Question & Answers

10 Answered questions

Q: Is there an option to have front coil springs assembled onto struts? Answer this question

A: None that I know of. A $25 spring compressor from Harbor Freight will do the job with no problem!

Answered by TacoGuy99 from Traverse City, MI on 05/12/2021

A: Sorry, we do not provide an option to have the front struts pre-assembled with the coil springs.

Q: Do you need to buy new control arms? The icon lift kit gives you new control arms. How come this product does not? Answer this question

A: Not for this kit. It’s a suspension upgrade that increases the lift, but it does not increase travel requiring new UCAs.

Answered by Simplehuman from Columbus, OH on 12/03/2020

A: ARB doesn't provide control arms with this 3 inch lift kit and are sold separately. ARB Upper Control Arms (Part Number: UCA0005)

Answered by Mario from Compton, CA on 12/02/2020

Q: Does this level the truck? Answer this question

A: Yes it levels the truck plus adds 1". This is a complete kit, nothing else is required. This will provide great on and off road ride and handling.

Answered by Dave from 4WP HQ on 09/21/2021

Q: Says will not fit my 2021 tacoma sr5? is that true? Answer this question

A: Yes. There is no mechanical difference in the suspension from 2005 - 2021. Keep in mind, if you do lift your truck 3" or more, you should also upgrade your UCAs.

Answered by Simplehuman from Columbus, OH on 08/29/2021

Q: If I pre order now, when would I get it? Answer this question

A: It looks like we are expecting some in the end of June. Keep in mind these are estimated dates from ARB. You might want to place your order to get your place in line to receive as they come in.
