Note- Early in 2008, Donahoe Racing closed its doors. The employees, most notably Dylan Evans (previously at Swayaway) and Mike Crosby, formed Icon Vehicle Dynamics and will continue to provide quality products under the IVD name, as well as (last I heard) continue to honor the warranty on Donahoe Racing products. -D67
I now had my Donahoe Coilovers for about two weeks and wanted to leave some feedback. First of all, the Donahoe's dramatically improved the handling of the Tundra. When I installed the Donahoe's, I wanted to see if there would be a significant difference compared to my stock TRD suspension. I must say that I was blown away with the difference. On turns that my truck used to lean alot, it didn't do it anymore. Also when braking, nose diving was almost eliminated. The on-road handling was greatly improve with the Donahoe's.
This past weekend was the first time that I went offroading since I put on the Donahoe's. I must say that the Donahoe's are equally impressive off-road as they were with the on-road performance. I drove over dirt, ditches, rocks and sand. The Donahoe's absorb alot of the bumps from the rocks in the dirt trails. In areas that I usually have to drive slow and cautious, I just breezed through. I couldn't believe the difference a coiliover could make. Even my friend with his Tacoma couldn't keep up with me at times. He was quite impressed with the difference in my truck.
I really am stoked with my Donahoe Coilovers! I won't say that Donahoe's are better tham SAW's, Kings, TeamWest etc... because I never tried the other coilovers. I just think that Donahoe Racing is now giving the Tundra owner another option for a quality Coilover. I read somewhere that a quality coilover is like night and day compared to a stock set up and now I can say that I agree!
