There are no 4" lifts for the front. Pay now and do it right and get either the Bilstein 5100s for the front or any of the replacement coilovers like King, Sway-A-Way or Icon Dynamics. Why just lift the front and not the rear?

I have to be honest with you, it's going to look really weird just lifting the front. Go ahead and save the money for the rear as well. You said yourself you don't want to do it half-assed. What's more half-assed than lifting half of your truck?

Yeah, that is fricken expensive! Take a look at Wheeler's for some other options on just the lifts.

You can also look at www.toyteclifts.com I ended up getting the OME coils/shocks with tsb and aal and i love it. I didn't break the bank either and its a good quality lift. Coilovers are great but you need to ask yourself is the lift for looks or true off-roading? Don't get me wrong, i can do some great off-roading with my set up but but my truck is a daily driver. I kind of pamper it.

Toytech or Revtek. I highly recommend, saving for UCA's (UpperControlArms) before you install the lift as well. You will be much happier in the long run, along with having the satisfaction of it being done too.

there are ways to get a 4" in the front. camburg lift 4" lift spindles but you need to use aftermarket shocks. also total chaos has 3.5"lift spindles that when set with aftermarket coilovers you can achieve between 3.5"-6.5" total. but that set up can get very expensive.

i don't know how much you want to spend but camburg has some really nice coilovers. i just put them on my truck and i really like them and the ride is really nice! but they can be a little pricey for some people. I think I paid $1600 for the coilovers and UCAs and thats just for the front. I'm planning on getting the deaver rear leafs with bilsteins when i get more money saved up, i think its going to be around $800 more. in my opinion, if you have the money, do it right the first time. but if something like toytec is more in your price range..i've never really heard of people having problems or disliking it so i'm sure you would be happy either way

Don't use blocks for the rear, they'll give you axle wrap, which isn't good. Get some replacement leaf packs or AALs for the rear.

I would SKIP spacer lifts, Revtec/Daystar/etc. Go with a set of shocks and coils and an AAL or new leaf pack out back. Get new UCA's while you are at it.
