Fastenal will only supply in small amounts. You will be better off ordering in person. Fastenal tends to screw up orders on occasion. Grainger and copper state will only order boxes. 10.9 is the correct grade in metric. I machine the spindle spacers. You want legit cut spacers or you going to go ghetto with washers?

I don't know if this is the right thread to ask this in but I am currently running 3.5/4.5 (Professional install, notched) on my Tacoma and all I have installed on it is DJM 3/4 kit and Bilstein HD struts front and back.
I would really like to get my truck to 4.5/5.5, and I was going to buy spindle spacers and a bigger leaf spring spacer to achieve that. But I was recently told that getting spindle spacers in the front is not recommended unless I get new coils, which I did not want to spend another 200$ to get different coils.

Basically my question is what is the cheapest alternative I can do to drop another (1) inch in the front and back?

But for starters if you ate running DJM 3/4 and bilsteins front and back the struts and shocks may be shorter than stock but they do not drop the vehicle .5"
Just saying haha
But second you can definitely run a spacer up front with your set up Whodatpopcorn is running 1" spacer for a 4" drop up front and 4.25" blocks out back
If you wanna sit 4.5/5.5 you can be like Phil which he is running DJM 3" up front with 1.5" spacers I believe which he makes
And 4" blocks and 4x4 leafs
I'd recommend finding some 6 lugged leaf springs to achieve the right drop height so u not stack blocks however with the spacer you will have camber no matter what!
You will be negative but depending on your spacer will determince your camber
I wouldn't suggest sobbing drop coils with DJM and have spacer cuz you will have insane camber and be slammed like 6"

Hope this helps out man!

I'm running XII performance drop coils and DJM up front
Lil over 5" drop up front my camber is about -.8 on each side which isn't that bad but it is still camber and will ware tires faster I have mines toe in just a lil for better tire wear
Runs straight and smooth
Thank you for the constructive response, however I just managed to come across a drop kit package that is being sold by XII http://www.xiiperformance.com/?page_id=1003
Could you check that out for me and tell me if it's alright?
What I really wanted to do is what whodatpopcorn did I guess. It seems to be the most cost efficient and simple.

Yup, you can do the spacer without buying new coils.

Does anyone know if you can take the stock sway bar from another Tacoma and mount it in the base model?

I'm the one that recommended he buy the stiffer stock height coils before doing the 1" spacers. Being that at 5" of drop up front he will want to be stiffer so as to not bottom out every where



and no K only 5 lug sway bars work. I bought a 6lug one once, it no worky.
