Important Vehicle Specific Notes and Recommendations

Toyota Tacoma Gen. 2 and 3 Trucks are extremely popular and Filthy Motorsports works with customers every day doing everything from simple King shock replacements (like this kit), to full race-spec long travel kits, and many solid axle swaps. These trucks are an excellent platform, but there are a few very important tips that we have to keep in mind to build them well:

1. The rear shock mounts are very close together on these trucks so King has to use every trick in their book to make a set of 2.5 smoothies fit. As a result, the King OEM rear shocks will only work up to 1.5" of rear lift (blocks, overload springs, shackles, and/or leaf springs) and will limit overall travel slightly. For long-travel leaf springs, you will need a rear shock relocation kit to fit King shocks and maximize rear suspension travel.

2. The front suspension geometry is very tight with about 8" of wheel travel leveraged to about 4" of movement on the coilover. For the best performance, the coilovers should be set at mid-shaft or about 2" over stock height. For added movement, an aftermarket upper control arm (UCA) can be used to allow for an extra 3/4" of down travel when the coilovers are built with the extended travel option.

3. DO NOT use coilover pre-load to lift the vehicle over 2.5". The factory geometry works best at about 2" over stock and lifting it more than that puts the CV shafts, steering linkages, tie rod ends, and control arms at steeper angles which reduces ride quality significantly and causes those components to wear out faster. If you want more than 2.5" of lift AND excellent performance, you will need an aftermarket lift kit that drops the lower control arm and front differential.

Complete Suspension Upgrade Recommendations

Improving the performance and handling of a Gen. 2 and 3 Toyota Tacoma can be done in many ways on many different budgets, however, it's always best to not spend your hard earned money twice to get your desired results. With that in mind, Filthy Motorsports recommends choosing one of the following options:

1. Best Performance For a Work Truck:
If you use your Tacoma as a work truck and need to retain the factory load capacity, we recommend replacing the front struts with these King OEM coilovers and replacing the rear shocks with these King OEM 2.5 rear shocks. Filthy Motorsports will select the proper front coilover springs and shock valving for you to significantly improve the overall ride and handling of the truck and prevent the factory rear leaf springs from unloading.

2. Best Off-Road Performance on a Budget:
For those that want to maximize the off-road performance and handling of their Tacoma while keeping to a reasonable budget, we recommend this complete King OEM kit front and back, with SPC upper control arms. In this package, Filthy Motorsports will have the front coilovers built with extended travel for up to 3/4" of extra front down travel up front, and the SPC UCAs will allow you to maximize your tire size and adjust caster and camber for a perfect alignment. The rear shocks will work great with the factory rear leafs and can accommodate up to 1.5" of lift.

3. Best Ride Quality on a Budget:
If your goal is to get the best overall ride quality on and off-road, we recommend King OEM coilovers up front with SPC upper control arms paired with Deaver rear leaf springs and King Rear shocks. The coilovers would be built with extended travel for up to 3/4" of extra front down travel up front, and the SPC UCAs will allow for proper alignment. For additional fine tuning, consider adding the compression adjusters.

4. Best Overall Off-Road Performance:
The biggest limiting factor to improving ride quality on a Gen 2 and Gen 3 Tacoma are the factory rear leaf springs and rear shock mounts. Because heavy leaf springs have a tendency to unload and transfer weight to the front of the vehicle, changing to a softer, less progressive leaf pack will significantly improve ride quality and allow more overall travel. To maximize suspension travel and achieve the ultimate in ride quality and performance out of your Tacoma, Filthy Motorsports recommends the following package:
  • Front King OEM Coilovers with Compression Adjusters and Extended Travel.
  • Camburg or SPC Aftermarket Upper Control Arms (UCAs).
  • Rear Deaver Leaf Springs (Custom tuned for your application.)
  • Total Chaos Rear Shock Relocation Kit.
  • King 2.5" x 10 Smoothie or Double Bypass Rear Shocks.
  • Spidertrax 1.25" Rear Wheel Spacers (Required).
  • Front and Rear Hydraulic Bump Stop Kits.
5. Long Travel Off-Road Racing:
If your driving style or needs require running down logging roads, forest roads or through the desert at speeds over 60mph for extended periods of time, Filthy Motorsports recommends looking into a full race-spec long travel suspension system with coilovers, bypasses and hydraulic bump stops. See our Baja Kits Tacoma Long Travel Kit.

Remember, all orders are treated as custom orders and we will review the spring rates, valving, and configuration to make sure they not only fit the vehicle, but also match your expectations and goals.

Free Spring Exchange Program: All King OEM Coilover Kits are covered by the Filthy Motorsports Free Spring Exchange Program. While we always do our best to select the proper spring for your vehicle, if the ones we send you settle the vehicle too high or too low, let us know and we'll swap them out for you.

5 of 5 Good day to you!!! December 28, 2021
Reviewer: Luis from Perris, CA  
I am happy to inform you that I have installed the king coilovers on my Tacoma and the Camburg UCAs. I love the how the truck performs on the road and offroad.  The truck has better ride manners now with the extra weight. Thank you.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Canada  
I just picked my truck up Friday with the King OEM kit installed. It rides great on the highway, but I haven’t had the chance to get it off road yet. Ben did a great job getting them set up the way I wanted it. I paired them with some Icon RXT leafs springs and SPC UCAs.
