    Talked with a tech today at SPC. They said these light racing adjustable UCAs are only for raising not lowering tacomas. That the angle for the pivot joint would not be good. I commend you @Torspd for all the research you had to do with your Toyota Tacoma cause Nobody really lowers 4x4 tacomas.

    I don’t have a build page... It’s just a tundra racing kit on a tacoma 4x4 sport. And I custom cut an xrunner body kit to fit

    Ultimately, I'd like to get uniball UCA's, but the time and cost didn't permit back then.

    Sweeet! Got any pics? And im curious how much did you trim your stock mud flaps? Mine are dragging whenever i back into my parking space at work, so thats quickly moving up on my to do list.

    Also, do you know by chance how much your wheel/tire combo is with the new 285/55/20s? Ive been considering a set of t4r limited wheels like you more and more lately..

    Blower is going on mine this weekend and hopefully i get the front lowered in the next couple of weeks. Should be getting the lowering coilovers assembled this weekend too!
