if you wanna go as cheap as possible, you could try a spacer/leveling kit. Its just a metal spacer that you put between the top of your shock/coil assembly up front. for the rear, you can either score some blocks or add a leafs. check out toyteclifts.com. there's also probably some "pro comp" or "fabtech" spacer and add a leaf kits on ebay as well... I don't recommend it though, better to just be patient and do it right the first time (new shocks/coils or a complete coilover assembly in the front and preferably new leaf springs in the rear). you'll also find nicer lift kits on the Toytec site as well. All pro also sells some good stuff as well. Later on you can add nice stuff like upper control arms and what not. you can also go long travel, but I don't know anything about long travel, might wanna search on that before starting a new thread though... Just tryin to bust your balls a little

Hm... Not to my knowledge. Perhaps fabtechmotorsports.com. You'll have to buy from a separate dealer, but check out their products. Pretty sure they have 5lug lifts

Check out the Fat Bob's kit for spacers, it's pretty common around here. I have Fabtech lift spindles in mine to keep stock suspension characteristics (spindles essentially mount the wheel down lower to lift the truck. The UCAs and LCAs and the spring/shock stay in the exact same spot)

For the rear, you are limited to an AAL. Blocks will lower you because 5 lugs are spring under rear axles. Shackles will lower you too because 2nd gens have stupid flipped shackle mounts.

Check out the fat bobs lift for 5 lug. It's cheap and will do the trick til u figure which route to go. I installed mine a while ago and it's done the truck for me. I run mine with 265/75r16 and will b switching to 285s when these tires or gone.

did the fat bobs lift for your 5 lug have an aal in the rear? if so, did it lift it the height it said it would?
