Yuciapa,
Hey whats happening?
I am considering running one of the LT kits for a taco from Camburg or TC.
I have a couple of questions about the strength of the front axle. I have broken the CV joint while playing around and have read this to be a weak link in the front end.

Does the Tundra axle provide extra strength over the taco axle?

Can you run the FOA SHOCKS with either of these LT kits?

I assume you have a 96-04 Tacoma. The Tundra axle assemblies replace the stock Tacoma tri-pod joint with a stronger CV joint. The axles shafts themselves are also stronger. With proper shock setup, bumpstops and limit straps you shouldnt have a problem with them. Just dont jump truck truck in 4wd with the gas pinned.

We use a specific Sway-A-Way, FOX or King shock for our L/T kit. Typically their off the shelf shocks are too long and wont allow for all the compression travel. We also have specific valved shocks as well for our kit. Since we're able to get more wheel travel than some of the other kits out there, running the specific shock = more wheel travel ... which is a good thing.

Any other questions let us know.
