    Is the UCA with 4 degree caster too much ? Should one consider SPC instead of the Ironman control arm ?

    Also is anyone experiencing taco lean ?

    I may have overlooked it but did you get your kit installed? If yes, how are you liking it and what size tire/wheel are you running on it.

    I’m still eyeing this kit but there is a GB for the Tough Dog let that look good too. Only thing with that kit is the coils are not height adjustable but they do have rebound adjusters for the ride.

    I have finally started installing the kit! Truck is up on blocks in my backyard... Taking off the stock leaves and shocks was easy, but I’m also replacing the leaf hangers with Archive Garage Hammer hangers. Those eight rivets are a bitch to cut out.

    Nice and good luck! I’ll be keeping an eye out for your review as well. I won’t be changing out the leaf hangers though.

    Nice. Keep us updated.
    Question: what’s the purpose for replacing the stock hangers? Just beefier? I see a lot of guys running the BAMF hangers.

    I had the kit installed about a month. I have been very happy with it. Did the performance coils and leaf pack. The ride is all around smooth. A little more responsive on the freeway, but more stable too. Took it down some heavily pot holed gravel roads and it was a huge improvement over the off road suspension. Still don’t have 1000 miles on it so not much to report. But I’ve driven freeway, washboard and been off roading and been happy with it.

    Thanks for the review. Good to know and hear from people that have them installed.

    Do you have the adjustment sheet or specs and mind dm-ing me, or posting here? I’m curious to know about the lift heights. I’d like not not max them out, but want my planned 285/70/17s to look good in the wheel well. i might be getting too far ahead of my budget but I like to know things.

    I don’t have any specs. I’ll have to take measurements later. I did measure a week or so ago and the rear I measured to be 3” over the typical factory height with about 150lbs in the bed (Measured from center of the hub) the front I am having the shop take up another 1”-1.5” after I get over a 1000 miles, right now it is pretty much at standard factory height. Wanted to give everything sometime to settle before I finalize that.
    This is my first lift and I didn’t think to measure before I went into the shop. Also didn’t ask for the specs on alignment.
    Hope that helps some.

    I know I'm a traitor that has a Nissan frontier, but I just ordered the foam cell pro kit so I will toss my experience and opinions in here once I get it installed. Also, they have some sales going on right now for anyone who is interested.

    That makes sense and thanks. I’m guessing it can get about 2” like most of the lift kits for the 3rd gens, since they are already 2” higher than 2nd gens. I’ll keep watch for when you update when you increase the lift.

    Nothing wrong with that lol. I’ll keep an eye out for your review as well. They seem to get great reviews but just a small base with Tacoma’s. Hopefully I’ll be order a kit before summer is over. Have to finish bathroom remodel first...

    According to the Archive Garage product page, they "Noticeably improve ride quality, improve handling by reducing rear sway, increase travel capacity (12" typical, 14" max), and vastly increase durability over stock flimsy hangers, which cause the annoying Tacoma rear jitters."

    Hype? Maybe. The reviews here on TW are good -- I don't think I've come across anyone that was disappointed. I'll let you all know if I'm the first. I'm definitely interested in taming the rear stock jitters that I get on pavement.

    Thanks for the explanation. They def seem more heavy duty. Just wasn’t sure if this needed to be on my mod list for the future or not. Looking forward to the update.
