    Finally the full kit! Everything you need to fully put those wonderfully versatile 63" Chevy Springs under your rig. We have offered a couple of options so you can fully customize the way the springs are set up on your vehicle. We suggest using the 5" shackles because that will set you up with the 65-70 degrees of angle to prevent your springs from inverting yet allow full flex, but sometimes people want a shorter or longer application depending on what axle they are running. We also have the option what size axle tube you have, because we all know how many variables there are!

    This is the everything kit, if you need something less check out the other option...

    They can be both found here...

    Its not any vehicle specific, more wheelbase orientated. Yours is also in the right wheelbase area to take best advantage of the springs.

    63" Chevys are the best fitting leaf spring for the rear of almost every Toyota, but especially the Tacoma.

    Trying to get as much flex with as little lift as possible. Would 4” shackle work if I moved the rear mount accordingly? Also what is frenching mean? Is it just notching mounting surface to recess it a little?
