Normally we'd supply 885 front coils but if you have another preference let us know. The price is the same regardless of which coils you choose.

If you want to get to 2.75" you would need an 1/8" top plate space but I don't think anyone makes one. You could go with a 1/4" top plate space but that would put you around 3" up front. You can also do the trim packer to help with the drivers side taco lean. As for the rear you can go with an 1.5" or 2" AAL either single leaf or progressive 3 pack OR you can go with the full Dakar leaf spring with the OME kit. There is a thread that has the average lifts achieved with the Dakar pack.
As for price...I found the whole kit for just over $1000 with free shipping from Scott at Truck-Add-Ons (vendor on this site) but I ended up going with 884's (just under 2" of lift up front) and an Icon
progressive 3 pack for the rear (got 2" because I left the over load leaf in).
Also when you get the front up around 2.5" or more you may need to go with new UCA's.
the wheelers listing does not claim a 2.5" lift.
in fact, the description for 885 coil states
- Provides approximately 1.75″ lift on a stock Tacoma 4◊4 with no Bull-Bar or Winch.
It seems nobody makes longer coils that will provide 3" lift on a 4x4 2nd Gen. and all say to add spacers to get the full 3" lift, knowing how bad spacers are, this completely defeats the purpose of getting the spring.
eibach only provides 1.6" lift on 2nd gen, and toytech
sells spacers to get the 3" lift.
actually, the same eibach coil provides a 3"lift on first gen. without spacers so I'm thinking they just never designed or manufactured newer springs for the 2nd gen and just sells the original/old springs as is and tell you to add spacer or bump up the 5100 to 0.85 to get 3" (1.6" + 0.85" + 0.5" spacer ) on 2nd gen. Seems to me like paying a lot and not getting an optimal solution.
