    A few dents ;) This will hopefully populate soon.
    Hi y'all!!

    Just thought I'd post something here. I bought a 2005 SR5 TRD with 120k miles, all stock (has TRD Bilstein suspension and TRD exhaust) from my parents (I've spent the last few years driving it, but now I can finally add some mods ). You'll probably find me on the Gen1 forum asking lots of questions about suspension since that will be the first thing I change. I hope y'all have a great day!

    A few dents ;) This will hopefully populate soon.
    I don't have pictures yet, it's all stock for now anyway, but I can put some up ASAP so y'all believe I have it ;)

    I have a LOT of questions regarding suspension. I'm wanting to get more travel and fit most likely 285/75/17 tires. A little more ride height would look nice, but if I can get more travel and performance without it, it's definitely not a necessity.

    I've been researching coilover kits, kind of leaning towards ARB'S Old Man Emu kit or Toytec's. As I researched, I realized I probably should replace the UCA's, and would probably get Camburg's or Total Chaos Fabrication's UCA. Do I need to do the lower arm? Or at least replace the uniball? What about bump stops, are they necessary to replace? Will I need limit straps? And for the rear end, is add-a-leaf sufficient or should I do more?

    Lastly, should I put all of this into a different thread? :p

    I'll post pictures of it stock soon. I'm out of town for a little while and I dont really have any pictures. Thanks for the welcome, y'all =)
    God bless from Oregon!
