    RCD Suspension systems is soon releasing there 6" suspension systems for the 2005 and newer Tacoma's soon. We at Downsouth Motorsports are very lucky to be the first ones to receive the new kit! We are going to do a complete installation write up along with pictures to illustrate the quality and craftsmanship of there product. This is a great product and is a breath of fresh air to the Tacoma suspension world that currently only a few kits available. Some of the key features include specifically valved full length Bilstein 5100's at all corners, Replacement spindles, stainless steel compression struts and stainless braded brakelines. We are anxious to get the kit installed and look forward to writing up the install... We are also going to be taking backorders for the kits as well!

    Good evening,

    As far as I know, they have not been tested on the '09 Tacoma with VSC....

    I believe they are working on that now......

    Thank you,
    Sonny

    Thanks.

    Vehicle Stability Control.....

    In RCD's Press Release I just read it states that there kit will work on a
    vehicle with VSC, but due to the sensitivity of VSC that it may need to be
    re calibrated after the kit is Installed......

    Good morning,

    RCD just released there Press Release on the Kit and
    It has a MAP/Retail price of $2400.00 and I believe the kit
    will be in the area of $2100.00-$2200.00 shipped in the lower
    48 states via Ground...

    Also it looks like the kit with work with the VSC....But it may need
    to be re calibrated after the kit is installed..

    I am VERY interested in this new 4.5 lift!! I have no desire for 35" tires and I don't want to have to cut the cross member with a 6" lift. Does this lift require you to cut the cross member when installing?? I was wondering if it would be possible to remove this lift and bring the truck back to stock easily.

    My main interest in this lift is to get rid of the tire rub with my 33's on a 3" Tuff Country spacer lift.

    Also, what is the difficulty installing this lift? Thanks

    This lift does require you to notch the crossmember.
