So after a few months of researching on how to lift my 08 v6 2x4 stock Taco
I've come to the conclusion that 4" spindles will be my best option for the front... (by the way if you have a link with a lower price please advise an i can edit for fellow TW members )
I looked into Camburg 4" , Maxtrac 4", or Total chaos 3.5'' links below
(by the way you will more than likely need extended brake lines)
Maxtrac 511.00 - http://www.headstrongoffroad.com/max...ta-tacoma.html
Camburg 995.00 - http://www.camburg.com/store/susp-sy...e-spindle-kit/
Total Chaos 1400.00 - http://www.chaosfab.com/accessories.php?id=96504
I decided since i wont be trailing to hard & am lifting more for the aesthetic reasons (girls), Maxtrac is the way to go. Also because i am a broke college student 511.00 for a 4" lift in the front isnt bad at all...
now that leaves me with the rear i need to level out to compensate for the front 4 inches...
I explored 3 different routs i could go..add a leaf, blocks, brand new leaf pack. i decided to go with the last last option which is the best in my opinion, It is to drop a dime on a brand new pair of all pro leaf packs..
(again you will need extended break lines)
Add-a-leaf: would be a cheap way to go but since i tow they will bend over time & give me even more of a "bro/cholo lean" (isnt what i need or want!)
Blocks: is a cheap way to go but have heard through out the forms that if yo trail/rockclimb the blocks can damage your axle? not something im willing to risk even if am "mall climbing/trolling" & personally i don't like the look of blocks.
3" leaf pack - AllPro 3" - standard: 380.00 / expedition: 390.00
they have 2 kinds the standard for mall queens & expedition (heavy duty) . since i tow i will be getting the expedition set. link bellow

http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/...s-p-25810.html (@ $ 385.00)
So now that front & rear options are decided for this set up leaves me at
4" in the front & 3" in the rear... + 1' factory rake? putting me at a even lift.. i think?
To be sure you can mesure the height from the center of hub to lip of factory fender. that gives you your height difference in front & rear
Also note that i will be adding some new billstines all around when i have the cash for it. but not now (special pricing only for TW members)
(this includes all 4 new shocks with the option for rear extended shocks @ 300.00)
or if you just need the front set @ $ 173.00
For all spindle lifts they will require max 4.5 wheel back spacing
& if your planning on using stock wheels you are definitely gonna need wheel spacers since they are set at 5.5 back spacing,
spidertraxs are preferred due to them being hub centric wheel spacers. i believe you will need 1 1/4" spacers to be able to clear stock wheel with any type of spindle lift?
