    Depends on your application. The stiff sport suspensions are great for technical tarmac and for trailering. The softer OR feel is good for .. well, off roading. But you already knew this :)

    Looks great, thanks for posting pictures. Did you keep the stock UCA's and if so do you have any wandering on the road?

    Yes, stock UCA’s and no wondering or anything abnormal. Toyota was able to get everything back within spec and I don’t feel like I’ll need to do anything different.

    ok, so I see there are some remote reservoir shocks as an option. What does a dobinson system with those cost?

    2" Dobinsons front and rear suspension, Dobinsons prototype front winch bumper. Coming soon will be rear roller drawer kit, and parabolic rear leaf springs.
    We aren't stocking the MRR's at this time, so they have to be special ordered. $350 per MRR strut as compared to $125 for a gas one, and $300 per rear shock, as compared to $105 for a gas one.

    Later in the year we will be releasing and stocking a 3-way adjustable (compression and rebound) version of these, called the MRA's (Monotube Remote Adjustable) shocks, so we're pretty stoked to get those in. They will be slightly higher priced than the MRR's.

    My truck dropped quite a bit between the sliders and the front bumper. I want to add a winch next. I currently have 5100s and ome 888s. Do you have an option that will pick that front end back up?

    First page has the coil options laid out based on load and lift desired.

    Yeah but the only one that offers 3.00" of lift is a softer suspension.

    C59-354 would be your best bet then. Stronger spring rate than you have, takes more to settle. For 3" lift though, we would normally put those with our GS59-220 with are longer and have a taller coil seat to provide the extra lift. I don't think your 5100's would handle those heavier coils with a raised seat height.

    Nice! I have a similar set up on the way. Same 302 coils. What tires do you have in that pic?

    Thinking about installing the GS59-221 front struts and C59-302 coils I ordered on my 2006 4Runner instead of my Tacoma.

    Reason, I like"3" inch lift heightfrom the OME kit(hrighh not the ride). Although now they've settled to around 2"-2.2" around after sagging a bit. I'm considering (if i install the 221 struts, 302 coils on the 4runner) ordering C59-448 coils, GS59-220, new UCAs for my Tacoma.

    Any reported problems with 448 coils stock weight load? Specifically with CV and driveline angles? Always read more than 2.5" gives accelerated premature wear.

    I got the GTS Dobinsons off Eevaldez, and absolutely love the kit. Took a few hours to install, fit my tires under the truck finally without rubbing non stop, and they've taken 1 hell of a beating off road, and love every bit of it.

    Yep. Great tire. Nothing but ice and snow up here and I use them year round. Went from Ko2’s which I do like however only had the E load in this size which for me was too harsh so I sold them and went with these.
