    About to order some goodies from Toytec and want to make sure I get in all in one order.

    I have 887s and 5100s in the front, wondering if I should get the bro lean spacer for the driver side? Is the lean more noticeable on stock springs only?

    Which kit is this, so I can get the same one (vendor & kit # if possible), this looks perfect. So I can order with no questions.
    Stock UCA's?
    What rim?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone has a similar setup as the one I'm planning on doing. Plan is to go with fox shock 880-02-418, 985-24-118, with the combination of a AAL for my 2016 Tacoma. I picked up some UPC and achieve garage hammer shackler hangers that might give another 1/2 inch to the rear. I'm wondering if a diff drop front spacer and/or drive shaft shims are required? What extended brake lines does everyone get?

    Anything else I might need to do the install?

    ha ha, damn auto correct!! So I am running quite a bit of lift on my truck, roughly 3.5 inches and do not run a diff drop. No vibes at all and my CV angles are great. The one spacer I did run is the PME carrier bearing drop. Definitely something I would recommend.

    Sorry man, just saw this. This is my buddies truck and he's running this kit.

    http://toyteclifts.3dcartstores.com...with-Bilstein-5100-Front-Coilovers_p_364.html

    Still with stock UCA's though he's wishing he spent the money on some new ones and the wheels when this pic was taken were 17.8 fuel trophy wheels. He's running my old Method roosts now.

    Thanks man, appreciate it greatly.
    Why's he wishing he spent the cash on UCAs? Issues?

    On any big bumps and even some speed bumps he's maxing out the upper ball joint which is limiting his suspension travel and almost feels like he's hitting bump stops.

    So i just lifted my 2018 with 887 coils and Bilstein 5100's. I get the feeling I am hitting bump stops or bottoming the suspension out when I hit speed bumps kinda fast sometime. Would I benefit from UCA's ?

    absolutely. The problem is that the UCA's are really at their max. You'll be able to get an alignment but down travel will be limited by the upper balljoint. When the suspension droops out, the upper ball joint is going to max out against the cup it sits in, thus causing that thud that you're feeling. Hopefully that makes sense?

    That definitely makes sense thanks! I guess I will be calling Marie at HeadStrong to order a set of the Light Racing UCA's
