The rear need to be lifted a little... I saw the truck up close... and Im guessn' he had some serious rubbing ... There's going to be some :saw: cutting involved to get rid of that issue.. and maybe a body lift... he has some large tires on there that caused this issue... It's a clean lookn' truck...

ok, i am just shooting with a Canon A520 Powershot, nothing special, I have talent in videography not photography. Just wanted some personal photos of my truck getting dirty. Also, I do know my license plate is exposed.

thanks for the comment on the truck!

I called Dhoe and one of their reps told me they get 1" more travel than the pre 05+'s
Yep, its a spacer. Thats what i got in mine. Heres the deal. Those coilovers work on the FJ, Tacoma and 4Runner. (Correct me if I am wrong) So being that they work on 3 different vehicles they made them universal, I am sure thats what Donahoe did as well. So after putting them on different vehicles different applications had different needs. Since Toyota did their homework on the Tacomas suspension it has a lot of droop stock. Adding a coilover doesn't add any droop, it actually decreases it. So adding the spacer gives the coilovers another inch of droop. That extra inch its extremely important. As well as the new valving. Scott at Camburg, took mine added the spacer and re-valved them. Its perfect. From now on all SAW/Camburg coilovers will have the spacer adding an inch of droop and the custom valving for the Tacoma. I was the ginnie pig on this one. My truck has the first set with the spacer and custom valving, I was at Camburg on thursday for some final mearsurments at I gained 1.5" of droop at the wheel. Steve was already starting to re-valve their entire inventory of coilovers. Blah. Ask questions Ill answer them. Anyways. The truck performs AWESOME. I hit a big huge speed bump and it was plush, no topping out the shock, no clunk, just smooooth travel.
