awesome if you want to go with a cost friendly lift that wont break the bank really bad you could get the billestien 5100's and use your stock spring and get an AAL for the rear or just set the 5100's to 1.75 of lift so you are level front to back. the billestien shocks can be purchased at downsouth motor sports and toytech along with some other places. down south motorsports has a really really good reputation around tacoma world and so does toytec

alot of people frown upon spacers the 5100's would be a better ride. but you could do spacers

Well spacers it is! They suck balls though, and don't think they make them small enough to level? You only need 1.5 ish inches to level right? 5100's all around would be pretty cheap and you can do yourself!

Nope, but you may need new UCA's. It's hit or miss at 2.5" of lift,
