    I have a 3 inch spacer suspension lift on my 08 Tacoma. I want to get 2-3 more inches of lift. I was thinking of a leaf pack with aals for the back to give me 2 more inches. Is there a way to lift up the front some more without going to a body lift? Thanks for the help!

    OME 3" lift with 885 coils. OME Shocks with TSB 1.5 AAL. 285/75/16 KM2s. XD Hoss 16" wheels. DDM Tuning 6000K HIDs, H10 6000K Fogs. BHLM. Debaged. 20% tint on front windows.
    If you want to run 3+ you will have to buy a drop bracket lift.. or get lift spindles (didn't realize you had a PreRunner)

    No spindles are reasonably priced. There are none much under $1000.

    The only ways to get over 3" of lift in the front are spindles, drop bracket (which costs more than spindles), SAS, or 3" suspension +3" body.

    I was just wanting 2" more lift and dont think a 2" body would be that noticeable? How hard is the install on spindles?

    well first depending on if your spacer is top plate or preload, if you could actually jam down the lower control arm to fit in, your upper and lower ball joints will fail and you will either bottom out or over extend your shocks on bumps.


    leading to this

    Well I am not sure which one it is but I am assuming top plate. It is the simple spacer that just bolts on top. Would one work and the other kind fail?
