Other than the basic design, there are not too many similarities between the factory toothpick coilovers and the 2.5-inch nitrogen-charged Donahoe unit. At a 650 in-lb spring rating (a 30 percent increase over stock), Kreg Donahoe explained that their U.S. made front coilovers sport one of the highest spring rates for the Tacoma. "Eight months of ride-and-drive field testing proved that we needed a really firm spring, and spatial limitations restrict spring diameter (to avoid coil bind and bottoming out the coils). The 650-pound spring was the balance the Tacoma needed."
