    Any tuning needed?

    I want to get 16" rears but worried that shims and stuff will not be readily available.

    They ride good without tuning but these were valved for the Tacoma, the generic shocks from profender will just have base valving and need to be tuned to suit your needs. Profender has all the shims in stock as far as I know just not listed on the site.

    If you can run the eibach coils on stock struts, bilstien 5100's, or ome struts then they will fit on these shocks. The profender shocks are meant to run stock coils and I'm running ome 885x coils without issue.

    also what kind of warranty do you guys offer for the people who use their shocks and beat on them the way they are intended?

    Yes, they are made for use with stock type coils, so if they fit the stock shock they will fit our shock.

    2.5 bypass is the largest, 1-year against manufacturing defects.

    Well goodluck with the new product, curious to see how they handle. When do you plan on going to bigger shocks like 3.0 x 18s and such?

    The coilovers are at the lowest setting but the ome 885x coils gave me 2.25 inches, just waiting for my wrench to arrive so I can adjust the collers to level the truck side to side.
