3 inch Pro Comp Lift

Right know I got a 3 inch spacer and 2 inch blocks in the rear. The set up is giving my taco the "toyota lean" and I cant stand it plus I just want to put a new lift on it. I've been looking at the Pro Comp 3 inch at 4wheelparts and it looks like a good deal. My truck is a PreRunner so it's 2wd and I dont plan on doing any offroading because it's my comuter and I drive it to and from work which is about 80 miles so I can't really afford to beat my truck up so I just wanna make it look good and make sure nothing will mess up. I know it will make the ride rougher but im not worried about that. I mean lifted trucks ain't suppose to ride like cadilacs. So any reviews from the pro comp??? Or any other 3 inch lifts that are affordable???

Few people have it. Search and you will find tons of info. You get what you pay for. I would not suggest Pro Comp. Look at OME little bit more $700

seems like a solid lift to me, better than any spacer. OME is okay, but theyre not all that great either...

What is your reason for not recommending it? Do you have any PERSONAL experience or are you just jumping on the bandwagon of OME?

I have had the lift for over a year now. So far so good. Yes it rides stiffer than stock. I have ridden in a Tacoma with a spacer lift and it is not as bad as that. On the highway it rides fine. I added LR upper control arms to get my alignment dead nuts.
My only complaint was when I towed my boat, the aal that the kit came with was not enough and my ass would sag. I added a second aal from Wheelers and now when I tow there is minimum sag. I have only done some light wheeling and it held up fine.

For the money I have in this kit, Iím very happy.

For what it counts my 3" pro comp lift has given me no problem and the ride is great since I changed to Yokohama AT's from the Toyo's MT tires I had. I spend 10 hours a day offroad before my 60 minute ride home....

the large majority of people that bitch about the procomp don't have it, havn't ever had it and probably have never rode in a truck with it. that being said, i can't say one thing bad about my procomp lift. sure there are better lift kits, but for the money the procomp can't be beat imo.

the profile of your tires might be what is making the ride rough.

Im looking into this lift also. Can you run 5100's with these kits?

I do have personal experience w/ Pro Comp. My buddy has had it for over 25,000 miles. Ever since he got it the ride was terrible. Not long after he started blowing cv boots b/c procomp is too cheap to supply diff drop. To add to that he has a blown shock in the rear from towing. So yea I do not reccomend Pro Comp. OP have you looked at 5100s- good quality lift up to 2.5" and can fit 285s

Hmm, my kit came with a diff drop. Being a prerunner I didn't need it and gave it to a local guy who was about to lift his truck. I've had my kit for over 14k. So far so good. I tow my boat quite a bit along with other things and have had zero problems.
I will say this though, at least you posted with an actual experience. Sucks it wasn't a good one, but at least you didn't just regurgitate information.
The 5100 lift isn't a bad lift option either.
