• Welcome to Tacoma3G.com, a free resource for 2016-2023 Toyota Tacoma owners!

    This website is the passion-project of a USMC veteran/mechanic, @Tyler. I created Tacoma3G.com to share my knowledge of this subject with others and to provide like-minded folks with a comfortable space to ask questions and create 'build threads' within our Tacoma Forums. Now, if the format of this website is confusing to navigate for you, or if you're interested in my full mission and T3G's history, check out the Help and About pages.


Suspension is the system of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. Suspension systems must support both road holding/handling and ride quality, which are at odds with each other. The tuning of suspensions involves finding the right compromise. It is important for the suspension to keep the road wheel in contact with the road surface as much as possible, because all the road or ground forces acting on the vehicle do so through the contact patches of the tires. The suspension also protects the vehicle itself and any cargo or luggage from damage and wear. The design of front and rear suspension of a car may be different.

    UCA's and Caster

    For UCA's without caster adjustment, I see they mention caster is built in to accommodate for the needed caster.

    Knocked out of alignment

    Had someone run a shuttle for me on a raft trip (anyone remember Deliverence?) They must have rallied the 3rd gen pretty hard. The camber on one wheel is out visibly, the spc bolt has moved in it's slot. Is there anything other than 150 ft lbs of torque that can help keep it in place? Who knows...

    What's in the Eibach box?😆

    I can't wait to try these Eibach coilovers 2.0 and the sport rear shocks with the Icon AAL and sumo bump stops! I'm so tired of nose dive, the lean when cornering...and riding the rear bump stops on any whoops more than 4 inch deep 😆 and only 500 pounds in the truck including me! The Taco has...

    Educate me please!!!

    I am joining this thread to learn all I can about Tacomas. The plan is to purchase a used SR5 and build it into an overland rig for my son. Due to the altitude, I am leaning toward a supercharger. His school is above 7,200ft and he hunts above 9,000ft. I am leaning toward gearing 5.29 for 35s...

    Are UCA's really necessary?

    Hello all, I recently picked up my 2021 TRD OR at the end of February. We all know that the factory Wrangler tires are pieces of crap. I am going to be replacing them, and thought I would go with the +1 size of 265/75-16. I know its not much, but I don't want to go too crazy right out of the...

    Re-coating/painting Leaf Springs

    What types of paint product are ya'll using to repaint/re-coat your leaf springs after theyve seen some abuse and rust and stuff. Obviously the paint needs to be flexible to withstand moving suspension, but curious what any of you are using. Options currently are POR-15 w/ top coat, vht...

    Icon leaf pack not RXT

    Looking to hear from anyone who has installed this - I've read a few posts from the other forums that mention the included center bolts are not compatible. I also have an AAL from Toytec already installed. Wondering out loud if I need to remove that and the overload spring or not. Added a...

    Alignment issues with UPC’s

    So I just installed 285/70R/17, with bilstein 5100 and OME springs. I replaced the UCA’s with SPC’s. Before I installed the new UCA’s I had zero issues with the camber, and did not rub at all! once I installed the new SPC my camber was HORRIBLE! And rubbing super bad. I took the truck to the...

    King Springs

    So I’m looking for some guidance on my front suspension, can you eliminate preloading a king shock with a taller spring? Currently have 14” 550 springs on the front, I need to make the step up to 600lb springs so can I get the 16” and not preload it or just stick with 14” 600lb? My rear set up...

    Suspension options headache

    Trying to get some feedback/thoughts/opinions/observations from the hivemind. Many have gone down the trail of lifts and such. I'm a fan of buy once, cry once. I would ideally get 2 inches of lift in the front and the rear. I don't mind the stock rake so up in the front and rear at the same is...
