    Alright, I just got my first Tacoma. Took it wheelin for the first time and found out that my rubber bushing on top of my shock is shot, it gets to banging around in there. The problem is that I have no idea what kind of setup this is or who to go to for parts. I have tried searching all over the forum and google to no success. I can't seem to find anyone that has the upper A arm deleted. I have no idea what kind of setup this is, or what it is called if it has a 'name.' Any help as far as what this is, who might make it, and where I can get parts from would be greatly appreciated!

    Looks like an old Trail Master lift. You can get a Gabriel strut to replace the worn out one....cant remember the part number though.

    Trail Master. That's probably the forth one I've ever seen.

    A very poor setup, i'm sorry to say. You really need to get rid of that and get an upper control arm back in there, along with other factory components. Basically I would recommend starting over on the suspension.
