**Intro sequence by @mbarek_abdel***

$700 suspension upgrade vs. $3200 off-road suspension upgrade
Does more expensive mean more better? Let’s find out!

We bought two identical Toyota Tacomas, and we’re modifying them to be fun, daily drivers that you can take literally anywhere, except the ocean.

One Taco gets expensive parts, and one gets cheap parts. Then we test them, to see which components are worth spending your hard-earned money on.

Upgrading your suspension with new, longer travel springs and shocks can improve your truck’s ground clearance, ride quality, and ability to keep all 4 tires in touch with the ground while driving over uneven terrain.
They also let you run bigger, sicker wheels and tires.

Today, Hi Truck is getting….
An ICON Stage 4 Suspension System including front coilovers and rear shocks --both with external reservoirs-- a pair of add-a-leafs, and upper control arms all for $3200.

And Low Truck is getting a Bilstein 3” lift kit which comes with springs, shocks, and an add-a-leaf kit.
Our suspension upgrade costs $700-- less than a fourth the cost of Hi Team’s kit.

LOL the "do not do at home", I remember my buddy teaching me this right way when we did my struts... then proceeds to do it. Also, never body lift and do a lift kit! Another buddy learned the hard way of that (they seemed to clash with each other stressing out the truck's suspension or something more)

A body lift is not just for aesthetics.....the purpose of a body lift is actually to give you more clearance between the wheel and wheel arch so you can fit bigger tires without any scrubbing...come on guys.

Crawling over obstacles isn’t going to show the difference between these shock setups. The icons will outshine the bilsteins anyday with higher speed bumps and washboard roads.

Man those are totally different suspension kits though, Icon will definitely win but ultimately you buy for what you’re doing.
Bilsteins are a good product they may cost less but are very good quality

Installs different kits that give equal lift and tests them where lift is the most important factor...... How about off road ride quality at speeds faster than a crawl which is where the money difference actually lies.

The Icon set up shines at high speed off-road. The UCA’s make a huge difference, but Low truck can add a set for less than $200 bucks.

You guys should make cool Hi-Lo merchandise where it is both of the trucks facing each other in a 2d form kind of like one of the shirts no one has worn where it has Paul Walker's Nissan skyline on it and a similar art style to that could have both the trucks once they're fully modified have them facing each other and have high and low other above or below the trucks I don't know if you've done that yet but also be a cool idea well actually you guys haven't yet cuz you haven't finished with the trucks as of making this comment but I hope someone sees this even though this was posted a video from 4 weeks ago as of again making this comment

7:49 True, a body lift doesn't give you anymore suspension travel or ground clearance for the frame. However, a body lift does give the body more ground clearance so it is less likely to get hung up on obstacles. Body lifts also allow for larger tires and we all know the benefits of larger tires.

As a German who always uses Febi Bilstein for his E30 and his E46: Use it. It works, it’s the cheapest „high quality“ Part Manufacturer. At least here in Germany.
