    does anyone have ori struts in a LT 2nd Gen Taco ? im thinking of buying some ori struts and really am curious of what people think. i think its alot cleaner . and some people say they work way better then coilovers and they are lighter and no bump stops and there about the same price. thanks

    IIRC, they did a test with them vs quadruple bipass kings, and they performed better and stayed cooler.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    They have not really been tested too much on IFS Tacoma's at hight speeds they work very well on the road and crawling with IFS we have just yet to test them with LT on our end. KOH trucks run them at high speeds but they are much lighter then our trucks. There is one guys on TTORA with LT running them but I haven't heard any feed back on them.

    That said on my solid axle rig they handle nice at speed soaking up the whoops nice (Well the ones I take no desert here) But 60+ on rough roads with 3' whoops that send you air born they take it nice :D

    They'll probably work for you then. For true desert running if stick with co's. Some of the disadvantages with these would be possible shock fade or loss of pressure. There is no coilover to hold up the truck.

    I wouldn't base your decision on looks, go with what will work for your needs.
    I will find it, I saw a link in Jerry's thread which took me to another website.

    They don't have fading issues as much as you would think they stay very cool. The loss of pressure issue is still there for sure but you would have to brake something for that to happen.

    Would I race them on a Tacoma IFS i don't think so. Would I run them on my weekend toy sure would. If you ran a duel set up with ORI's with LT I think they would run awesome once you get them tuned.

    you should be able to bash them as hard as you want, like he said above KOH rigs race through boulders the size of busses with them.

    Yeah I believe it. Air shocks have been around forever. If they can hang out at the hammers I'm sure they'll also work for most others here. Not sure about a trophy truck running 100's of desert miles though. My truck rides fine with coilovers so I don't see trying them.
