fabtech conversion to long travel

I have a 99 tacoma with a 6" fabtech lift and am wanting to convert to long travel suspension. Would I be able to buy a kit that works with my current suspension?

no, Long travel is a totally different way to run suspension. You will have to loose your drop bracket lift.

doubtful unless you want it to be even higher and one couldn't guarantee it would work or be reliable if it did. your best bet is to lose the drop bracket lift. Of course the piece of the front crossmember that was cut out will need to be welded back in. Then the whole new LT kit installed.

Ok so you are able to mount a TC Long Travel Kit to your truck with the 6" on but.... Its one of the dumbest ideas out there. I have a TC kit and my truck leans like crazy around turns and with a 6" lift you are just asking to roll over. Long travel trucks are low 3" of lift tops because your center of gravity is lower and better for high speeds. also normally those 6" kits aren't really meant to take that kind of beating. You best bet is to take of the 6" and replace the cross member then add the Long Travel kit. or just keep the 6".
