3" suspension lift

I'm looking at putting a 3" suspension lift on my Tacoma, and a set of 285/70/17 tires with xd spy rims. What type of lift do you guys recommend?
Price range for the lift is around 450$. Thanks!!

save you pennies and get a good lift vs putting blocks and spacers, youll have to replace your leaf pack in a year anyways...

Bilstein 5100s are adjustable shocks. So you can buy the shocks and use the stock coils. The shocks have three settings that will lift your front end .85", 1.75" and 2.5". They work by preloading the coils. AAL mean add a leaf, the name describes it, you add a leaf to your leaf pack with more arch to add around 2" of lift. I recomend saving a little more so you can afford coils and shocks up front, a full 3" and you made need aftermarket upper control arms to correct your alignment.

If you dont want to spend more you can always get spacers and blocks but dont say we didnt warn you

Yeah what he said lol and don't get spacers. You will end up paying more in the long run.

This will be driven strictly on the highway, not any off roading at all. Is all of th heavy duty suspension as necessary?

No its not iff you arent offroading, but blocks and spacers will probably ride pretty shitty

What about the pro comp kit where you add a lift on the rear and use the es9000 shocks for the front? Would that be a better alternative to blocks?

Im not familiar with the procomp kit but anything is better than blocks and spacers. I have heard the pro comp kit is pretty stiff

Is this the kit you are referring to? Again i dont know much about pro comp lifts but it looks like it includes AAL, new shocks and new coils, which is better than spacers and blocks.

Heres some opinions on the kit from this site
