    Hey guys, its time for me to buy a full on 6 inch lift.

    Right now i have a billie 5100 all around with eibach coils and a 1 inch block in the rear.

    The kit im looking at is this http://www.suspensionconnection.com/cgi-bin/suscon/56900-tacoma-lift-kit.html

    Is there anything i would need to purchase or can i use the existing bilsteins with this kit? I have 33s already too.

    Thanks in advance, Josh.

    Im sure people will think its negative, but i dont have the 2200 or whatever needed for pro comp or fabtech kits. even 1800 is a stretch. its what i can afford now with the money ive worked many long weekends for during school.

    one of them is for VSC, if you read the fine stuff, EXP5073B requires at least 18 inch wheel, EXPK5066B requires at least 17 and it is for normal trucks

    you can run wheel spacers possibly, but, more than likely you'll have to upgrade, besides the fact that my truck had 17" opt wheel package, i went with 17 bc i knew i was doing 6" in future.

    I dunno if the pro comp will work though the spindle setup is a little different then the fabtech spindles.

    No i dont have any pictures but all snap some tomm when the lights better and send them to you. But the problem with smaller rims is clearing the tie rod ends.
