This month, we present a bevy of hot new suspensions designed for some of the more popular trail rigs we encounter on our excursions. Each suspension system featured is built with the utmost quality by a reputable company. In addition to the suspension kits, we have also included some popular aftermarket shocks that complement the kits. Enough said - enjoy the guide!

All-Pro Off-Road IFS Toyota Tacoma Suspension Kit
All-Pro Off Road's new front coilover suspension system for the Toyota Tacoma is adjustable to provide 0 to 3 inches of lift and features Walker Evans shocks exclusively. The system includes a spanner wrench, new upper shock mounts, and durable, 650-lb-in coil springs. The shocks are available in a valving selected specifically for these vehicles, with or without a reservoir, or with a 12-way-adjustable, compression-damping remote reservoir.The new upper A-arms are constructed of TIG-welded 4130 chrome-moly and have zerk fittings for easy bushing lubrication. A top-quality, 1-inch uniball provides maximum articulation without binding up like the factory ball joint. All-Pro's arms are designed to correct suspension geometry on lifted applications while providing additional strength and travel. All-Pro also offers matching rear suspension lifts.

Rubicon Express JK Short-Arm Suspension Kit
Rubicon Express's JK short-arm suspension package utilizes the factory mounting brackets and achieves a lift height of 2 to 3-1/2 inches. The kit features rebuildable Super-Flex joints in both the upper and lower control arms. Adjustable heavy-duty track bars and brackets are also included as well as front sway-bar disconnects. The high-strength steel coil springs are tailored for either two- or four-door models. Each kit contains lengthened, braided stainless steel brake lines.
