    Nope. I'm one of those boring people who doesn't partake.

    I don't get emails from the forum either. Just have a browser open at work and check it when things are slow. Nights are usually slow, so I get to read a lot. :D

    As stated everything you NEED is included or swapped over from your factory stuff.

    That being said I’ll share what I also bought as my truck has 80k miles.
    3k mile take off TRD Springs I had powdercoated Barcelona Red to match my truck.
    New top hats
    Readylift front sway bar relocation kit
    Diff Drop kit
    New Rear Shock Bushings
    Coach Builder +1 shackles
    Rear carrier bearing drop kit

    Honestly probably overkill but with the sale/Group Buy savings probably well worth it.

    As for the install it is easy and straight forward. Did mine in the driveway on Javier stands with no issues other than a seized rear shock top nut. But my truck is older.

    Hows that work? Your truck going to be out of commission or did you buy a second set and have them ready to go?

    Second question is how long it take to get then painted and cured?

    For leveling it out did you really need the diff drop and swaybar relocation kit? I read that anything less than 3 inches should be plug and play shocks only.

    so just to be clear the front will be able ti be lifted in one of 3 settings correct? I was thinking the 2nd spot, so i dont get a rough ride. Or am i totally missing something?

    My powder coater had my stuff about a week. I had my sway bar and SDHQ ABS sensor guards done as well.
    He is also very busy.
    I bought a 2nd set of springs so I did not have to worry about down time.

    Are they needed probably not. For this much lift. Different theories of thought. Anytime you change the geometry you want to get everything back to a close as possible. Is it enough to cause that much added wear on your CV joints likely not but I already have 80k so figured I get them back as close as I could.
    In regard to the sway bar relocation kit again not needed but sway bars already limit travel compared to them not being there so I want as much articulation as possible as I do actually off road but am on the road enough I don’t want to just pull the bar.


    1st ring = no lift
    2nd ring = 1-1.25” of lift
    3rd ring = 2.25-2.5” of lift
    4th ring = 2.25-2.5” of lift with winch bumper
    Of course all varies a little by truck.

    I am on ring 3 and the ride is absolutely fantastic. In theory dropping a ring or two will give a better ride.
    Though I am not sure how much you will notice it with the progressive bump stops and ZRT that the Falcons included that other lift struts that reuse factory springs.

    Friday morning bump to see if we have anymore takers on this deal!


    Also, I have a question about the stock coil overs. Are they marked or numbered in anyway to indicate the driver and passenger sides? I only ask because I have found a good local deal on some take offs, but I want to be sure I don't wind up with the dreaded Toyota lean after all is said and done.

    If my memory serves me right, the blue dot is on drive’s spring and yellow dot on passenger’s. It’s been a while since I pulled the springs, so I’m not 100% sure

    For Tundras the Blue dot SHOULD be for the drivers side.
    Also when you take the coilover apart the drivers spring is noticeably longer.

    The top hats are marked with an arrow and the word out. That arrow will line up with the zerk fitting on each side of the Falcons.

    The bottom pigtail of the coil points to the drivers side for both springs.

    On the passenger side the pigtail will be pointing away from the zerk and on the drivers side the pigtail will be pointing directly toward the zerk fitting as illustrated in this picture.

    Are these going to ride similar to the 6112 set up? I am on the fence about hopping on this or waiting for the Bilsteins...:monocle:...Mostly pavement driver but hit the mountain roads a good bit.

    Granted ride is somewhat subjective and other suspension and tire/wheel aspects play a roll but these ride worlds better than the Bilsteins and Fox 2.0s in my book.

    Blue/orange - driver side
    yellow/gray - passenger side
    I also believe the driver side is slightly longer than passenger
    I can answer better Saturday

    I'm considering going in and appreciate your work French-Avacado, but have one concern: I read a recent install by a forum member. They used the "level" perch and it resulted in 3-inch lift. They had a tough time getting an alignment and have since moved it down to position #2. They were using the stock coils. I would hate to do the front install, then have to re-do it. I have about 2 to 2.25 inch lift maximum to work with, anything above that and I won't be able to park in my garage.

    I am not an expert perhaps not even an amateur. I did not see the post to which you refer. It seems to me as a novice that you should be able to compare your old and new coilover set ups to determine the lift. I would defer to others that have installed like @Black
