    I HAVE A 3" TOYTEC SPACER LIFT AND WANT TO TAKE IT DOWN TO 2.5"s. MAYBE THEY CAN ALIGN THE TRUCK A LITTLE BETTER. COULD I CUT PART OF THE SPACER IN WITH THE COIL OFF OR SHOULD I JUST TAKE THE TOP SPACER OFF. IF I CUT THE SPACER DOWN I GUESS IT WOULD RIDE A LITTLE SOFTER, BUT HOW MUCH DO I CUT OFF. I HAVE ACCESS TO A MACHINE SHOP SO IT SHOUD BE EASY TO CUT BUT WOULD IT BE WORTH IT?

    I would not alter any kind of suspension... You would do better to go with 5100's at 2.5". Then you could ditch the spacer and have a better ride for about $200. Got any pics of your tacoma?
