What’s up dudes (and Luanna). Curious what spring rates everyones running on their full size A-armed trucks. For the past 4-5 years i have ran on a 8” shock up front so dual spring rates never came to mind.

Back ground alittle on what the truck will have.

2006 Tundra. Double Cab. Installing a race kit.
2.5 10” Coilovers and 3.0 10” bypasses
Bumped off upper arm.
Will run on 35” tall tires until their bald then going to 37”s.

This truck has no intentions of being a race truck. Just a to the desert or Glamis and back home kind of truck. What do you guys think?

What spring is on it now? Even with a 10" shock, going duals might not be advisable. With the rates you will need coil b8nd becomes a real issue. Better off with an 18" spring and a tender.

Im still on my old kit with 8” shocks. Currently on a 18”700. The 10” shocks are what we’re installing on the new kit.

For my 2.5x10" SAW coilovers on the Solo XLT kit I believe I have 16 or 18" long, 600# springs.

I'm running 18"-600 lb coils, no tenders with my TC kit. 10" Foxes shortened to 8" travel (TC special) with 4" bumps off the lowers. The truck works well as it sits. When I build a race kit I'll likely step up to 700 lb coils. I ran 700 lb coils with tenders on 10" Foxes on my C1500 and it was perfect in the dirt.
