    If i was to have bilsteins all around with a 2" AAL and new UCA's, what all could i add to provide even more lift? Can i just buy more AAL's for the back? And what would you do with the front? Thanks!

    I would ditch the Bilsteins and AAL. (assuming you don't actually have these yet?)
    (keep the Bilsteins if you have them and drop the OME struts and shocks)
    Then go with a full OME kit.

    Front:
    885's + 90000's
    Sway bar relocate kit

    Rear:
    Dakar spring packs
    Carrier bearing drop kit
    N182 shocks

    Get it all at ToyTec

    Edit:
    Forget 33's unless you want to lose flaps and cut plastic.
    Might have to go higher as well.
    The higher you go the more your CV's will hate you :)

    1. Yes, most report caster adjustment problems at this height and an aftermarket UCA fixes this.
    Best current deal is Light Racing (SPC) from Amazon for $380 shipped.
    Toytec will price match and they carry the LR UCA.
    The LR UCA is the only adjustable aftermarket UCA.

    The next step up is the Camburg ball joint UCA. It's $375 plus Moog BJ's which are about $26 each. Wheeler's Off Road has this UCA.
    Get the BJ's locally for a better price than Wheeler's if you want to go this route.
    Above that for UCA's you get into the various Uniball offerings that start at about $630.

    2. Toytec will assemble the front struts and install a trim packer on the driver's strut spring seat.
    This special spring seat spacer compensates for the "Taco Lean" phenomenon.
    They have a 1/4" top spacer that will yield a 1/2" in actual lift. This will work with the stock length top plate bolts. If you think that you want their larger top spacer you will have to have longer studs installed at the time of strut assembly.

    Might be best to call in your order so there's no mixups.
    Don't forget to ask for your Tacoma World discount.
    You might also get free strut assembly if you're buying a complete kit.
    I would ask about it.

    Here's the page with the misc. lift parts :

    There is indeed, I just received delivery of one.

    Go on their "kit" page and work the drop-downs.
    You just add the misc stuff that you want that doesn't appear in the drop-downs.
    You might want to call them so you can communicate exactly what you want.
    They like "phone" if you know what I mean.

    Now these "spacers" are not those nasty tall spacers that the ghetto lifts use.
    They are short and are just used for final trim adjustments after the springs break in.
    You may not need them at all.

    No, not that much.
