    My buddy has the defined kit on his tundra...it's "better" than it was on my Tacoma, due to a heavier truck.

    Go with 62" springs with new hangers and shackles

    The only reason im hesitant too is because I load the bed of my truck with dirtbikes and when I drive back to school in the next two weeks im going to have a bed full of shit including a honda ruckus

    He bought a 2nd Gen Taco so he would be in the same nightmare we were all in.

    i believe i qualify to x2 this lol

    iv put some hard hits on mine and it sucks, better than spring over leafs but hardly. i don't mind it on jumps but it doesn't do too well in anything else

    sell it while its new then use the cash and have DMZ do an install on one of there SUA kits gona be a lot better than the defined kit

    Jordan, Anthony, Krish and I all understand the kits limitations. Mine came off as quickly as possible.

    Heres the new ride, has a lot of stuff that needs done, the priority right now is rebuilding the saws with new shafts, maybe new upper uniballs, and a damn bumper so the fenders dont look like wings, then the rear setup, then wheels, etc. Does anyone know if 8 inch coilovers for a tundra with a total chaos kit will fit on the tacomas, or is that a no due to their top mounting plate?

    Damn, the only thing is if I keep defined it will go on this week, if I go dmz I doubt they will be able to do it until im back in december and then my truck will be down for a lot of desert trips...not to mention im sure the dmz kit is a lot more $$$

    You just picked an expensive hobby. What's a few thousand extra dollars to have a great functioning rear suspension?

    Nice, I thought they renamed the h70's the e30 pack. Read that here I think.

    I have the e30 and just added an extra spring to get it back to where it was pre-sag. Pack works great.

    Yep they are the same pack. I've ran both.
    If you break down to the main leaf, they are the exact same. Does not change geometry or anything like that. The E-30 is a little stiffer and that's what I run because the weight in the rear of my truck. So it really depends on what is best for your build.

    Cool, I've been running the e30 for close to a year now. Mine sagged out about an inch, but we just added an additional progressive leaf out of some f67's to get the ride height back. Looking forward to a few runs this weekend.
