    THANK YOU...Tieman411 just proved what an Id10t he is if he things 285/70/17's are STOCK! The converted tire size is actually 32.7" x 11.2, but the BFG MT KM2's run a little larger than your BFG AT's in the same size, so they are a lot closer than 33".

    This will help with your CV angles ONLY, and not with alignment, you will still need an alignment after lift. Upper Control Arms will help get your caster within in OEM specs, which is what you want, without them they can get it close, but not within specs. Of course if you listen to Tieman, you don't want to be within specs anyway. :D

    Where'd he go anyway? I was seriously curious to know what was included with the stabilizer kit..... it's a neat thing, just WAY too expensive. Hell - you could probably fabricate your own setup like that if you could find where to buy the shorty shock.

    Everyone can talk all the shit they want. The bottom line is Stablizers work my drives straigtht with 33x12.5x18 Toyo MT Tires are balanced caster is good camber is good the steering wheel was just wandering when you hit grooves in the road the stablizers now dampin that way down feels more solid when steering into driveways, speedbumps or whatever. I could give a shit less what fricken tire size who ever has I am telling what I have and what the outcome was. JANSTER you can get this kit for like 160.00 but it's a little tricky to install. If you got the right tools your good.

    Well, now that it's April, it's only natural to miss January, miss February, and miss March. You'll miss April in another month.

    Seriously.... give us more info. Who's making it? When will it be available? Got any links about it?

    You first said $350 and now you're saying $160.

    If you're gonna throw us a bone - you gotta let us know how we can chew on it.

    Cant we all get ALONG!!!

    Ha Ha, but in all seriousness, this site rocks above the rest because of the members. I have tried the others, by just browsing through, and even logged on. But, when you read post with tons of negativity, and rude comments, I'm like damn,,, I mite have asked a dumn question, or posted in wrong section, but if you think hard, how much time did it take to target that post with a neg comment, that maybe we could have used that time to educate or inform,.:rolleyes:

    Thats why I'm here. I know what I want to do, just want to make sure it's not a bad, or irriversable idea, LOL..

    In closing, lets not deter future Tacoma owners or even current, that stumble upon this great site to say, "Damn, if I post, will I be today's target of ridicule or will I find the answer I'm looking for?"

    The Company who makes this kit is FABTECH the shocks are even stamped fabtech. they will be releasing shortly or just call fabtech its no secret just no one has them yet. The company Custom Motorsports who lifted my truck has an IN with fabtech and the got them quick. They said retail was like 350+ I said hell no and since i spent 5400.00 on rims tires 6" lift DIRT LOGICs Coilover's rear shocks installed....I said hook me up and I paid much less. 160 price is YOU install.:)

    Thanks - seriously. It's a neat product. I can't say I'd get one for myself (I don't plan on lifting my truck). I've never seen anything like that - and its pretty inovative and something new. New is always good.

    That's bump steer. It's from the suspension lift changing the angle of your steering linkage.

    Fixing this would be pretty easy. Somebody just need to manufacture a flip kit, so that the steering would attach to the top of the spindle, instead of on the bottom.

    Hey pb2themax, I saw your truck on Car domaine you do really clean work! I can see you spend many hours in the garage!! I can tell your very picky and meticulous about your mods. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions. 1st Where did you get that Toyota Bezel for the Stereo so clean like factory. What Brand stereo? does it have NAV,DVD,and back up camera all in one unit? I saw your custom back up cam very nice. My truck has the JBL 6 disc with steering wheel controls i guess i would lose the controls huh?? 2nd Did the Drive line really help I dont really notice vibration??

    Search crutchfield for an adapter for the steering wheel controls. You can add them to many stereos. PAC-something I think... Can't remember the name of it now, but search around. You'll find it.
