    Just emailed RCD suspension and even though their website is not updated their new kit for toyota tacoma is also available for the 2010 tacoma. I dont remember if it does or doesnt say its for the vsc on the website but the guy assures me that it is capable for the vsc ... just curious as to if anybody has purchased it yet and if it is good because i know its new and doesnt have good reputation yet so if anybody has let me know please thank you

    Hey man I was gonna go with the RCD lift, but after talking to the guys at 4wheelparts.com they have been having problems with these lifts he even took me back to the shop to show me 3 trucks getting worked on due lack of quality on the RCD lift itself, so I walked out of there with a 6 inch Pro Comp lift and new wheels and tires, man those guys cut one hell of a deal for me. But this is just me talking not the manufacturer of the lift.

    Ive heard from other retailers that they like the kit and think it is pretty good quality. I have never talked to anyone that actually has the lift, so I can't give you too great of an answer.

    I doubt the Pro-Comp lift is better quality than the RCD. The RCD Suspensions setup is much better. Using Long 5100s in the front instead of stock shocks with a big spacer.

    The odds of 4wheelparts having 3 trucks in there shop with RCD lifts seems pretty unreal, just for the fact that RCD is not even in there product line. RCD does not and probably never will sell to 4wheelparts. TransAmerica owns 4wheelparts who intern owns ProComp so they will always push Procomp over other brands. And how do I know this you may ask? TransAmerica was one of my suppliers when I owned my shop.

    After having my RCD kit on for 4 days I can honestly say that anybody that says this kit is crap obviously has not driven a tacoma with one on or ever seen one being installed. The only thing procomp or fabtech offers is about an 1.5 inch higher height and an option to run 35's that will probably rub. I have ridden in several tacos with 6 inches on them and the ride was 10 times stiffer than my RCD kit. Maybe that's good for some terrainand driving styles, but for me the RCD was definately the best way to go. The cheapest too.

    +1, Did 4wheelparts (who are known for not knowing their shit) elaborate on what in particular is wrong with the RCD kit?

    I personally wouldn't let 4wheelparts within 20 miles of my truck after reading about the experiences on this board.

    EDIT: Damnit i just realized this is a bumped thread from 3 months ago.
