06 PreRunner Coil and Lift Questions

Hello

I just picked up a 2006 PreRunner and am new to Tacoma World. I did some searching but could find a direct answer to a few questions I have. I have the TSB and want to level (about 2" in front) and fit some 265/75's. This is supposed to be my DD. I'm a veteran Jeep builder and I like to go for the overkill...but I'm new to the IFS (not Toyota...I just sold my 89 FJ 62).

1. Is there a real difference between 2.0 and 2.5 Coilovers (besides $250) Any suggestions?
2. How intense are the alignment issues with a 2'' lift
3. Are there any steering issues with a 2'' after an alignment
4. Sway bar relocation...just spacers? Any additional issues?

Thanks in advance...

will

welcome to tw,Will!!!

with only leveling your truck, you shouldnt have really any steering issues at all, and alignment will be pretty close to stock to even worry about really. you can do coilovers, but something else that will work great for you is getting a set of bilstein 5100 adjustable front shocks and replace your stock ones. have the billy's set at 1.75, and you should be good and level, and it will be cheaper than coilovers. hope this helps.

oh yeah.............no swaybar relocation brackets needed.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
