    Ok, I need some technical help.

    I have a 2004 Tacoma that has a FABTEC 3 1/2" lift installed (new shocks and springs-Front, new shocks and add a leaf-Rear)
    The ride is pretty stiff now. Yes, I knew it would be a little stiff but not like this and the wife will not ride in it now and my back is not in the best of shape.

    I rode in a 2012 Baja edition Taco and REALLY liked the suspension, it soaked up the bumps and off-road was great.

    Here is my question: What suspension lift will give me the 3" or 3 1/2" lift I need and want with the same soft ride as the 2012 Baja Taco I drove???
    I am going to put 32" tires on it after I get this sorted out.

    I have read the suspension posts until I am cross eyed and I can't find and answer.

    Thank you in advance for any help or insight you can give me.

    Brian

    The non expo leaf springs from all pro. And and there front coilovers. Or for a couple more hundred dollars you can get some king, icon, camburg or sway away coil overs. Hope this helps
