Hello all, I have just fabbed and installed theses spindle spacers for the 1st gen Tacoma. Made the world of difference. It will give you the same drop as a ball joint flip however will retain the same steering geometry as stock in the lower control arm assembly. This results in no bump steer. The problem with doing a ball joint flip is that it changes the lower control arm geometry and will give you toe out under compression as the steering tie rod is at an increased angle relative to the lower control arm. Toe out is twitchy and will make the truck pull to the direction the bump occurs. I would like to offer these to the customtaco community. I have a couple of these prototype sets available for 50 bucks a pair. If any one is interested, give me a holler and I would like to produce more for the future.

2.37" height.
I'm on 18" wheels. You can run 17's. Not sure of 16's but depends of the wheel offset. The further the wheels are out, the more clearance you will have of the steering components when the steering is at full lock.

I used to have the ball joint flip and QA1s, then i unflipped the ball joints and just turned the QA1s down a tad more...

The spindle spacer will lower the vehicle roughly 2.5 inches with no modification to spring or shock. I have the QA1 coil over setup and can adjust from there. I have just finished making some tabs to relocate the brake line mount a little higher also that I can throw in as well complementary. Let me know. I am currently working on upper control arms as well.
Thanks!
