Help with picking a Susp lift for 03 yota

Alright,

So I have an 03 Ext Cab Taco. I dont know a whole lot about lifts, only that since im an off roader I DONT want a body lift. I do want to be able to fit 33's on it. So from what I have read 3' susp lift looks like the way to go.

Now my problem... I have been looking at the diff Susp lifts, and i have no idea whats good.




Like i said this truck is for offroading NOT SHOW! so susp lifts only.

Thank you!

Hey I too am looking at lifts and the little that i know ARB stuff seems really good. Most olders posts if you search thru them I see OME alot and only read good things. If you go to ARBUSA.com they will send you a free catalog with dealer contact info and you can get a parts list from the web site for your truck, free to print off . not much info but a place to start. Good luck

So Your ganna want to go with a Coilover lift, and either AAL or full leaf pack for the rear.

Toytec, Sway-A-Ways, and Icon... I think, make real good coilovers for our trucks.

You check out Toyteclifts.com...And WheelersOffroad.com
Great products and prices!!!

what kind of offroading are you planning on doing?

what part of Cali are you in?

different regions, different terrain call for different types of set ups...

what works in one area of wheeling, may not work as well in another and vice versa...

I suggest coilovers from ToyTec to Sway-A-Way to Camburgs to Icons for the front and a full custom leaf pack for the rear w/ some nice resi. rear shocks. Give us a budget.

at bare minimum, i would strongly suggest looking into higher end coilovers like Kings, SAWs, Camburg, or Icons for the front, and a full 8 leaf pack with resi shocks in rear...

figure front end alone will run about $800 to $1,200 and rear will run about $800...

PM me for shortcuts though...
