Since MaxTrac Suspension is now a supporting vendor here I'm feeling out how many people would be interested in their products. From the little information available on the Tacoma forums there has been promising words about the quality and durability of the spindles.

MaxTrac doesn't sell to the public but they are located a few miles from my work Sean from MaxTrac reccommended a shop they deal closely with that is also right next to them. I'm going to be calling there tomorrow for more information.

refer to this post for their products:

I'm not sure if we could mix/match products in the group buy, but while I get more information, just post what product you would want (3.5" spindles alone, 3.5" complete kit, or 6" complete kit) I will update the original post as more info becomes available.

The little we've been able to find on pricing is saying
3.5 spindles - $625
6" lift - $975

Also, what is the $350 getting you, if you go from the 3.5" lift to the 6" lift?

You can build that much more lift on your own for the same price, that's why I'm curious what all you are getting for the extra $350?

You can throw a 2.5" spacer up front for about $50, 3" blocks in back for less than $100, and a new set of shocks for about $200.
Exactly!
The 6" kit adds their 2.5" front spacer (just like a level), 4" rear blocks w/ all hardware. Their own shocks (that's kinda scary!) carrier barring drop and brake like drop.

I agree completely what you're saying, that's why I'm interested in pricing for both.
My plan before seeing this was to get supreme suspension 3/1 level. Cst spindles, and coaches +3 shackles (since his shackles come with the drop brackets) but still not sure what rear shocks I want to go with.

I'm still leaning doing the rest of the lift on my own and just getting maxtrac's spindles. 1) a 4" block is just scary. 2) coaches shackles. 3) coaches shackles and 4) coaches shackles :yesnod:

IMO, it's best to piece your kit together to get what you want, which is why I chose not to go with a "lift in a box" as I call it (procomp, bds, etc.).

It might cost you a couple dollars extra, but in the end, you have a better setup.

I'm not saying that I have the best possible suspension setup, but it's a lot better than any "lift in a box" would have given me...and I paid about the same or less, for more better :D
:Yesnod: I still am interested in pricing of the full 6"... I'm on a tight budget, and Uncle Sam isn't helping me out this tax season. Otherwise I'd just drop the $ on ome + cst w/ adjustable uca's in the front with new leafs, coaches shackles and air bags in the rear.

Plus, I'm impatient when it comes to modding my truck... VERY impatient. Lol!

I'm definitely interested. I pick up my truck in two weeks. I am pretty set on the ome setup for sure, but if after measuring I think I can still lift it more while fitting where I need to I will be adding spindles. So I'd be in pending that.

I'd be in for the 6" Lift Kit, I think. Bad Dad makes a good point on the pricing for peicing together a kit, so maybe just spindles... I guess it depends on what the shop guy says about group pricing.

I spoke to Jacob over at Suspension Specialists and he said that he is willing to set up a group buy. He said to give him a call so that you can get it all set up with him. He will give you the details on the quantity needed and pricing. Their phone number is 714-966-2365. He is the same guy who did the group buy for the Tacoma spindles on Tacoma World and it worked out great for everyone!

how many people do we need for this, or is it just a forum discount?

So are you going to do the rest of the leg work to get this going? It's only going to cause problems with two of us calling the same guy trying to coordinate the same thing.

I have no problem stepping down passing the reins to you if that's the case. Less headache for me. I was just trying to get things going since all these shops are local to me.
