Readylift 5lug Wheel/Tires help??

2006 Tacoma SR5 5lug Base Access Cab (owned).

Readylift already installed.

Just added 285/65/R18 Nitto Terra Grappler

It rides a little rough, I have disk brakes on the front, and drums on the rear. I am planning to replace the pads VERY soon. Anyone recommend any further mods to get better braking?

Also, I want to know what I can do to get another inch or two in height? Shock options maybe?

Thanks for the help!

As a 5 lug, your only option for more hight on top of your ready lift is a body lift.

what they said^

unfortunately there are many options for lifting our trucks. here is a thread about most of the option for 2nd gen 5 luggers. i dont think there are any LT trucks 2nd gen 5 lug in there but that is an option but seeing that your in florida its not a very reasonable option since you wouldnt use it unless you wanted to drop all the dough just for the look...

EDIT: oh and welcome to TW!

You can add spindles on top of your spacer for more lift instead of BL...

Ok... I found some shocks called "Bilstein 5100 Adjustable Shocks" for Tacomas. But I already have Readylift so will they still work?

Any suggestions?

No they won't work for 5-lugs...only 6 lugs.

As I noted above, a body lift is your only option.
