Stiff and Noisy Ride under 30 MPH

Hey there.

Just picked up my first Tacoma a couple days ago. I am noticing a couple of things that I'm hoping you all can help with.

  1. When I'm under 30 MPH it's an very stiff ride. If there's a bumpy road I'm flying all over the cab. Keep in mind that I'm used to a 99 honda civic, so is it normal to be so stiff? I do have a level kit on and the tires are a bit larger than stock.
  2. When under 20 MPH, I hear a very loud squeek coming from the front passenger tire area. Along with that, there's a rattle.
I'm fairly certain the front end suspension needs some work because of these issues, I'm just not sure where to start and how to diagnose. Any suggestions? Thanks guys!

Yes the spacer lift will cause that problem. Spacers make struts work at an angle they aren't designed for and preload the strut thus causing it to have a horrible ride..
