Need 99 Tacoma help

So my mechanic says that the 99 trd tacoma has a unibody suspension.

However I was looking into buying a toytec lift.

I messaged the company and told them of the swaying problem

They replyed with a message telling me that no tacoma has a unibody

Suspension. And there lifts wouldn't effect my vechical.

I just want a sure answer as to what is going on.

If any one has had the same problem let me know

all tacomas have frames, not a unibody design. the only vehicle i can think of that poeple lift and are unibody are cherokees.

So what is your problem? You say your truck is swaying? I think you may need new shocks and probably need to replace the sway bar bushings as well. BTW, your mechanic is an ass for telling you your truck is a unibody.
