Background info if your interested or it helps
Okay, So I have a 99 tacoma 4x4 with 160,000 on it all stock mechanically I will have the truck for at least a year but most likely two to three until I upgrade and pass it on down to my brother. Being in college very close to campus and only 60 miles from parents I hardly put any miles on my vehicles. (about 3000 last year) I don't wheel my truck but do take it "offroad" for fishing or camping etc but nothing hard at all the four wheelers get us through the hairy situations haha. I do like the look of the lift and will need new tires soon and figured I would lift as well and do the whole package. My last truck was an 06 that I bought set up with 5100's and aal in the rear with 33's and I liked it alot.
I do like to "do things right" and I will be passing the truck on to family so I don't want it to die on him so I was researching what to do for this truck and entertained myself with the spacers good/ bad debate here
. I had thought they were bad and it seems both sides are debated heavily.
THe truck has had routine maintainance but was used as a hunting truck before me and I noticed some wear on the plastics so some wear must be present on the trucks suspension. I also read that trucks with higher mileage should be treated differently then brand new trucks in regards to which kit is better like since the suspension is pretty loose from years of wear and tear a lift kit that stiffens ride quality may make it closer to when it was off the lot.
