    Hey guys. I've got a 2000 tacoma and I was toying (no pun intended) with the idea of going with a linked suspension with coilovers in the rear, be it 3,4,or5 link I have yet to decide on. The gas tank is kinda possing a problem with the geometry that I would like to go with. Just wanted to see if anybody has tried this yet and if so how they did it and how well it works. Thanks

    Most that do linked rears move fuel cells in the bed or between the frame rails in the rear.

    Fuel cell and full tube rear end if you are going to the trouble.

    Trailcarnage did this to his Taco I think? Tom, where are you?

    thanks for the info guys. Unfortunitly this thing is still my everyday driver so I don't want to go to wild with it of course I'm probably going to have to comprimise if I'm going to go this route
