Wink Dream Lift Kit Question

This is my first post. Sorry if it's been done before!!!!!

Alright I don't know much about Tacomas. I just bought a 2010 Double Cab TRD Sport 2WD Short bed and don't know much about the suspension. I was a Jeep guy for a long time and can do anything to them. My question is if you could put any lift on your Taco what would it be? I am looking for advice for mine and want to lift it but I have no idea which ones are good. I am going to have a mechanic friend of mine help me put it on but even he doesn't know. I am not looking for a "BUDGET" lift here. I have a newborn and want it to ride as SMOOTH as possible for her. I am thinking about 3" lift or so just to get some beefier tires and rims on there and stand out a little. And if anyone knows anything about the "Leveling Kits" also please let me know.

Oh yeah and could you tell me a good place to purchase them also?

Welcome to TW. Search the "suspension" section there are tons of ideas for lifts, and also there is 3 or 4 stickies that would be very helpful.

Everyone's ideal lift kit is going to be a little different, depending on their use. A good OME lift kit would get you your 3" and a smooth ride. Leveling kits aka "spacers" get a bad rap for making the ride rougher than stock. SO I would go the shock/spring route for a comfy ride.

If at first you don't succeed, don't try skydiving

your options will depend highly on how much you want to spend. if you don't mind us asking, what kind of budget are you looking at for a lift? it will help us better recomend options for you.

and as hendooman said, the suspension section is packed full of good information.

congrats on the baby btw!

I didn't want to spend any more than $1500 if possible.

I already have a fund set up for her Jaso. I am going to put the rest of my play money into it after I do the lift.
