    Greetings Fellas

    I just picked up a new DCSB and want to lift it. I read the lift FAQ and have a good idea of what I'm looking for. Can you offer some suggestions and advice? I hear body lifts and blocks are not good but I dont want to spend a ton, so I was considering spacers for the front and AAL's for the back. I found this at Toytec for around $250, here is the link http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72Is this a good setup? would it be worth the extra expense to get coil overs? An extra $750, as they are about $1k. I know brand preference is personal but let me know what you recommend.

    Any other inexpensive setups suggested?

    My biggest concern is with going with spacers for the front and later regretting I had gone with coil overs. Is there a big difference in ride quality?

    By the way, no offroading will be done (it's a 2WD, lol), some light towing, but mainly for looks.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'm really enjoying the forums.

    I had spacers on my tundra and hated it. It makes the ride rougher and puts added strain where it need not be. Alot of shops I've talked to are recommending the bilstein 5100's and a AAL kit. Thats my plan for my 2012 taco
