    Hi guys im new to TacomaWorld and i was wondering if any of you guys know of a lowering kit that does a 1" front (spring) and 2" rear (blocks). I just bought a 2009 Tacoma access cab in black then i got ASA 18"x8" wheels W/ BFGoodrich 18-245-55 tires. Ill try and post a pic when i reply.

    Ive been looking on the internet for the last few nights and had no luck.

    Those minis are pretty low as is... should have gone bigger rims if you're making it a street truck.

Sport wheels added.
    unless there was a radical change in the suspension between the 08 and 09, I'd think an 08 spring/block would work no problem. Those are very basic components and should be easy to work out.

    With a slight alteration in height and the upgraded wheels, it'll look pretty good. Post up the pics when you get it done.

    Nice truck. I agree, a little loss of altitude and it'll be just right with that wheel/tire combo.
