Lifting 1989 toyota pickup 4x4
 
What is the best kit that I can get for an 89 toyota pickup 4x4. 3.0 l v6 automatic trans. I don't want the 4" lift kits with blocks that I have been finding and I don't want to spend more than a couple hundred. I can install myself and go from there. I prefer new leaf packs and something up front where I don't have to crank the torsion bars too much....

Your choices for the front are: ball joint spacers for 1-2 in of lift, torsion bar crank, or drop bracket for 4 in of lift. Or, SAS it. :D

In your price range... Go for the ball joint spacers. You'll be able to run 33s with them.

For the rear you can do blocks, add a leaf, lift shackles or a new leaf pack. I have 2in lift shackles and a 4in block. My factory leafs are flat though, so I'm going to replace my blocks with a new 4in lift leaf pack soon.

I don't like the stress that blocks put on leaf packs. Plus mine are flat anyways, so I am going to see if I can find someone to build me a pack for 2.5-3 inches of lift. I am going to go ahead and do the ball joints spacer for the front.

Sounds like a pretty good plan to me!

Yeah ball joint spacers are easy to install and pretty cheap.. If you want some really nice and fairly cheap springs for the rear you could try buying some used chevy 63 inch springs.. You can take a leaf out if its too high
