    Front leveled, now back needs to be stiffened (coil question)

    Here is a pic of the gold rings I had referenced. They were on the shock acting as a spacer between on the mount where the coil goes.

    Front leveled, now back needs to be stiffened (coil question)

    @RTaylor How much does the "2723" lift from stock height? I've read about .75" Right now my back end is sits a half inch lower- I am fine with raising it. **ALSO** I don't have extended control arms on the front- they are MAXED OUT- does raising the back end effect the front geometry with...

    Front leveled, now back needs to be stiffened (coil question)

    I thought about matching- truthfully, not 100% happy with the TJMs- they are kind of soft. Not sure if it is the slight lift in the front or spring. Was going to do the back right with OME and eventually switch the fronts if ride was still off. Truck has a side to side sway I don't like...

    Front leveled, now back needs to be stiffened (coil question)

    Hey - I've searched the threads and pretty sure I should go with the OME 2723 springs on back and new shocks. I want to double check because I learning about this and want to verify my research was right. This past summer, I got a deal on TJM XGS front shocks and coils. It originally lifted...

    Radio resets when I hit the brake!

    This throws me for a loop. It happens periodically. Once a month for a day or even a single trip, every time I hit the brake the radio cuts off and resets (as in goes blank and then the Toyota logo appears). I don’t have to hit the brake hard. It can be a slight tap so I don’t think it is the...

    265/255 skinny tires?

    Bumping. Curious what ever came of this? I was just thinking of going to a 275. Right now my front end is leveled and I want to go as tall as I can fit. I might actually bump the truck up an inch or two with the upcoming tire purchase. But, if I don’t, curious what I get from 275? What...

    Question on KDSS

    I just had TJM shocks and coils installed on my '11 w/ 106k miles to level the front end. I don't think the shop did anything with the KDSS system because I tried to do the work myself, couldn't open the valves (rust) and decided to take it to a local Land Rover Specialist (there is not Toyota...

    2 in Strut spacer help!

    This one hurt to read- I went through the same things last month. Looked like such an easy job. I am handy- could build you an entire house- but this project stumped me as well. I lifted my front end about 1.5" with a front spring update. Personally, I like the stock springs better than the TGS...

    More than 2” of lift - new UCA required?

    I am about 2" on the front with no issues on the original UCs. I recently had the truck up to 3.5" and definitely needed new ones. So the cutoff is somewhere in there. I ended up adjusting the shocks and going lower because of this.

    Ride height question

    So you can use spacers from an 80 series? I can’t find anything that says 200 specific.

    Ride height question

    What spacer? I am having a hard time finding one. Is that the 10mm packer you mention? Did you have to get new uppers on the front? Thanks a million!! This has been bothering me all week.

    Ride height question

    I am getting ready to put the 2702 on my 2011. Was going to keep stock springs on back for now. Any advice in this? Will I end up with too much lift up front? I noticed that @tominboise said he thought about it. What did you end up doing?

    Bought OME 2702 front. Do I need to upgrade rear or control arms?

    So here’s the predicament. I found a good deal for TJM shocks and springs. Put them on my truck earlier this week. It kept rear suspension in back. I didn’t expect that big of a lift, (4”) total .. that is what I got! Took it to a local shop they said I’d have to lift the back but ALSO get new...

    Snorkel options?

    The snorkel is pretty solid on the truck. I’ve driven several fire roads- don’t push the truck and avoid scratches anyway- more worried about that then damaging the snorkel.

    Snorkel options?

    Yes. Or backwoods did- nick Atwell is the guy who owns it. I am going to send him a text to chime in here. He may have more if interested.... or at least advice.

    Snorkel options?

    I have the ARB. I didn’t install it myself. Wifey made it a Christmas present last year and Backwoods Overland in Maryland installed it. I don’t think he had any problems.
