    Cool thanks.....my truck is mostly a road queen..............but when I get the chance to wheel I def will to an extent. I"ll give the new shackles a look see. Is that what you went with too?

    holy shit......if my quick cherry vodka induced search is correct then I can grab the ones from Iron man for 14 bux each plus shipping. OME greasable shackles on TRDparts4U are 100ish!? am I just drunk?

    Dunno. No squeaks yet actually but I know it'll come some day. They do give you new poly bushings which are awesome

    Have you settled at all in the rear at all bro? Do you still have that factory looking rake? Still sitting at the same numbers posted on OP?

    Maybe another reason to snap a pic a whore your truck out for me? Im so close to ordering the leaf pack, shackles, and maybe a flip kit to finish off the lift.

    No settle in the rear at all and still have factory rake. But I like the factory rake personally.

    Perfect......ya right on. I decided I like the level look but a 2" AAL wasnt gonna cut it. The dakars would have kept the rake with my 885 and spacer. Looks like im grabbing these. Appreciate the quick responses. Prob gonna grab the shackles and CB drop from them too.

    Again, keep in mind you will either need to cut or press the old shackle bushings out if you don't get new shackles. We hacked them out and then ghetto pressed them along with some chiseling

    I would recommend them to anyone looking for just 2". They come with poly bushings too. I would get the greaseable shackles if I did it again.

    I just installed this kit on my 2012 tacoma and love it so far. The ride is very good. I would say the ride is on par with the OME kit on a friends Tacoma. I did use the front spacers included and still have about a 1/2" to 1" rake, which to me is perfect. CV angles look good and I have no vibrations or squeaks. My only complaint would be with the powder coating on the front coils and shocks. Whenever you install the front spacer the ring scratches the shocks up bad (even after greasing the spacer). The powder coating on the coils also chipped up bad from the spring compressors.

    The guy who did the install was very impressed with the kit to the point that he contacted Ironman expressing interest in becoming a dealer.
