I really like all that clearance you got with the spindles. Looks awesome. I went through your list of parts and you got everything right in my opinion. All excellent parts without getting too crazy. I used 5100's and Eibachs with my bracket lift and it all works well together. I put spindles on my Frontier and they really are the way to go with PreRunners.

- No probs with the new brake lines. Camburg sent me a set when I ordered my spindles and I also purchased a set for the rear from All-Pro...both stainless braided. Make sure you use a flare wrench so as not to strip them

- The spindles were good to go...I just had to grind a really small section off of the welds so the caliper would fit flush on the new spindles. It only took about a minute using a Dremel with a small grinding wheel

All in all this is what I purchased:
- Spindles w/swaybar provision & front ext brake lines from Camburg
- All-Pro expo leafs, U-bolt flip kit, & ext rear brake lines from All-Pro
- Adjustable 5100s for the front from DownSouth Motorsports
- 5125s for the rear(11 inch travel) from Allshocks.com
- Loop to stem adapters for rear from anyoffroadparts.com
- 3 degree shims for rear & 1/4 inch top plate spacer for driver's side Taco lean from Toytec
- KMC Enduro 16x8 from Amazon
- 285/75/16 General Grabber AT2 from TireRack.com

Hey man thanks so much for this. You should be flattered I am going to steal your lift setup!

Just gotta save up and piece it together. I'll probably get the spindles first then the aal, then shocks.

thanks again man I really appreciate it!

No problem...you'll enjoy the Camburg/All-Pro setup - it's bad ass and rides great. Good luck with your lift!

It was right around $2K I believe...all of the little crap adds up (shims, adapters, flip kit). Also, shipping for the leafs was not cheap

What is the "taco lean"? Is the drivers side lower than the passenger? I have not noticed this before...

cost of build

Truck Looks great, what was the total cost of the total lift only??? Thanks





The day I brought her home:


I put the following on my truck (2 days of install time):
- Camburg spindles w/swaybar provision
- 5100's up front set at .85
- All Pro expo leafs
- 5125's in the rear w/loop to stem adapters
- Extended brake lines both front and rear
- Black 16x8 KMC Enduro wheels
- General Grabber AT2 - 285/75/16

I had never done this before so I took my time to make sure I didn't miss anything. I will say this - ideally you need 2 or more people for a project like this. Installing the expo springs by myself was a huge pain in the ass so I had to get creative and use storage boxes to hold one end of the spring up while installing the other end. Lot's of cussing and I think I pulled a groin muscle installing the rear end. Spindles took just a tad bit of grinding near the weld where the calipers fit on. Brake lines in the rear are a major pain unless you have Inspector Gadget arms and baby hands.

Here she is after I brought her home from the wheel/tire install and the alignment







Things I still need to do:
- Re-install Tacoma badges (painted them black)
- Paint the rusty front hubs black (or may cut my center caps and shove them in, they are waaay too long)
- Trim my antenna because I almost broke it off pulling into my garage[/QUOTE]

Yeah I decided some time ago that the badges were staying off - to be honest, I can't even remember where I put them

Stock Tacoma height + ~ 4.5 inch lift + ~ 1.5 inch radius diff for bigger tires. To be honest man I don't know. It fits in my garage just fine and I just stayed in a hotel this past week and it fit in the parking garage. I wondered if I was going to clear the "clearance" sign but I did
