    Iv had this tacoma for a while now and i was wondering if anyone had suggestions on how to make it faster. I also have a lift in the front but it sags in the back and im having a hard time finding block kits to level it out. Ive found some but in the end they say it wont fit my 5 lug

    What this guy says. You have a truck, not an MR2/supra. The engine was well balanced to push a vehicle that weighs what your truck weighs while being able to carry a load of some sort. It's made more for torque, not horsepower. Best thing you can do is re-gear to re-balance the other way. but be prepared for crap mileage.

    So can anyone help me raise the rear end. It sits lower about 2.5 inches lower than the front.

    Get a set of Deavers... I have the 8 pack. After settling, I have between 2.5" & 3" of lift in the rear. You'll need to purchase new shocks too. While you're at it, do the U bolt flip. The back of your truck will be complete for quite a while considering the mods you want.

    Hope this helps you.
