it could go as far as other suspension/steering components like ball joints and tie rods when it comes to the steering issue you mentioned...last time those were changed?
im lowered almost 6 inches in the front with stock ball joints/tierods on 18 inch wheels and some what low pro tires and my steering has great center return...

but in all all honestly a stiff ride is pretty normal when lowering any vehicle, because you no longer have the same suspension travel as before, so by theory you cannot have the same ride quality.

to me, the stiffer the better

I like Toyotas.

Re: rough ride

honestly the ride doesnt bother me that bad. i thought maybe it was my shocks. that no center return on the steering wheel is what gets me. one thing about it, i could crank the hell out of doughnuts,,, no handed..

my truck's steering wheel didn't return to center either thought it was an alignment issue but it wasn't. then one of the lower ball joints broke. you should inspect your ball joints and see if the boots are torn. if they are, there's probably no grease in them. you can try to grease them up, but i would change them out before they break while you're driving or something. i changed all four of my ball joints, got an alignment and everything's fine now.


I'm gonna miss this truck^^
