Anyway to raise STOCK Front end.

Hey guys, i was wondering if there was anyway i could alter my front end to sit higher/level with my back end without spending any money on a lift kit. I have heard of people altering their torsion bars on different pick ups which made the truck sit higher or level, their choice, but is there anything i can do?

I think spacers alone would do it for you?

I put 1.5 inch leveling spacers on mine and now the front is about 1/2 inch higher than the rear. I bought some 1 inch blocks for the rear but haven't installed them yet. Not sure if I will or not. I hear that getting the suspension TSB done will raise the rear about an inch so I may look into that option instead of the blocks.

if a 1.5" spacer will raise it .5" higher than the back, y do they sell 2.5" leveling spacers? that would raise it 1.5" over the rear...hypothetically

There is no way to lift the front without a "lift kit" other than the Bilstein 5100's. BTW, 1st gen Tacos don't have torsion bars.

Not sure about that, but before I had the spacers installed, the rear was 2 inches higher than the front.

If you would have noticed i stated that some people have messed with their torsion bars on DIFFERENT trucks. Then i asked if there was a way to make my tacoma sit level.

So then..essentially..on my stock truck..if I just get a 2.5'' spacer kit..and throw on some bigger tires..I will get the pre runner look for my truck then..i wont have to or want to lift my rear..Zack i think the best way would be to grab some spacers dude and get some bigger tires perhaps and you should be good to go man.

Hey what do you have yours adjusted to? I just got my 5100's in today and I am going to be putting 285/60-18's, which is the same height as yours but just a little wider.
