    I just bought a 1999 Tacoma SR5 Xtra Cab 5 speed manual. The entire car is stock. nothing has ever been changed. It sits pretty low, I'd like it to be a little higher up. I never plan to go off roading in it.


    Here is a photo of the height now.

    I'd like it to look a little more like the 4x4 version.

    If I am not going off road at all with it, should i just go with a body lift? Or a suspension to go along with it? If so how much of a lift do I need to get it to where I want it?


    I'm thinking if I lift it I will have to get larger tires. What size will I need so it wont look so awkward?


    Also, how much money do you think a job like this would cost me? I have no experience with lifts and such, should I get it down in a shop or could I have it done fairly easy with a few helping hands.

    Thanks in advance!

    Go with a spindle lift. It maintains factory ride with about 4" of lift! Best thing for the 2wd.

    Thanks! Do you have any suggestions of a place to buy them? Should i buy high end ones or does it really matter.

    I'm not sure it really matters. I'm not too familiar with who makes them all. Maybe try a google search. Solo motorsports perhaps? I believe you have the 5 lug right? Make sure its for that.

    Okay ill check there. and I'm not really sure what that means , how do i find if it is?

    On solo Motorsports I came up with ’95.5-’04 TACOMA 2WD FULLY-FABRICATED 3″ LIFT SPINDLES. They're selling it for $1,450, is this a fair price?(I wasnt expecting that much). It was in the ’95.5-’04 2WD TACOMA PRE-RUNNER (6-LUG) section under Tacoma.
