    2009 Tacoma TRD Sport DC w/Toytec Ultimate 3" installed.

    Installed this lift a while back and noticed how stiff the lift is/was. Only adjustments i made was to the driver side where i adjusted for the taco lean. I figured it just needed to settle but its been a year or so with the truck being driven for 6 months of that time due to deployments and the suspension still seems to be extremely stiff


    Has anybody else had this issue or know a fix? I won't be able to do anything about it till im home but i figured id start asking around now...

    My truck certainly doesn't have a factory ride after the Toytec. My front end is set to about 2.5", but the ride is very acceptable.

    Now the back end is a different story. I have the Dakar spring packs and they're plenty stiff. I don't really mind though. I wanted to be able to tow and carry a full load.

    My Tocoma rides like truck . . . and that's okay for me.

    I have the TSB w/Toytec AAL. Its basically just the front thats stiff as hell. I kept them at set height they came from toytec and only adjusted the driver side up a little to adjust to the taco lean.

    They're "pre-set" for me was over 4"......just lower them down till your happy and measurements confirm! With 33" MT's I have 38.5" from ground to fender and think hub to fender should be 23".....just don't quote me on that!
