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 are designed for QA1 shock bodies. The QA1 DD401 with an 8" spring will give you 0-2" of drop with stock spindles. The QA1 DD303 with a 7" spring will give you 3-4" drop on stock spindles. I recommend Eibach 2.5" id springs, anything between 550lb and 750lbs will work depending on preference.


You will have to run an upper control arm of some sort, we recommend Stabfab adjustable control arms. A tubular arm will also work as long as it's close to factory geometry 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. All grade 8 hardware necessary to complete installation included.


Additional parts needed for QA1 install:

2 - QA1 shock bodies

2 - Eibach coilover Springs (Eibach part numbers follow a sequence; length, id, lbs. So, EIB-0800.250.0550 would be an 8" spring, 2.5"id and 550lbs. EIB-0700.250.0750 would be a 7" spring, 2,5"id and 750lbs, etc.)

2 - QA1 BAR305K 3" lower t-bar 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 t-bar 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 arms to 3/8 for the t-bars. Install the new upper control arms loosely while you twist the brackets in to position. Install the short bolt and washer going UP through the frame horn with the lock washer and nut on top. Install the original control arms bolts with thread locker, set your coilovers in with the t-bars on top of the control arms and tighten everything up. Get a good alignment and re-torque everything after 500 miles.


Disclaimer: These kits are designed for off-road competition use. Professional installation is required!
