    No. I've ordered my bilsteins and aal already. Was just wandering around some sights today and came across it, and thought I'd ask

    compared to a "normal" lift, it's amazing.

    just sincerely regret going with Fox. They have a reputation for rusting in salty climates, but I didn't want to have to wait for custom Kings

    and now I need to ship them back to fox because the shock shafts themselves have begun to rust

    I'm eh about my Fox setup. I'm over extending the front shocks already. Maybe it's just the downfall of midtravel.

    Yup. Didn't help the noise.

    overextending? Did you get the extended travels?

    I did. I lifted the rear with a Wheeler's 1.5 progressive AAL so the noise started when I tried to level the front with the rear. The suspension slams at full droop.

    Icon products are good, maybe not as good as they profess (what are they gonna say ? "our stuff sucks, don't waste your money"..:laughing: )



    No worries, we're behind the curve anyway...:)

    As far as the rear goes, I've had just about every config you can have in the rear in regards to a SOA suspension, rear shock relocation, doubles, angled,etc:...

    The 5125's (that Bilstein still makes) I use come from DSMS, the beauty of the 5125's is Sonny can set them up to accomodate from 1.5"-3" lift using the same shock 1.5" = 3.5" +/- travel, 3" lift = 4.5" +/- (up/down) travel..

    Anything over 3" you'll need 10" of travel for rear shocks

    & you have 3" of lift (+/-) ?? I'm assuming....

    Ya know cody, lifting a Tacoma is different than lifting just about any other truck I've ever done...They're just a little harder to configure.. & don't even get me started on the whole back spacing B.S.....

    (honestly, I'd never heard of , nor had to deal with such nonsense on anything else I've lifted)
