    Deaver j59 pack 2.5 SAW coilovers, rear bilstein 5100's. Extened stainless rear brake line, deck plate mod, drop in K&N filter, Kenwood headunit & pioneer speakers, SnugTop Shell.
    I am thinking about completely re-doing the suspension on my 1998 tacoma 4x4 3.4L. I want to do a mid travel set up, but not sure which suspension company to go to. I was thinking king bolt in coils, camburg upper A arms, deavers in the rear a J59 pack, and some bilstein or king smoothie rear shocks.
    Does anyone know any big differences between the upper A arms from camburg, total chaos, all pro offroad. What about differences in bolt in coilovers from king, sway-away, all pro,camburg, or fox. What about rear shocks. what companies are good. What size is good for my truck, like how long 14in? Idk.
    So whatever input you have would be much appreciated.

    if you are planning on running after market UCA's be sure to get CO that are ext travel. i dont think kings makes them so i'd go w/ icon. i'm biased cause thats what i have and like them ALOT. i also have camburg UCA's and chose those over total chaos cause they have a larger uni ball, are cheaper and are basically the same thing. out back id go w/ a OE replacemtn shock from either icon or bilstein to pair up w/ the deavers. i also have this set up on my truck and am very happy w/ all the parts.

    Pink slider.
    TC UCA's, Icon COs up front, Icon resi, deavers in the back is what I'll eventually do. Might start out with OME/5100s up front, 5100 and Wheeler 5's in the back for beginners since it's like half the price haha

    probably not, sorry

    thanks alot!

    either set up is a good choice but the first is better IMO. i say just go for the icons/ deaver set up because do it right the first time cause it's cheaper that way.

    How much are the icon coil overs. Anyone see a big difference in the way the bolt in coilovers ride on/off road?

    a new set of icons will run ya around $900-$1000 bucks but they are well worth it. 1000x better ride on and off road.

    outlaw off road is prob the cheapest place for a set of new icons

    here---> http://outlawoffroadstore.com/22194/72/223/3625/2004_TOYOTA_TACOMA_3.4_V6_GAS.html

    the pic on the website is wrong the CO's dont look like that but the part # is right so you'll be set. they look exactly like the ext travel CO's but only runs those if your gonna run an aftermarket UCA too
