    Here’s pics of my truck with gs59-220 struts and c59-354 coils. I’ve got about 220 lbs up front. 3” lift and dobinsons UCA installed

    Below is a truck we just wrapped up with c59-314 coils up front gs59-221 struts. Right about 2.5” of lift

    Same suspension combo as above. I’ve found that the c59-314 coils with gs59-221 struts give you about 2.5” of life with no weight up front.

    Same as above. Great suspension setup on these 3rd gens

    Been getting a lot of questions from customers on Dobinsons kits for 3rd gen Tacomas. One of the kits I want to point out is the 2” system quick ride kit offered from Dobinsons. For those of you that want to run a heavy duty Aussie twin tube kit and not spend as much money as compared to the full kits that include leafs, the quick ride kit is the answer.

    You’re getting a complete system but with blocks in the rear. This way it still lifts the vehicle and you maintain factory spring rates in the rear. The only downside of this is if you wanted to carry heavier loads.

    Price is $740 and it’s a great alternative to the Bilstien kits. In additions, the Dobinsons kits include a 2 year warranty. Bilstein will void your warranty if you run aftermarket coils on their struts.

    You can check out more info on the kits here: https://www.mainlineoverland.com/pr...oma-2016-light-load-front-and-quick-ride-rear

    What size tires are those on the pics you posted? Are any of them able to be stored where the spare is. I am getting a Dobinson set up and looking at replacing my tires too.

    Looking at that set thats $740 seems like a great price. Would you say it's a big improvement over the stock suspension in ride quality?

    This definitely sounds like a good option, anybody else on here have their system? I'm definitely interested.

    Really interested as well, seems like another good option besides the Bilstien's. Before I pull the trigger and get some, I wanted to see some more reviews.

    Just installed past weekend. Really liking the ride so far. Seems like a good improvement over stock OR suspension. I went with the 302 spring for a 2” front lift and coupled their shocks with a HS progressive AAL in the rear for a 1.5 lift in rear. Awesome customer service from @eevaldes and @Dobinsons Mike who were great at answering all my questions. I have not taken it offroad yet but our roads around hear are all pretty bad and am digging the setup. C91D8FBF-A7FA-443B-A089-6806A10810DD.jpg
