    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I vote LR. They're maintenance free and very adjustable. Perfect for a DD truck, and what i personally run.

    camburg coilover setup with uca and aal
    I have the camburg on my 04 and from the time i put them on they make noise when i turn. Ive emailed them alot and called them and all they tell me is to lube it which i do and it doesnt help. So if i were to do it again i would get the TC just for maybe better customer service.

    What are you using as a lube? Don't use wd40 or petroleum based lube use Teflon. Look for triflow Teflon lube

    For a daily driver I would not want to worry about a uni ball squeaking.

    I vote Light Racing.
