
    LR UCAs(just in case)
    Progressive leaf Springs for rear.

    What ya'll think? I can provide food/beer/water whatever. I'd like to see how it's done and possibly help just so I can further my auto expertise :) Anyone else out there like me that needs stuff done? Maybe we can do a bigger meet and build?

    Thanks! Thomas

    I've had all the parts...just needed incentive to do it. I was tinkering with a TUNDRA but dam, I'm not gonna get 12mpg until I have to :). I mean is this something someone could do in their personal garage? I just worry about the springs, from what I've read, that's the most dangerous part?

    The coils and the decompression. Ya, I'd rather not have to pay plus I wouldn't know how to do in the future if I wanted to.

    Before I peg a date with anyone, is there anything else you guys can think of parts wise that I'll need? Again, already have the Bilsteins installed. I have 2 eibach coils, the driverside spacer, LR UCAs new in box and the progressive leaf springs new in box. Do I need anything else?

    This can be done in a garage. I may be able to help. Spring compressors are much easier if you have an air impact gun.

    Thanks man....I don't have anything other than a POS socket set so my tool availability/knowledge is low :( Someone needs to help me quick before I do something dumb and trade it in for a TUNDRA. :)

    Ya, I've watched that a few times when I first bought the stuff. I don't feel comfortable going at that alone not having mechanical skills. In other words, I'm a weiner.

    I am willing to help & have a few tools. Let me know and if I am in town will be there. Also if anyone is interested I have my original leafs for a 2012 sport in my attic that I took off at 250 miles as well as the floor mats removed at the same time. Shoot me a price or trade and get them out of my garage before my wife throws them out.
