MODIFY THE SUSPENSION
ON YOUR TOYOTA?
basic theory in suspension design is to isolate the
cargo and passenger areas of the vehicle from the
surface when traveling. Most people re-work their
suspension systems to meet their specialized needs
and requirements. The most common reasons for suspension
upgrades are increased travel, higher performance,
greater load carrying capacity, better off-road ride
and handling, and finally, increased fender clearance
for oversize tires. Northwest Off-Road Specialties
has been involved in the design of Toyota 4 wheel
drive suspension systems since 1978. Our springs
have been designed and engineered to meet our rigid
standards of performance and quality which allow
us to offer a limited lifetime warranty.

ASKED SUSPENSION QUESTIONS
BY OUR CUSTOMERS
FRONT LIFT SPRINGS: Standard
or Heavy duty?
NWOR sells the largest selection of Toyota springs available. For the
majority of our customers, our standard spring
series offer both longevity plus an excellent ride on and off road.
Our heavy duty front springs have been engineered to carry the additional
weight loads of heavy winch bumpers and V8 engine conversions with
a minor increase in firmness.
2) REAR SPRINGS: Are
NWOR manufactures 24 different heavy duty complete
replacement spring sets that feature the latest in spring technology as
shown. Beware! Some Toyota suppliers furnish only the upper
three leaves in their rear springs, requiring
the customer to install his used bottom leaves to complete the
3) COIL SPRINGS: Why
Progressive or variable rate coil springs are more expensive to manufacture.
Progressive rate coils provide an excellent ride
whether loaded or unloaded, plus the much needed increased load
capacity. Constant rate coils produce a harsh ride without a load and
provide an acceptable ride when heavily loaded.
do they do?
Add-A-Leafs are an inexpensive way to lift 1-1/2 to 2".
The Add-A-Leaf's increased spring rate causes a much stiffer ride than
a complete engineered new lifted rear spring assembly.
MAXIMUM ARTICULATION LEAF SPRINGS: What
do they do? They are a non-load carrying spring. How well each axle or wheel will travel during extreme off road conditions
depends on spring flex or articulation. Aftermarket manufactured maximum
articulating springs are designed primarily for off road use, work
great, but the negative effect is that your truck sacrifices
on highway handling. All NWOR springs are engineered
within SFI specifications to offer the correct
balance of off-road articulation and safe on-road handling and stability.
IFS AXLE CONVERSIONS? Buyer
The Internet has lots of small 4x4 repair shops presenting themselves
as bonafide manufacturers of frame components, steering arms and components,
etc. NWOR and most all major suspension companies sell
and manufacture products that conform to ISO 9002 specifications. This
insures proper design, engineering, testing and
strict quality control, with adequate product liability insurance to
protect you, the customer. Your safety is a primary issue, and
the primary reason the above mentioned products are not available from
reputable sources! We hear many experiences from customers
with broken frames caused by welding problems rendering the truck useless
to drive or sell.
