    We'll, after sitting on these since Aug, I finally got the springs installed yesterday. Going to try and get them on this weekend.

    Nice!! You're gonna like em, a lot.

    Finally got my fronts mounted up. HUGE improvement over the yellow Bilsteins, especially at speed.

    Went and found some dirt washboard on my way home from work the other day and was quite pleased at how well the truck just floated over it yet, still felt like I was in complete control.

    They seem reasonably priced as well. These may be my next shock once the 6112 wear out.

    @Taco-Bender Looks great! Thanks for posting this up.

    Looks like you went with the level (2") setting. That's what I'm thinking of doing when I get my Falcons.

    Do you have any pictures showing the stance?

    Yeah, level setting with one Coach Builder shim on the driver's side. Hoping the front settles just a little as it looks a bit high in the front. Probably going to end up with the dreaded Carolina Squat when I hook up my boat .

    May have to do shackles or air bags. We'll see how it works out.

    I’m impressed with these and the price point. It looks like all 4 corners for around 1400. Not bad. I’ll be watching the long term reviews.

    Setting 1 is plush as a Cadillac, 2 is close to stock Trd, 3 is rock hard. This opinion is with unloaded bed and front trd stock shocks.

    Hey folks. This may belong in a different thread and please accept my apologies if so. I have an 07 Tundra Doublecab with original shocks (which is why I came to this topic) & 116k miles. I haven't done anything with the truck but plan to start this spring. Need shocks, tires, wheels and want to level (not lift...garage clearance and parking garage clearance to keep in mind). I'm new to playing with my cars but like to do things right and once. Curious, if I got Falcon shocks, what level would you recommend, keeping in mind I don't want to replace other parts by going too high. Also, I want bigger wheels and tires to fill the wheel well a bit more than stock but not have rubbing or make modifications. I'm a highway warrior but my city roads may as well have been hit by Iranian ballistic missiles. Again, happy to receive direct messages if I've broken some posting rules. Thank you very much!
    Dave

    Little Update:

    Once a month I have to drive about 3 or 4 miles on beat to crap, broken up asphalt, with heaved cracks (like expansion joints, but they're not), that'll normally give you that rhythmic bounce, bounce, bounce, teeth jarring, sucky ride. Folks in Tucson will know what I'm talking about. Southbound Alvernon to Valencia Rd.

    Well, today was the day I had to make that trip again and I can't believe what a difference these Falcon shocks made over that stretch of road. It was literally the "Cadillac" ride that people like to talk about. I'm not easily impressed but the difference in ride quality over my old Bilsteins was astounding. Smooth, smooth, smooth.

    These being a middle of the road price point, I can't imagine what the ride is like with the big boy Kings, Icon, ADS, etc. Must be absolutely phenomenal.

    Anybody in Tucson on the fence about these shocks, and maybe wanting a ride, is welcome to PM me and we'll set something up.

    Here is the best side view I can do right now as it's under a awning as I'm driving my 2002 Tacoma. I also did not like the flesh colored bump stops so I used water based Rit dye to soak them. So far after a few days it's working in slowly. 20200118_140436.jpg 20200118_154518.jpg
