FNG here.(fukin new guy)
Got myself a 2006 Access Cab 4x4 Tacoma 6-Speed 4.0 V6.
75% city driving
20% towing (dirtbikes, jet skiis, boat, camping gear, and household crap)
5% off road/hunting/fishing
I want to lift it, and I have been doing my research on this site.
I pretty much took the most popular ideas, and decided to copy them for myself...
I'm gonna keep the truck for a while, so reliability and durability are of high priority.
I was thinking about going with the Toytech Coilovers set at 3", Bilstein 5100 set at 1.5" and the AAL 2" for the rear. The .5" in the rear should settle in and hopefully I'll be at 3.0" front & rear. I also want to run Moto Metal 951 rims with 285/75/16 tires.
I pretty much want my Taco to look like this....
Now for my questions:
1. With the above setup, will I need UCA's to help with rubbing/alignment? If so, would the Light Racing ones work, or should I opt for the Total Chaos?
2. Would there be vibration/noises from setting the lift at 3.5" rather than 3"?
3. Would I need a differential drop and sway bar relocator as well?
4. Is there a cheaper lift kit that will offer the same results???
I am a full time college student and part time employee. Money is hard to make, and even harder to save.
If any of you know sites that offer the above stated products at good prices, please let me know, and it will be greatly appreciated.
