    I like TC better but its really just preferance i think the only diffrence is camburg claims like an inch more of travel due to 1.25 upper uniball compared to TC 1.0

    - Strike Pad vs None

    That's really the only difference, I'd recommend which ever you can get cheaper.

    Look through all the sticky's in the "Long Travel" Sub section before you decide you want to go LT:cool:

    Nothing wrong with used if your find the right kit. I'd recommend changing all the bushings, Uniballs, and heims (if applicable) on the kit, other than that unless the kit is involved in an accident it should be fine :cool:

    No such Camburg kit exists for Tacoma's.

    Read the following:

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/lo...enance-long-travel-advice-after-going-lt.html

    http://ttora.com/forum/showthread.php?t=54326

    Then read them again (if you haven't already), then you should know everything you need to make a decision :cool:

    Buy new.

    The uniballs, bushings, and headache associated with replacing them are not worth it. Plus how many used LT kits were really on "street queeen" trucks? More like huck-a-thon trucks. Unless you know the seller and trust them its not worth it.

    Both brands are great but my vote is for Total Chaos. Pat is very easy to work with and will take as much time as necessary to answer your questions. He picks up on the 2nd ring every time.:D
