    Does this go for the black 940 rear shocks as well?

    Those haven't even left the factory yet.

    FYI, the leaf springs were made in January, just to give you an example of how long it takes parts to get shipped from overseas right now.

    Anyone have any MMR settings they feel are good? Manual says to start all at one and move on from there. Anxiously waiting for the rest of my stuff to come in, but managed to get the archive garage hammer hangers installed today.

    I have a 2020 TRD Pro, just put on the Dobinsons MRA/MRR coil overs in the front and after flexing the suspension on a quite a few runs they have settled in to a 5/8" difference between left and right... Still have the Tacoma droop. Of course I do have a Group 31 Odyssey AGM Battery, Steel front & rear bumpers w/12k winch and full steel skids nose to tail including gas tank... So definitely more weight on driver side. The new coil overs really, really articulate well, took them on the Rubicon this weekend and they are performing much better than the stock TRD Pro Fox Factory 2.5 did... Huge fan of Dobinsons Products, I even have their heavy duty rear leaf pack, just saving my pennies for the rear MRA extended travel shocks to match the fronts & the leafs...

    Hey brother, do you happen to have the DOBINSONS HIGH CLEARANCE OUTER CV STRETCH BOOT KIT in stock by any chance? I tore the outer boot on my passenger side... If I'm going to replace it, I'd rather use the Dobinsons kit than the OEM...

    I cut 2 of mine on the shackle mounts to clear, now grease just pours out the backside, guess the grease channel goes further than I thought... luckily I greased the bolt before installation.. have to order 2 new greasable bolts from you soon @Crikeymike....

    I am running the standard length MRA/MRR and have found on the lower end of the spectrum is decent.. I have not messed with rebound much, and believe I should for the rear.. I do find in certain high speeds the rear becomes unsettled.. and wants to overpass the front (little squirrly)... I typically run on the softer side 1-4 on high and low speed compression settings. still have yet to mess with rebound control. currently running the 111R rear leafs, and the heavy load front coils. 2.5" lift with JBA high castor UCA's. I have since this pic gone to a 285/70/17 grabber atx, these are 265/70/17 duratracs. Unimog on 42's for comparison... this is the NMW north Maine woods.. thousands of miles of logging roads/trails typical speeds are 30-55mph up here depending on road conditions/culverts, and washouts....

    We're just waiting for them to come out of production and shipped to the USA. I'll be letting everyone know as soon as that time comes.

    Hello.. Can anyone provide some pics of 110's rear lift? Can’t decide with icon rtx option 1(1.85 no load height) or 110's(2.2 no load height) and also how is the ride with the 110 over stock? Thanks..

    Here is my truck with the 110's. I'm still very happy with them. The ride over stock is day and night. The stock leafs suck.

    This was after adding 285's and different shell.

    I had the Icon RXT in option 1 and 2 and switched to the Dobinsons 110. In my opinion the 110's are the better leaf pack. The ride is better with the 110's, and with the RXT's I always had a shutter on take off even after measuring driveline angles and correcting with a 2 degree shim. The Icons also started squeeking early on and the Dobinsons have been very quiet. Lift wise I got about 2.25 inches of lift with the 110's.
