    Toyota Tacoma owners!

    One thing I have noticed on this TW forum is a lot of members have Toyota Tacoma's . Well on my Moab trip with my TW on my receiver hitch carrier I noticed my rear end was down some and driving at night I was getting flash a lot by oncoming drivers, so I ordered airbags for the rear on sale for $290. to the door I will install myself and let you know how it works out. 11002895_10204803425197533_1930870013_o.jpg firestone_ride_rite_air_bags.gif no drill kit I want to get it before my California trip.

    That looks like an easy installation. I will be installing air shocks on the Ranger in the morning. Will test them on Saturday going to the wrench and ride hosted by TWBrian.

    Yes I do. Have used it on a f150, a Tundra and the Ranger. The Ranger is the only one that settles a little with the TW on the back. I think the Monroe's will cure that. Will find out Saturday.

    Good deal that should work, I want the air bags so I can also haul my DR650 the bags will do the job.

    I had good luck with air shocks on my 1972 Nova SS.

    FYI There are two recalls on Tacoma trucks. One for frame rust and the other for Rear springs. Toyota frames are rusting in some cases they are replacing the frame. I took my truck in three months ago and only needed the frame treated. They made a mess spraying black tar like substance all over the place. The second recall which is coming soon due to the rear leaf spring breaking and hitting the gas tank.
    If I’m ever on LIFE SUPPORT, UNPLUG ME. Then plug me back in... See if that works. Hidden Content

    Well, Z, mine's a Tundra not a Tacoma, and I didn't use air bags, but I did recently upgrade my suspension.

    7" lift in front, 6" in rear (to level it) and new Cepek 35" Fun Country tires.
