    I'm planning on doing a SAS in my 2k Tacoma 4x4 here within the next few months or so and I was wondering if anyone on this board had any information/tips/guides as to how to go about this.

    I've been in contact with a few members of TTORA that have their straight axle tacos and have done write ups on them and the such but I'm craving more information. I don't want to go into this without as much knowledge about a straight axle swap in my truck as humanly possible.

    Anything would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Swapping out the independant suspension for a solid axle because independant sucks badly offroad since it has no travel.

    Look here and it shows a few pic comparisons.
