    I have a 2001 Tacoma Xtra Cab with a TRD offroad package stock, and i'm looking to beef up my suspension. My main purpose is to carry extra load in the bed without compromising the truck. I haul a lot of firewood in the rear. Ususlly full, every other day. I'm afraid this will hurt the suspension and i'm looking for suggestions on what i could add to the truck. I dont do any wheeling but was looking to get a 4"-6" lift anyway but wasnt sure if this would effect the ammount i could carry in the back so i held off... any suggestions you could provide would be great. thanks

    If your wanting to increase your load capacity, put some aal's in the rear.

    i'm not too sure what brand. i'm actually shopping for some AAL's too. Too match the AAL's up front, i would run some Adjustable Ride Height Bilstein 5100 shocks. I've got the 5100's on mine and I love them

    that kit looks good, the only the thing is that it uses spacers up front. I'm not a big fan of spacers because of some stuff I've heard about them.

    If you are looking to increase your payload i would look into an air bad set up since you r loaded down alot. You can put any lift on you want after that. We carry and can install both of those, depending on where your located at.

    youre not going to get 4-6" of lift out of an AAL

    for that youre going to HAVE to purchase new spring packs OR buy big blocks

    either way youre not going to increase...and in most cases you'll decrease your payload

    maybe look into Timbren helpers


    My AAL did NOT increase my payload capacity...but i dont really worry bout that cuz i dont haul a lot...but its a FANTASTIC ride
