picking a coilover

Hey guys i am looking at getting a lift but dont know what route to go with I was thinking about billys, but then starrted looking at coilovers bot those are really high. I am going for looks and performance. I was really looking at getting billys all the way around and getting OME medium coils for the front and an AAL for the rear. I was also looking at walker evans and swayaway coilover and shocks. Your opinions are greatly appreciated. I have a 08 tacoma d cab 2wd 4.0 V6 automatic. not going with a 6" lift only a 3".

Thanks guys

dude there is a thread asking this same thing like 5 minutes ago... But im not an asshole, and I wont tell you to search before posting a common question, no i wont do that, instead I will just hint at it and answer your question at the same time:

Get Icon or Camburg coilovers, Camburg 1.25" UCAs, and Alcan or Deaver Leaf pack in the rear.

You will spend around $2500 and have a sick setup and you will be happy as hell.

What Silver said was good info. And while I have no experience with those parts, I hear nothing but good things about them. But another option is ToyTec coilovers (5100s with eibach springs), Total Chaos UCAs and an AAL for the rear.

That's what I'm running and I think it cost around $1800 total (installed it myself) and I love the ride! A little stiffer than stock (to be expected), but not harsh at all!

You wheel hard or mostly play on pavement? If offroad, crawling or high-speed wheeling? Intended use will dictate what equipment would best suit your needs.
