    Seems overpriced.
    The UCAs look exactly like Freedom Offroad which go for $360 when not on sale.
    AAL looks exactly like Torch Offroad I got for $60 on ebay
    Bilstiens can be had for bout treefiddy.
    Is the rest of the kit really worth $550 ish?

    Going to ride like shit doing a pre-load spring and strut spacers. Also tacoma should only need a 3/1 to see level. Measure the flat part of your frame up front (before it starts raising up) and flat part of your frame in the rear (also before it starts raising up) to what exactly you'll need. Very curious to see where they are getting the bilstein 5100 from since they are on a national backorder until May, but most likely august from sources I've talked to. In their description it says the shocks ship separately. I would get a hold of them directly and ask why so you aren't waiting months for product. I would recommend looking into toytec aluma series if you are wanting to upgrade. The bilstein stuff is backordered big time right now. If set up properly it will ride really well. Its what I currently have on my truck. Bilstein 5100 with OME 887 set at 0" setting. Only gave me 2" up front. Then I've got nothing in the rear and I set right at level with a front bumper. But would stay clear of doing the strut spacers and pre load combo to achieve lift height. Need to pick one or the other.

    See those are the helpful replies I was looking for. Thank you both.

    Damn Bilstein back ordered until the fall I was hoping to have a lift on for summer at the latest.

    Just confirm they have the parts physically in stock. The way my shop is set up we list things that we can order but we pull from a large warehouse and currently these warehouses are out of stock. They estimate May but I spoke with Jason at toytec and he estimates august as a realistic date if getting things back in stock for bilstein. Also for fox. Those morons built a new manufacturing facility.... But shut down their old one before the new one was online so we've got some part numbers that have been back ordered since last October/November. So what ever you order. Just make sure you are calling these companies directly to have them physically put hands on the parts. You're lucky toytec is very close to you. Reach out to them on a bilstein kit or their aluma series. Jason or Mookie is our reps but they may be wholesale accounts only. We've sold two now and our customers really like them. If you are going for the full 3" height you'll 100% need upper control arms for a good alignment again. At our shop we use SPC brand with no issues but they are pricey. $650 a pair.

    Why take a chance? There's vendors here who are proven with all the info you'll ever need. I think I paid about that for my OME setup sans UCA's because they aren't needed.

    Here is the budget suspension I currently have and recommend.
    Buy once cry once IMO.
    Front: Bilstein 5100,Freedom Offroad UCA,OME 887,1/4" lean spacer,Superbumps,stainless brake lines
    Rear: Bilstein 5125,Dakar Medium leaf pack w/new bushings, ubolt flip with Superbumps,carrier bearing drop, stainless brake lines.
    Energy Suspension body mounts while you are at it.

    All can be acquired for about $1600-1800 if you look around and use coupon codes.
