Toyota Pickup Coilover Brackets

Toyota Pickup Coilover Brackets

Bolt on coilover brackets for 2wd 1979-1995 Toyota pickup trucks.These allow for the use of a coilover shock and spring, eliminating the need for torsion bars. You gain more control over height adjustability and dampening while significantly improving your ride quality.


These brackets work with QA1 shock bodies. To determine which shocks are going to work for your truck, measure your shocks at your current ride height and go from there. As a rule of thumb, if they call for an 8" spring, use a 7" so it clears the sway bars. For 9" use an 8" spring and so on.


You will have to run an upper control arm of some sort, we recommend our adjustable control arms. A tubular arm will also work as long as it's close to factory geometry (Not SAE arms) and allows enough room for a shock body and spring.Production brackets will go out raw since they can also be welded to the frame, which is recommended for competition or heavy duty use. Brackets will also come with all the grade 8 hardware necessary to complete installation.


Additional parts needed for QA1 install:

2 - QA1 shock bodies (14" extended (dd401) for drop spindles or 12.75" extended (dd303) for factory spindles)

2 - 2.5" id 6" springs of your choosing (powder coated preferably)

2 - QA1 BAR305K 3" lower tbar kits (79-83)

2 - QA1 BAR355K 3.5" lower t-bar kits (84-95)

Modifications: There is some trimming and cutting involved to install these brackets. The tip (approx 1/4") of the frame horn where the bump stop meets the frame (See pic with frame area circled in red). You will also need to remove the small threaded nubs on the lower control arms where the factory shock bolts in. Once these are removed the holes can be drilled to 3/8" to accept the lower tbar kit. Stock sway bars usually clear fine, aftermarket sway bars usually need the sleeves trimmed so they can be shortened.


Installation: It's super straight forward, drop the torsion bars out and remove the shocks. The old upper control arms come out and it's time to make the cuts and drill the lower control ar
