another lift question

hey guys i was lookin at the toytech site and cant decide which is better: this one

FRONT: (2) OME 884 standard/light load front lift coil springs. Also includes ToyTec Top plate spacers for a full 3" front lift & (6) top plate studs.
REAR: (2) 2" lift ToyTec Add-a-leafs by Alcan spring (a long add-a-leaf for the best ride), w/OEM style anti-friction Pads, & new leaf spring center pins.

or this one


FRONT: 3" Front Lift Spacer Kit-- CNC Machined From 6061 T-6 Aluminum (Available with Black anodized finish for $20.00 additional -TAC3B-05-AL). 6 longer top plate spacer bolts.
REAR: 2" lift ToyTec Rear Add-A-Leafs made by Alcan Spring-- With OEM Style anti-friction Pads, these are a long add-a-leaf for the best ride. New Leaf Spring Center Pins.

they aslo have heavier duty spring kit available.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Replacement springs will be much better than spacers.

+1 on the springs, will give you a better ride than the coil spacers.

I went with option 2 and it is definitely a more harsh ride. I would love to know what the new coils feel like, but.... Anyway, regardless of the rough ride, it has helped big time off road.

Either way you will be happy
Any time a lift is being installed, and the spring rates are being altered, new shocks are in order. The OEM TRD Bilstiens are only valved for the stock spring rate, and are not up to the task of dampening preloaded springs, or springs of a higher rate. For a better ride, consder swapping out to the 5100's. OME shocks have a spring rate that is matched to their springs, and the Tacoma.

Of course they will, anything will "work". Here is my advise: Save your money and do it right the first time.

I'd would go with the first kit (OME coils) and some OME struts up front. That combination would match best.
