    I just purchased a new 2012 4.0 4wd, double cab, shortbed, w/ tow package.

    The dealer is installing a 6" procompstage 1 lift. I want to upgrade the shocks with kings in front and back. I do tow a boat and this is my daily driver, so i was thinking maybe some adjustable shocks.

    Thing is i don't know that spring rate/ length etc etc to order for the lifted application. I do not Wheel to much and i drive on the beach alot to surf fish.(the newbs on the beach rut the hell out of it)
    Any advise?

    If you're only installing a stage 1 kit, I'd look into a full Leaf Replacement first before getting new shocks & Coilovers. This will make it ride much better then having a block out back. :cool:

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    Get ahold of Sonny at Downsouth Motorsports and ask him. I highly doubt the stealership is getting you a leaf pack as a lift. I bet it's still a block lift. If you are towing I would suggest not just a front coilover but a full lift leaf pack not the crap block and stock leafs.

    They have it for lifted applications: http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-1...current-toyota-tacoma-4wd-2wd-pre-runner.html

    Do you have a Lifted '05-'10 Toyota Tacoma with a Fabtech or Pro Comp kit and you want to replace the front coilover shocks and rear shocks (Optional) with a Good Quality Shock? Look no further,These front coilover shocks can be made to bolt directly into a lifted Truck..Contact us for details or Click the Box Below
