About to pull trigger on lift but have ?s
Im about to buy a Toytec lift (3in) for my 07 prerunner which sits on 265s BFG A/Ts. Im just questioning if this is the best lift for the money? I do not want to spend more then $500 on the actual lift.
So would this left with the 2" AAL be my best option?

*I tried my best to answer this question on my own before posting so sorry if its on here somewhere*

What would be the need for new coils? Better ride?

The coils are longer and do the lifting vs preloading the stock coils with the billies to gain height

$500 from Toytec will lift your front end (shocks+coils). Keep in mind you cannot assemble coils and struts yourself without a spring compressor. Just spend a little more, do the front end up real nice, new shocks all around, and go with AAL's for the back. These are not adjustable, but lots of folks go with OME stuff for a 3" job. http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

Shocks regulate the speed at which your coilovers and leaf springs move, so they definitely play a huge role in ride quality, but they aren't as load-bearing as you might think...aren't responsible for handling the big hits.

Could I not just get new coils in the front and a AAL in the rear? And call it quits? BTW I dont offroad even tho i do have BFG ATs.
