    I'm going with a receiver mounted winch so the weight will only be up front if I'm using it & it can also be mounted on the rear.

    Did you see the tags on them ?

    886 is the older version , more prone to sag

    886x ( or 884x , 885x ) are the newer version coils , less prone to sag

    Sometime around there is where the transition happened , but there was people getting the older coils for a while as stock sold out

    ( not necessarily Toytec )

    Nice. My dirt withdrawl has gotten so bad I did donuts in the wet dirt on the way back from Lowes just to get some dirt on the truck. I'm too busy with 50 hr weeks @ work + relandscaping & remodeling the new house.

    Wheeler's Off-Road sells the correct U-bolts for those springs and MY Tacoma. Contact them for the specs, or just order a set.

    for 2nd gens, can you still use the stock UCAs with an OME 3" lift kit?
    i keep hearing yes and no :confused:

    i dont go offroading at all. which is why im wondering if itll be ok to run stock UCAs atleast for a while til i get aftermarket ones.
