2001 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Rear Suspension

Converting the rear suspension to spring-under was fairly straightforward, thanks to Total Chaos spring plates, spring hangers, and shackles. The Deaver F67 leaf packs are production items as well. The cantilever shock system was designed and fabricated by Drew. Instead of the axle connecting directly with the shocks, it connects to pushrods that in turn actuate a pair of custom rocker arms. The rocker arms actuate 10-inch-stroke, 2.5-inch-diameter, three-tube Sway-A-Way bypass shocks. The benefits are an intact bed floor, a high stealth factor, and 16 inches of wheel travel.
