Does any one have pic's of a 2nd gen style taco with a Leveling kit and a Add a leaf? I want the added tow capacity of the add a leaf but I also want some what of a lift ( not ridicoulus, just big enough) and Im running 265-75-17's So i dont want it to make the tires look tiny either.

Any one??

I now have coilovers but had a 2.5" spacer and AAl on 285s. Pretty good set-up just stiff, especially off road.

I have a 08 tacoma AC in January 09 i put 2.5 coilover spacers in the front it was called a leaveling Kit(Part#DAYKT09116BK) and 285/75/16 Bridgestone A/T Duller Revo's. Acouple of weeks later it looked like the rear end was saging but i measured the two ends i guess the back end in the tacoma just looks low. So for a better look i put 1.5 inch Add a leaf's and i did notice some rubing issues with my tires because of having a bigger tire on a stock wheel, i put 1/4 inch spaces on the wheels and now no rub. i have gone through a lot to make it right, even tho i have a tiny bit of steering wheel shimmy at and between 55-65 it becomes less when i balence my tires. besides the shimmy it rides a little stiff like you can feels alot of the bumps in the road at high speeds like every truck. all in all great decision in a less expensive lift.




next to my buddies H2 His is a smige taller than mine i have better gas mileage and its faster
cost of and lift $215
tires $900

I just bought a 2010 Taco D/C V-6 4x4 6 speed TRD Sport in Barcelona Red. I want to just level it out. I want spacer's that go on top of the coils. Anyone recommend anything. Coil overs are nice, but I don't want to have to mod anything. Just want the front to look level with the back. And to get rid of these 265/65 17 inch tires. If I could find a decent coil over system for the front with no mods. Than I would probably do it.

The tuff country just involved putting 3 inch spacers over struts. Wouldn't have taken 10 hours if I didn't have to run to auto zone that day. Could have been done in 6 hours or so. Involves disasembling alot in front
