    Hey guys, just wanna vouch for Matt (mwray8909 on T4Rorg) and his installation work on my 4Runner. He squeezed me into his schedule to install a set of Pro takeoffs (shocks/coils on all four corners) on my KDSS Trail. He's extremely thorough and put me at ease, taking the time to show me what he looks for during his installs. We completed the work in his driveway in less than 5 hours- when I say we, I mean I handed him tools and lent a hand here and there. He does excellent work at a fair price. On a side note, the Pro setup rides nicely. Haven't had a chance to stretch it out yet but will update my thread when I do.

    He's just above Ventura, CA in Casitas Springs, though he will be moving soon. Here's his number- 618.409.2505

    Thanks again Matt!

    Is he comfortable with his number being posted online? Personally, I’d lose my mind if someone posted mine.

    Yes, he asked me to. I don't think he has an account on this forum yet, and he'd like to pick up repeat business.

    Rides smooth. I have E-load tires and bumps felt very squared-off and jolty with the stock suspension. This rounds off roughness nicely. I found out later that I may have different rear springs (all 4Runners, including the Pro, share the same stock rear springs). These may be superflex coils from Toytec as they are definitely a little higher than stock.

    Subtle lift and performance gain for cheap. No need to swap UCA's or worry about the driveline angles.

    I bought the takeoffs from another member (he was swapping to an icon setup) and then brought them over to Matt for install.
