    The coil says it's an 887 but for the Prado. Any concerns for the Taco with variations in part numbers, if any?

    If you end up replacing the stock Pro parts, contact me I would be interested in buying them from you.

    I saw what was new then (2013) Taco selling for about 65 000 with a 6 inch lift package complete with bro wheels and lights etc.
    Oh and super charger. But still, almost 70 000??

    It is the same part. I spoke with ARB on the phone with the same concern. If you cross reference the two PDFS for the Prado and the Tacoma 2016+ it is the same number. If you want to confirm what i'm saying, give them a call or write a message to them via their website. Awesome guys.

    I looked them up. They are a huge east coast company. Sort of like 4 Wheel Parts. Pretty sure they can write off the arms as promo and still stay in the black. It's a hell of a promo for sure.

    Put a set of Eibach Pro-Truck adjustable shocks(E60-82-007-02-10) on the front of My 2017 TRD Sport. Set to highest ring. Added a set of ToyTec leafs to the rear. Then installed Eibach rear shocks(TT55289). I got about 2.5-3 inches of lift. Seem to have a little problem when going over speed bumps. Sounds like the front is expanding down to some stop which must be the shock fully expanding. ToyTec says drop to the next ring. have not tried that yet requires more cost. Also added a MBRP T409 cat back dual exhaust system. Yes it is louder. I just turn my hearing aids off(HAHA) Wife has not ridden in it yet. Just going to put some ear muffs in the console.

    Are you still running your stock UCA's? could be maxing out the balljoint, which is likely what is happening

    OME shocks have an internal metal bump stop.. maybe the Eibach's have the same thing. OME clunks over speed bumps also, but only if you're over 5 MPH.

    I'd slow down and see if the noise goes away, if it still makes the noise when you're going 2 MPH over a speed bump, then maybe it's something more potentially serious. Remember, you've preloaded the fuck out of the front suspension, it's not going to be completely normal.

    Yes I have the stock UCA's. And yes if i go a little slower it does not make the sound. I still have the stock shocks. Will look for stops on them tomorrow.

    Sounds to me like you are bottoming out the shock. Typically that will happen at speed more when the shock has to react quicker vs a slow easy release. Assuming you used the OEM spring which is longer to begin with, you probably need to follow what Toytec told you to do and lower them to the second ring.
