I have an 01 tacoma with deavers and fox emulsions in the back and total chaos w/ fox 2.5 coilovers in the front. The rear is bottoming out on me going over small table tops, is there a way I can adjust them to sit a little lower in the rear to sit down in the turns a little more and not bottom out on the landings? Also in the front I have 16 inch springs, shoud I go with 18? I want the truck to sit somewhat level and still have good handling in the bumps. Thanks

I don't think you can adjust emulsions, get some race-style adustable/rebuildable shocks that you can tune to your needs. For the front I'd say you'd be better off giving it a little more pre-load before you go to longer springs.

What size front shocks are you running? 8" im assuming, I know on my kings I had to put 18" springs on, 16" springs on a 8" shock will coil bind. As far as the rear goes, you need to upgrade it, you are out driving the rear end and its going to cause alot of damage.

I heard something about changing the dampening rate on the emulsions? Also what if I put a little more nitrogen in them, I think out of the box they come with 200psi. If I have to entirely change the rear suspension, can I still keep the deavers, or do I need to do something else there too? thanks for your help

the bolt on deaver pack will last you for a while, but you will notice that your rear cannot keep up with teh front, so the faster you go and the more you take on the less it will perform back there... you will find your front end on the ground and the rear in the air..

Thinking about this problem as well. Up front im thinking about going with a 18" 500lbs, (easier to install, less chance of binding).

the rear, since I have to keep my bed, looking into doing demello slant back rear setup with a deaver 8. Hopefully a 12 inch short body will keep the rear from bucking.

I think pretty much the only way to adjust ride height with leafs is to get different size shackles or relocate them on the frame.

if you take them to deaver, they can adjust them for you. i.e. how high you want your ride height, and what kind of progression you want.
