coilovers AND spacers

right now im running 3' icon extended travel coilovers on my 98 taco, but now i want it to be a little bit higher, but my icons are awesome so could i maybe use regular spacers to get that extra inch/inch and a half of lift? i know itll fit, the real question is will it affect the ride and performance or would it just be best to get new higher coilovers?

If your coils are cranked all the way up, it might be time for new coils (not knowing how old they are). Personally, I wouldn't stack lifts, maybe look into taller coils and I'm not sure at what point you'll have issues with a 1st Gen and require a drop bracket style lift. Also, over 3" of lift your CV joints will hate you assuming you have a 4x4, unless you're considering going with a drop bracket lift.

well i got all pro upper a arms right now and the lift isnt all the way up, it goes up to 3.5" but i figured cranking it all the way up would only make it worse if i stack lifts. and theyre fairly new, less than a year of use

3 inch lift up front is MAX without going to a drop bracket lift. Unless you want to replace CV axles often...

If you really want another inch or so, look at a 1-2 inch body lift.
