    If you’re looking for the best ride quality and something you can rely on, AccuTune Offroad has the best suspension kit for your 05+ Toyota Tacoma.

    We have stage kits using products we trust. We only use quality products that we have tuned, installed and tested. We have done all the work so you don’t have to worry about needing more than what the kits includes. These kits are complete and you should not need anything else to install this on your stock Toyota Tacoma.

    Variations in kits: Kits are labeled as Stage 1 through Stage 5 and increase with price, performance and parts included.

    All Kits include upper control arms, rear leaf spring kit, u-bolt flip kit, rear bump stops and custom tuned front and rear shocks (except IFP shocks).

    Not sure what you want and have some simple questions? Take a look at our Tacoma & 4Runner FAQ page

    [​IMG]
    Stage 1 Suspension Kit The Toyota Tacoma Stage 1 kit has everything needed to lift your Tacoma and provide a smoother ride on or off-road. Up front, the Fox 2.5 IFP coilover shocks are built to handle offroad driving and better street performance. In the back we provide a set of custom valved 2.0 remote reservoir shocks with an Icon Mini Pack add-a-leaf. Our Stage 1 kit for Tacomas is a great entry level choice with quality components.

    [​IMG]
    Stage 2 Suspension Kits Stage 2 suspension kits are an excellent value and upgrade the front coilovers to the remote reservoir version. The 2.5 remote reservoir coilover shocks are custom tuned to work in conjunction with rear 2.0 remote reservoir shocks. With both front & rear shocks tuned, you will get more bottoming out resistance, less brake dive, and better handling than off the shelf shocks. When ride quality is important mostly on street with the occasional off-road trip, the AccuTune Offroad Stage 2 kits are a great option.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Stage 3 Suspension Kits Stage 3 Tacoma kits are very popular for off-road enthusiasts looking to upgrade their truck with more accessories and go off-roading more frequently. These kits include upgraded 2.5 diameter rear shocks paired with Icon Mini Pack to provide better performance on Tacomas which see a lot of washboard, or are just driven hard. If you want a great mid travel suspension system for your Tacoma look no further than the AccuTune Stage 3 kits.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Stage 4 Suspension Kits
    Stage 4 Tacoma kits are our most popular mid travel suspension system. These kits come with a full RXT leaf pack replacement instead of an add-a-leaf like Stages 1-3 have. The RXT leaf pack has 3 stages that can be customized for lift height and weight. With 2.5 shocks front and rear, these kits are capable of tackling the roughest terrain. For a serious off-road enthusiast looking to add a lot of accessories and still drive on the street, the Stage 4 Kits are the way to go.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Stage 5 Suspension Kits
    If you’re looking for the most suspension travel on your Tacoma without going to a long travel kit, the Stage 5 kit is for you. These kits come with everything the Stage 4 kit has, but with a weld on rear shock relocation bracket and hammer hangers to let the custom length rear shocks travel 2.5 to 4.5” more. This is the ultimate kit for hardcore off-road driving. With custom valved 2.5 shocks front and rear, these kits are capable of handling big rocks and big whoops. For the ultimate Mid travel Suspension system for your Toyota Tacoma, the Stage 5 Kit from AccuTune Offroad is the best.


    Shocks with Compression AdjustersThe kits with an “A” means they come with shocks that have compression adjusters. This means the front and rear shocks can be manually adjusted to compensate for added weight or more aggressive driving. Shocks with compression adjusters are a great option for those who load up with gear for an off-road trip, or like to stiffen up the compression valving for more bottom out control. Fox 2.0 adjusters work on Low Speed compression which changes handling, g-out performance, and bounciness. Fox 2.5 adjusters have the largest adjustment range and have separate adjustments for low and high speed compression [read more here]. King 2.5 adjusters tune mid speed compression which impacts high speed compression mostly when fully open and low speed compression mostly when fully closed.


    Shock Tuning Options for Tacomas

    [​IMG]
    Adventure Tune
    – This tune will soak up everything on-road and off-road. Perfect for blasting fire roads in comfort or hitting those nasty potholes on your commute. It is soft and compliant on small bumps and our flutter stack valving progressively stiffens up on the bigger bumps to prevent bottoming out. This tune is ideal for those who plan on putting a lot of miles on their vehicle.

    [​IMG]
    Dual Sport Tune
    – This tune provides a lot more off-road capability and more on-road stability (compared to the Adventure Tune) at the expense of comfort. The additional stiffness on small and large bumps makes it great for hitting rain ruts, bigger g-outs and whoops without bottoming out hard. Larger tires (37”+) can help smooth out the on-road ride, which is noticeably stiffer than the Adventure Tune, but still acceptable for enthusiasts. The Dual Sport Tune is Ideal for vehicles with taller lifts, bigger tires and still get driven to the trail.

    [​IMG]
    Trail Tune
    – This tune is all about off-road performance. The valving is designed to take big hits, and run large whoops without bottoming out easily. This is a great tune for a highly modified vehicle looking to go fast through whoops, g-outs or bumping up big ledges and rock crawling (low psi). We would recommend the Trail Tune for someone with a dedicated off-road vehicle that is ok with a rougher ride on the street.

    I'll be random annoying question guy - do you guys carry Bilstein 6112 sets, if so have any in stock? For gen 2. I already have nice UCAs, only looking to swap those out so I don't need a whole kit.

    It's only annoying if you didn't look at our website first ;)

    No we do not carry Bilstein shocks, just Fox and King.

    Be cool if you can customize the kit a little more.

    If we sell the parts and know it will work, we are happy to make changes to fit your needs. In fact, we have this product page that allows you to swap leaf packs, upper control arms etc..

    What's the rough turn around time per order? I'll be getting a kit from you guys once I'm a little further into my build (just so I know what weight to account for) and I'm curious how far out I should order so I know when to expect it? I'm looking at the stage 4a Fox kit.

    Lead times on all parts are changing all the time, and still not guaranteed. For the time being, I would assume it will be 3+ months.

    I will shoot you a message with approx lead times on that specific kit.
