Aftermarket 4wd suspension is extremely complex. Determining the right solution for your vehicle and your requirements demands special attention to many factors. Unlike numerous aftermarket suspension systems, which are only available in a single configuration targeting lift height, Old Man Emu offers a range of tuned and matched integrated suspension systems to ensure the right suspension is available to suit how the vehicle is outfitted and the conditions it will encounter. Initial evaluation of the new 2016 Tacoma was that the vehicle provided a balanced, compliant ride that gave the OME engineers a good platform for developing a range of suspension solutions. Consideration was given to the front geometry to maximize the lift while maintaining optimal levels of droop, down travel and proper alignment.

1.0 Cannot get things straight!!!

I preferred this kit, first time it came in, it was missing the leaf springs. After two days of calls and emails they sent the “right” springs. Unfortunately for me, they managed to get it wrong again and sent the medium load instead of heavy. So now I’m left with the choice, do I return the whole thing back to my closest store and order somewhere else, do I spend two more days calling and paying to return these for the right one, or do I just “settle” and put the medium loads on, knowing they’re not going to be what I need for this truck application.

5.0 Heavy kit

I recently put the heavy kit on my 16 Trd Tacoma. Love it. It rides like a truck should handles all road conditions excellent. I have a rack and smutty billy tent on the back and load it regularly with coolers and gear to go fishing and hunting. No sagging or bottoming out at all. I put around 900 lbs in the bed and it rides real nice still.
