Granite Dells in Prescott, Arizona

Sway-A-Way has offered a bolt-on 2.0" coilover shock for years, and I have used one of their earliest versions with great success for many years and a lot of hard miles. In 2005 they made their 2.5" Series available for the Toyota Tacoma, and I decided it was time to upgrade. The 2.5" Series coilover offers the same bolt-on convenience of the 2.0", but the larger diameter allows for larger internals and 50% more oil capacity. The RaceRunner coilovers (2.0" and 2.5") provide much better handling and off-road capability than the stock components. In addition to the ability to withstand more abuse, they also provide an adjustable lift in ride height (a true suspension lift). I am currently running the 2.5" units adjusted to approximately  2 1/2" to 2 3/4" higher than stock. To find out more details on these shocks, visit the RaceRunner website.

There is quite a lot of information and products available for the Toyota Tacoma IFS (Independent Front Suspension). What you will find here is just a little bit of information that I have compiled that relates to what I have used with the BAJATACO.COM expedition vehicle. 

There are many other products to choose from these days, and I have included some information and links in the "Photos, notes and links" section below. For anyone who already has the Sway-A-Way units, or might be considering them, I have some other articles outlining how to install them on your Tacoma truck as well as rebuild them for maintenance purposes.
