Taters are old 3" all-pros that do pretty well. We did remove a spring in the front and two in the back

3" trail-gear springs

I ran 3" trail gear springs on the rear of my toyota based buggy and i liked them. Good flex and did not bend. If i can find some pics I will post them.

I once used the 3" All Poops and liked those for strictly crawling. I would think the TG 3" would be similar. Not enough up travel for anything fast paced. I have had best luck with the TG 5" springs with the appropriate leafs removed. I like the fact that I can put the leafs back in and go fast. Wes (507) is running some 3" springs and he goes fast regularly so WTF do I know?
