    buy yourself some v6 coils daystar coil spacers and some lift spindles. too much work to try to convert it to coilovers or struts

    How much lift from just the coils? and would I have to change anything but just the coils?....b/c even just sitting as high as a SR5 prerunner or stock 4x4 would be fine.

    You'll get 3 inches with the lift spindles and an additional 1.5 inches with the Daystar coil spacers....that should get you the amount of height you want and I agree with joel....that's a lot of money to convert to coilovers

    v6 coils are supposed to give another inch but you might need ucas so stick to the spindles and spacers if your on a budget. wont be as tall as a prerunner but definitely wont be low and fyi blocks for the rear will lower it. get yourself an aal or some shackles

    Thx Guys, I just wish they would have stuck to one set-up for the front, there is almost no info on coils and I'm not a fan of taking them out.

    I'm on a big budget now but with tax time maybe just lift spindles really easy to replace and i never did the bearings or tie rods and i like to replace everything...while its apart.

    Thx guys its just with 90K on this truck and how cheap I got it, I rather not make it just another mini with a crappy ride, Jon Street

    P.S. what tire do you think i can run after the spindles I got 275 / 75's R15 B4 would like to keep the 17's on it with a nice lower pro AT

    thx Backspacing dooh i had some jeep/ranger 15x8 but these aren't all that off-set ? dont think 31x10.50 will work...........

    but i am running 245 45 17's and i think its close but for now i think tires are the least of my worries when the spindles are $400 maybe i can find some used one's?

    Could be the age of the springs too. V6 5 lug coils give some lift but not much id say 1 to1.5?

    BUMP, but only if we won't need different ucas :D

    And when you guys say v6 coils, do you mean 5lug v6 or 6lug v6?.. Or do 5 & 6lug v6s have the same coils? :confused:

    I've looked all over and it doesn't look like there's any aftermarket upper or lowers for our trucks unless you go LT. My concern with the v6 coils is the weak lower ball joint bracket that everyone claims they break.

    I did a little reading on em and it looks like most people that use em on off-road rigs like moog. But the bracket I'm talking about is actually what mounts the lower balljoints to the lower control arm. Here, I think one of these pictures was taken by joels98taco, but this is what the lower ball joint bracket looks like when it breaks and then another of what it looks like mounted to the lower balljoint

    But new balljoints are definitely not a bad idea
