Front Bilstein Coilover

Back to article View Gallery
2 of 6
A 60mm Bilstein shock absorber up front required the Toyota engineers to dump the standard Tacoma tapered spring for these straight coils with a slightly reduced spring rate. The ride height is increased by 13⁄4 inches, effectively leveling the truck. Regular Tacoma A-arms are used, but the suspension is optimized and gains 1 inch of travel with careful application of the shock and special bumpstops.
