Can you add to an existing lift?

I have put a 3" lift on my tacoma, but the height isnt quite where i want it, is there anything i can do to add to the lift without replacing it at the time being???

If you have a 4x2 I would suggest getting Camburg Spindles. Those spindles will put you at a 4" lift and it won't sacrifice ride quality.

Other than that, you can't really add more lift...

You must be running a 2.5" lift, not a 3". A simple coilover can give you a little more lift if you like.

so do u have 5100's plus the 1/4" spacer or 5100's plus OME coils, or just the 5100's? they only give 2.5" by themselves

Get your spindles first, you can upgrade as you go on the other parts.

Yes definitely get some pictures up. Would help to know exactly what your running so you can be best advised. I would say add the Toytec Coilover kit for the 5100's. Cheaper than spindles. Do you have a lift in the rear also?

Oh yea welcome to TW!
