    You should change out those chrome tacoma badges and TRD stickers for black ones to keep the black on red look

    I don't know if this is right or not but I've heard to measure the length in between the fender and the wheel on front and back on both sides then deside by how much of a difference is

    spacer lifts are notoriously frowned upon for their inability to add any real benefit to the suspension. it just pushes the current suspension down but gives you no increase in suspension travel. also have the ability to bottom or top out the shocks causing failure.

    save the $125 and buy at least 5100's for the front

    ^^^ overextended balljoints, loss of travel, harsh ride, and possible shock damage are standard features of a spacer lift. plus that kit doesn't even come with longer rear shocks.

    I would highly suggest returning that kit and getting a suspension lift that replaces the springs and shocks. Trust me, you will not be happy with it...Your shocks and springs, if original, are already well worn at 14 years old and will quickly turn to shite. Plus your front bumpstops will become useless as the shock will bottom out before the LCA hits the bumpstops.
