    I currently am running 20" enkei wt4 with goodyear eagles 255/50-20. I bought a set of enkei deep six off craigslist for 540$ and dropped them off to get powdercoated glossy black. They should be done in about 2 weeks. i will be running Cooper Zeon ltz in possibly 33's.In the meantime I need to figure out what lift I am going to go with. I found a guy on craigslist who says he can buy and install a 2.5" front lift and 2" rear for $675
    heres a link:
    http://macon.craigslist.org/pts/3054818166.html

    Ive basically decided i want to go with bilsteins. i was looking around and found this:
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72
    also with 2" AAL AND 5160 shocks.
    my rear shocks are shot and suck. if i go over a speed bump at 5 MPH the whole backend is thrown up. i want to install a good set of rear shocks.

    im confident i can instal the above lift myself. i guess im wondering is should i go with the above lift? my budget is +/- 1,000.

    I would go with the Toytec setup vs. the CL guy. The CL lift is nothing more than a set of Bilsteins 5100s and rear 2" block. The toytec comes with front coilovers and rear AAL. (better ride, more rear load capacity)
