    Thanks all,

    Are these made specifically for the Tundra's and does it matter what Gen?


    I saw them on http://www.boss4x4s.com/Coachbuilder-Front-Strut-Shims_p_352.html but was wondering if the site is light being I never hear of it! I'll try Keith he's been a big help but didnt think to ask him about shim being I didnt see them on DD site!

    Just to throw my .02 in. I talked to Dave over @ Ekstrom (CB) and let's just say he took 30 minutes out of his sch to talk to me and make his suggestions to the set up I want to run. If CB shackles are what you want, then nothing like getting them from the company that fabricates them. They accept PayPal, just have them invoice you.

    Hope this helps.

    Best way to get ahold of the man for me has been email...tell him what you want and he will send you a PayPal invoice.

    I talked to Keith when I had to get my carrier bearing drop. His assistant or secretary (whichever answers emails and phone calls) had up and quit on him and put him behind in a big way. So I wouldn't give him too much flack....
    We've all been there huh? @geno0506

    Sorry I was unclear, I meant Coachbuilder. In my lift plan I would like to maintain a close to factory rake as i plan to tow boat/camper. So I am not sure if the Toytec shackles can do that with a 3" front lift.

    As stated above ej63090, give Dave a call. He will let you know what shackle will work for you. Some guys have said they can't reach him, maybe I got lucky. You can try emailing too.

    Oh I know I was just referencing you saying to give Keith a call. I ordered some carrier drop bearings not even a month ago, and hadn't heard anything within a week (shipping notification, tracking nbr, or even an order received statement). Opted to email him and PM him on here. After a couple days he finally got back to me and explained the situation.

    Just letting the OP know if he decides to go to dirty deeds for his shims not to worry or give Keith a hard time.

    Come to think of it...I have no idea why I quoted your post.....:bananadead:

    Tell me about it. Had a LONG ASS DAY but now I'm pulling into the gym....ending it on a good note!!

    The equivalent of taking a hacksaw and BFH to your shocks for "wifey approval" for a suspension upgrade.......I approve.

    Call Dave (@Coachbuilder1). Try calling him again. I placed an order on Tuesday. He answered on the first ring and was super helpful confirming I was getting what I needed/wanted. Shims were out of stock but expected in very soon. Think he told me had 100 coming. He gave me the forum discount and had an invoice over within minutes of hanging up. There are some great vendors selling his products but it was nice to talk to the guy who actually makes them.
