5 Lug 2 wheel drive Lift...Ideal ideas

Looking to Lift my 2wd 99 Tacoma I have an idea......

FRONT:
Changing the Stock Spring and Shock with The Strut set-up and putting the spacer in

REAR:
Simple Blocks

Ideas On This

I'm not looking to go mudding just want a the truck to set high

I have 17's and was thinking 31x10.50's on them
I just haven't found info on a CHEAP LIFT not looking to drop $400 buck into a $1000 truck thats all it cost me and I know there wroth more LIFTED:P and look damn good !!!

buy yourself some v6 coils daystar coil spacers and some lift spindles. too much work to try to convert it to coilovers or struts

How much lift from just the coils? and would I have to change anything but just the coils?....b/c even just sitting as high as a SR5 prerunner or stock 4x4 would be fine.

You'll get 3 inches with the lift spindles and an additional 1.5 inches with the Daystar coil spacers....that should get you the amount of height you want and I agree with joel....that's a lot of money to convert to coilovers

v6 coils are supposed to give another inch but you might need ucas so stick to the spindles and spacers if your on a budget. wont be as tall as a prerunner but definitely wont be low and fyi blocks for the rear will lower it. get yourself an aal or some shackles

Thx Guys, I just wish they would have stuck to one set-up for the front, there is almost no info on coils and I'm not a fan of taking them out.

I'm on a big budget now but with tax time maybe just lift spindles really easy to replace and i never did the bearings or tie rods and i like to replace everything...while its apart.

Thx guys its just with 90K on this truck and how cheap I got it, I rather not make it just another mini with a crappy ride, Jon Street

P.S. what tire do you think i can run after the spindles I got 275 / 75's R15 B4 would like to keep the 17's on it with a nice lower pro AT

thx Backspacing dooh i had some jeep/ranger 15x8 but these aren't all that off-set ? dont think 31x10.50 will work...........

but i am running 245 45 17's and i think its close but for now i think tires are the least of my worries when the spindles are $400 maybe i can find some used one's?

Question

Not sure if you guys are still there but if so....

Bought some 2001 SR5 extd. cab springs for the front you think these will give me a lift up front ? The SR5 's seem to sit much higher?
