Questions and answers of the customers

- Q 2016 Tacoma TRD OffRoad 4x4 with 3/4" top spacer(1 1/2"lift), 45lb. winch, ARB bumper-now sits 1"... answer nowA You already know how well truck worked with 1 1/2" of lift, .65 being pretty close to 1/2". Try the 1.1" and be prepared to back down one notch. Better to use OME2886 spring, and remove top spacer. More usable travel, and 2" lift, probably don't need sway bar, because of stiffer spring rate.

- Q 2017 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Off Road, is there any issue with 1.1 lift with the TRD Skid Plate installed answer nowA Newer heard of anything like this, should be good to go for properly designed skid plate
- Q I have 2001 Tundra Access Cab 4x4. I was wondering why I can't/ not recommend use the 4th or 5th ... answer nowA Generally it is not recommended to have more then 2-2.5'' of lift, because it's bad for cv axles and control arms. As acces cab is lighter then double cab, and if the coil springs are in good condition, you may have more then 2-2.5'' of lift and damage the suspension.The diff drop kit is recommended if having more then 1,5'' of lift, it'll be good for cv axles, but control arms and other suspension may not handle more the 2.5'' lift, especially on bad roads when the wheel has full downtravel.
- Q Just purchased a 2017 tacoma off-road. I want to give it a lil' bump. I want to run a 285/75 w/ f... answer nowA We always recommend tire test fitment first, because of diggerent suspension parts condition and different additional weight on different trucks.Can say that sometimes precise castor-camber adjustment or some minor trimming helps to avoid rubbing if the tiress appear to be big for the fenders.Also body lift kit * * * https://bilsteinlifts.com/shop/toyota-tacoma/2005-2015/complete-lift-kits-tacoma-05-and-up/1-body-lift-for-toyota-tacoma-2005-2015/ * * * can be used to clear out more wheel space under the fenders
- A You are right, max height is up to 2,5'' put for 2016+ (3rd gen Tacoma) it is not recommended to have more the 2'' of lift, because it is already lifted 1'' from the factory. Having more then 2'' of front lift may not be good for the suspension.Please note, that diff drop kit is recommended for the 4WD trucks if having such a lift https://bilsteinlifts.com/shop/toyota-fj-cruiser/toyota-fj-cruiser-2010-2011-2012-2013/front-lifts/front-differential-drop-kit/
- A lift less then 1.5'' can go without diff drop kit
- Q My 2016 Tacoma sport is a work truck. Approx 600lbs of tools/parts + people. I don't want extra h... answer nowA The new springs can be used, but please keep in mind they will give you 2'' of lift ( please select 886 Coil option). This option will be good for every day 600lbs additional weight. * * * https://bilsteinlifts.com/shop/toyota-tacoma/2016-and-up/front-lifts-2/2-front-lift-ome-coils-2016-toyota-tacoma/ * * * Then the lowest notch on shock adjustments should be used. If sometimes driving empty or not doing fast while offroading - the stock coils can be reused with these shocks. Then the first or second notch should be used depending on the springs condition.Please note that for 2016-2017 tacoma it is not recommended to exceed 2'' of front lift - the diff drop kit should be used * * * https://bilsteinlifts.com/shop/toyota-fj-cruiser/toyota-fj-cruiser-2010-2011-2012-2013/front-lifts/front-differential-drop-kit/
- A We haven't tested it - it will depend on the rims offset and suspension parts condition. Maybe the castorcamber precise adjustment wil be needed.
- A Usually about 2 nothc. But it depends n particular Tacoma suspension condition. The best way is to measure the front ground-to fender-height and rear and to compare them.
- Q I was wondering if you could PLEASE email me a copy of the installation instructions that came al... answer nowA Please download the manufacturers'manual by this https://cart.bilsteinus.com/pdfs/E4-WM5-Y518A00_1.pdf link
- Q If I set this shock on the highest setting (2 inch) will it preload my stock OEM trd coilover? answer nowA The coil will be cpmpressed in the same way it was compressed before - the spring compression depends not on the shock but on the truck weight.The thruck may be higher on a 0.5-1'' or some less - will depend on your suspension condition, engine weight and how much stuff you carry in the cab, and also on if you have a heavy aftermarket reinforced bumper or winch or not.
- Q does having a manual transmission interfere with leveling the front. 2016 Tacoma TRD Sport 4x4 6spd. answer nowA The type of transmission doesn't matter, it doesn't interfere with the front lift.Please keep in mind, that having more then 2'' front lift may decrease front cv axles life, so the differential drop kit becomes not a bad idea. This https://bilsteinlifts.com/shop/toyota-fj-cruiser/toyota-fj-cruiser-2010-2011-2012-2013/front-lifts/front-differential-drop-kit/ will also fit the 2016 -2017 Tacoma
- Q Will using the 1-2" settings on the front shocks compromise the stock could? Will the 1-2" settin... answer nowA Maybe you are thinking not about transfer case, but the front differential drop kit? Front differential drop kit is always not the bad idea on 4wds. Can't say it is a must option on 1''lift (the truck will go without it), but installing differential drop kit with bigger lifts will make the transmission shafts' life longer.
- A We haven't tested the 5th notch oh these shocks on 2017 TRD 4x4 so can't say exactly how long it will work without issues. Please keep in mind, that the diff drop kit will be needed for a long and safe use of your new Tacoma if you'll lift its front more then 2
The diff drop kit does lessen the angles on the axles in 4x4, not a bad addition.
- Q I have a 2017 Tacoma, do I need any spacers for the skid plate ect..along with these shocks if I'... answer nowA You can use just the shocks to level.
Yes, priced per 2 shocks.
