I have been lurking around your web site since I bought my 03 taco and I have read almost every lift related topic and have not been able to find my answer.
First, I am interested in doing a 2.5 or 3 inch lift but I am having troubles deciding between a spacer lift or going with coilovers. I am siding on the coil over route as I know the ride would be good, adjustable but expensive.
The one thing that keeps me from getting interested in the spacer is; will spacing my stock shock 2.5 inches down limit my droop? Reason I ask is droop is the most important part of suspension travel and I don't want my tire lifting off of terra firma every time my suspension needs to drop but doesnt.
Does the 2.5 spacer just space the whole strut assembly down or does it extend the shock further in its throw?
If I go with a coilover I am thinking about King's but am worried about clearance issues. I have read that that kings may bind with the upper control arm. Anyone have any issues, experience, or heard anything of the sorts? Are there other coils out there that are a better bang for my buck?
I offroad my truck pretty frequently. Due to the fact that I live in the Central coast close to Pismo my truck will see everything from sand to woods to rocks.
I just dont want to throw money after something I will have to redue later because its not what I expected.
Also, cool website ya'll got here Im happy to join in the community and I wished I had bought a taco earlier. I love this truck!
