Angry 2nd Generation Tacoma 4WD 4" Suspension

Okay,

Has anyone released a true 4" suspension lift for the 2nd gen. tacoma? I can't find one anywhere. I don't want to do a body lift or a 6" susp. lift. I also don't want spacers that change my CV axle angles. Any help would be much appreciated. Otherwise, it looks like I will have to make my own.

Thanks in advance

Andrew

Have not seen any 4". If you are set on a 4 you might have to go with a 3" lift and then a little body.

Or 3" with a taller top spacer and block in the rear? Something along those lines.

Like was said, to get to 4 inches, would require a 3" AAL rear with a 1" block, In the front, maybe billy 5100" set at 2.5" with a toytec leveling spacer which I believe is 1.5" (though I am not really sure if this can be done together)

That said, a diff drop is reccomended by Toyota as well as the lift companies if you lift over 2 inches, so regardless, you are going to need a front diff drop, or to be prepared to be replacing CV joints on a regular basis.

Regards,

you CANNOT use spacers with the 5100's on top notch.
search "allied spindles" for a 4" lift.

The spindles only work for 2WD vehicles.

I think the allied spindles are the only option at getting 4" like rick said. On the 4x4 models wouldn't going above 3" be damaging for the joints and what not. Unless some company is planning on running some 4" drop bracket kit, there prob won't be many options aside from body lift.

This company claims 4" of lift, but they are running fox coilovers and some UCA's. Anad at almost $4000 it seems like a waste of money too. http://pure-performance.biz/

this is exactly the one i was gonna mention. they even have a link/coilover kit to replace the rear leafs. pretty awesome if you ask me- no more axle wrap and an awesome ride i'd expect. if their kit is run with glassworks fenders, then 35's will even fit!
they actually call their truck line "pure performance" http://www.pure-performance.biz/

I linked that 3 posts ago lol. But yeah, it is on the expensive side, and i don't know if i would trust their four link. Looks iffy. I would rather spend the 5G's on long travel or save money and buy the Fox's and some Deavers seperate. Save quite a few dollars.
