combination...

I know nothng when it come to suspension. After reading the sticky, would using a 6in drop down wiith coil-overs give me up to 9in of suspension lift in the front? I just want to know what is the highest possible lift without doing a SAS. If I can get 12in lift( including a 3in body) then I might not go with a SAS which is what I'm leaning towards at the moment.

Re: combination...

Wassup Cuz, I see you from the 808 as well.

The Fabtech, I don't think you can get 9 inches as it only drops the diff 4 inches. So it is like already having a 2 inch lift on there. Something like having a 4" drop bracket and using coilovers with 2" of lift to get 6 inches. I think that max you can get is 7 inches. You will be killing your CV's and ball joints. Your ride will be even more harsh. And if anything, you will only have 1" of down travel left, if that matters to you.

Trailmaster drops the diff 6" so you could get your 9" with C/O's and 12" with the 3" BL. Tuff Country, drops the diff 5" and you could get 8". You will be killing your CV's and ball joints as well.

If your truck is a 4X2, then you will be only killing your ball joints.

Fabtech 6" + 1" + 3" = 10"
Trailmaster 6" + 3" + 3" = 12"
Tuff Country 5" + 3" + 3" = 11"

Check out Peter Parks http://www.parksoffroad.com/tacomamo...acoma.html#sus

On the other hand, why so much lift? Assuming you don't care aobut Recon and problems getting safety checks?

Re: combination...

Howzit....

I donʻt really care about recon and i get safety checks from my uncle....with my tint I cannot pass safety check anyway and as for the height....idk...i just like the look. My taco isnʻt my daily driver so that why I want to go as high as possible and trying to see what my option would be with keeping my independent front before commiting to a SAS

Re: combination...

I forgot about the whiplash kit with 10" of lift. That plus 3" body = 13"

If it isn't a daily driver, why not go straight to SAS.

Just don't get your uncle in trouble. If he loses his safety check license, that is big money.

Re: combination...

I got around 12" of lift with the fabtech 6", dirt logic coilovers + trailmaster 6" spacers, & 3" body lift. truck rides pretty stiff & my coilovers touch my cv axles when turning at full lock.

i forget if it was you or mano who was looking for an extended bodied coil over for their FT lift.... fyi: this discussion is going on with RADFLO. they built (or are building) a FT length CO that is addressing all of the inhenrent CV clearance issues. looks like a clean set-up.

Re: combination...

just stay clear from the fabtech 6" and especially the whiplash 10"...there is no need to go that high..and your ride will be horrible..trust me when i tell you this..do a 3" lift put some better rear shocks, better coilovers..32"s new rims and call it good..6" and a 10" just isnt a good idea..plus running a 35's will kill you on gas and regearing is a must..

cool, that's some very useful info. I'm going to keep my eye on that thread even though I'm not a member of ttora nor do I want to be from everything I heard about that website.
