I can tell you that they were released... http://www.donahoeracing.com/pr_detail.php?prID=25

Sorry, I don't have much more :(
I just got off the phone with Wheelers Offroad and they told me the new release/available date would be April 8th.

Here is the email I got back from DR:
They are releasing April 8th and will be available through any of our distributors for $199.00 a piece. Thanks

Donahoe Racing rear Tacoma Shocks

Our new remote reservoir shocks will be released to our distributors on April 8th. As far as compressed and extended lengths go, I am awaiting the actual numbers from our R&D department. What I do know is that the shocks have the absolute most travel using the stock shock mounts. They are longer at extension and shorter compressed than a Bilstein 5100 and will not bottom out.

I am really looking forward to trying them out with an 8 or nine pack of Deavers.

Back to the top to see if the numbers have come in. I have a deaver 8 leaf that I want to install, but I'm waiting until it gets closer to the release date to do so. Will I have to get actual travel numbers from my set up or will there be standard length shocks(if mounted on stock locations) for the deavers?

Considering comprable bilstens/fox/king/racerunner/ 2.0's go for around 150-250 and 2.5's go for 300+ I think it is pretty reasonable for being made for the taco.

From what I've read it should be about 2-2.5" lift for the 8 leaf. If you're planning on going with an AAL, I have heard a lot of good stuff from the deavers. That was what I was going to get at first, but I wanted more lift. The deaver AAL should give you about 1.5" lift, but the best thing from that is the elimination of axel wrap if you were experiencing it, as well as a better ride.
