any companies out there offering lowering springs?

Anybody know of companies out there who are selling lowering springs or coil-over kits for the front for a 2nd gen 2wd Tacoma? Cant seem to find anyone doing it anymore.

Re: any companies out there offering lowering springs?

If there's anyone offering lowering springs for 2005+ Tacos, it certainly isn't Eibach.

Their current catalog only lists lifting springs for 6-luggers.

Re: any companies out there offering lowering springs?

If I remember right, there's a place in Hartford CT called super spring or superior spring and they make custom set ups whether it be commercial like dump trucks, older vehicles etc, I'm not sure what they need for dimensions as far as thickness, or spring rate. You can try to call them, I've done business with them through my work and it was a small shop with a lot of old school equipment.

I don't think any of these guys offer lowering coil springs for 2nd gen Tacomas.

Re: any companies out there offering lowering springs?

I had an Eibach spring sent to Coil spring specialties in kansas back in 13 ,I had them check the spring rate and make me new a new set with 500 lbs spring rate ,Total was 285 for the pair . I had them make it 1 inch lower than the eibach . The vehicle rides very stiff ,It's just where I want it ,auto cross and track days .I have the order # and can call them and see if they still have the info on the spring .I do remember I had to cut/trim something so it would fit better .I,m also running drop spidles .LMK

Yes Please do-Thanks! This would definitely help. Curious what kind of drop spindles do you have?


Thx.
