Spacer Lifts?

Hi everyone, I just got my 09 Tacoma a few weeks ago and it came with spacers on the front and blocks on the back. I was wondering what you guys thought about spacers and if I should look into replacing them sometime. No pictures yet but should start posting a few when I get time.

I had them on my tacoma and it road like crap. The best fix is bilstien 5100 shocks that are hieght adjustable without giving up the ride quality.

Spacers are fine if you don't Offroad much, and definitely don't do any high speed offroading. They just give a terrible ride.

Agreed.....the sr5 springs handle the pre-load better than the TRD but mine had to go, they sucked balls!

It's a world of difference between coil overs and spacers!

5100s best bang for your buck. Coilovers offer best bolt on performance.
