    Anyone know the part # for the sway bar relocation kit? My order didn't come with it - wondering if I can get it individually.

    Edit: I think I found it but it only says 2005-2017...Is it actually the same for a 2018? Part # 8001192.1

    there’s honestly no reason to take the tie rod off with this kit, unless you were a square peg round hole kind of kid growing up

    I'm gonna go ahead and assume that almost any relocation block will work since they all seem to have nearly identical mounting points.

    If a picture is worth 1000 words, what is a video worth?

    Funny that another Tacoma TRD Sport was driving by.

    No cutting of anything needed with my set up.

    No vibration after added the tapered blocks. I didn’t add them initially because I wanted the front to settle before deciding on the size of the blocks. Before I added the blocks there was a slight vibration which I though was the tires not being balanced properly but it’s gone now that I’ve added the tapered blocks.

    Take this with a grain of salt as it’s my opinion but I believe 2WD’s get more of a lift in the front because there is less weight due to not having the 4WD mechanics. Right now I’m sitting close to a 3 inch lift in the front and that’s after a couple of hundred miles of driving.

    Specs:

    2016 TRD Sport 2WD
    Eibach Stage 1 on the lowest clip
    Icon Rebound Satin Black 0 Offset 17x8.5
    Nitto Ridge Grapplers 285/70/17
    1.5 Inch Tapered Block in the rear.

    Thank you. I’m on the 1st notch. I had contemplated the 2nd, but decided against it since I was sticking with 265/75/16’s and not running any additional weight. Still happy with this decision.

    This help a lot, Thank you.

    I will do the first notch and 1.5" rear block if my installers can get one. I will be running 275 70 17 on the TRD wheels. Did you have to use the 1/4" spacer in the front?

    Headstrong Off-road supplied a .25” spacer in the kit I purchased from them. I installed it and have no “Taco Lean.” Did I really need it? I can’t say for sure, but I knew I didn’t want to find out that I did and be forced to rip everything back out to correct it.

    I finally put my kit on using the first notch and nothing in the rear but the Eibach shocks. I have an add-a-leaf but feel it is not needed. I like the look and ride as it sits now with the 265/75/16s.IMG_0450.jpg

    Stance looks great. What 1.5” blocks did you go with?

    I did second notch and 2" but I have a bumper. I think I would have been a little underwhelmed with the first although 1.5 in the back might have worked.
