Need advice on lifts

So my girlfriend has 99 Tacoma xcab v6 manual with this terrible fabtech coil+upper a-arm kit and a body lift... Needless to say it rides like crap... Right now it's on 31's and she wants to keep it that way. I'm thinking the way to go is the camburg uniballs+ coilovers, and the fabtech spindles and add-a-leaf with shackles... What do you think? We don't to to intense off roading but drive in snow quite a bit.
Thanks

sounds good but heard about fabtech spindle's cracking, on desert trucks but none the less they are cracking.

I'd probably just throw some bilstein 5100s on all 4 corners and call it good. Just set em at 2.5" and it'd beef it up just enough to look mean

Eek... Are they all cracking in the same place? And it's her daily so, there won't be any serious desert running... And are both of the kits I'm talkin about 100% bolt on?

Is her current lift a sub-frame type lift? Does she already have Fabtech spindles on the rig?

i dont think it has spindles... i think it only has coils and a-arms with a body lift... do you know what the measurement is on stock or lift spindles? what exactly do you mean by sub-frame too?

Negative on the pre-runner... I wish it was that easy lol... it says it will fit 5-lug though; or are there 5 lug prerunners too? how much fab work is needed to make the prerunner lifts work or what kits are out there?

And if anyone with a first gen wouldn't mind measuring their spindle that would be awesome. (center of hub to top of spindle)
thank you!
