    My 07 Tacoma sits on spacers and blocks for 3"F/2"R. But I want coilover setup and leafs instead. Would any of you recommend this front coilover setup to retain the 3" of lift upfront? Also should I add a leaf for the rear or get a new leaf pack(I want to retain 2" of lift for the rear of the truck)? Any suggestions on which brand to get for both from and rear? Any input is greatly appreciated thank you Screenshot_20200708-155054_Chrome.jpg

    Those are fine for the front.
    The rear should really do a leaf pack if you carry weight in the bed. Aal is ok, but the stock leaf packs are not the best for long term solutions.

    I really don't carry weight in the bed to be honest. But I'd assume even if I added a leaf it's probably better than the block I have sitting in the back. I saw the Dakar ome leak pack but it raises the rear 2.5 and I'm looking for 2" instead

    You can always pull the overload leaf to take away the 1/2 inch.

    Oh ok then that's what I'll do. I'll look into the ome dakar leafs then. I'm going to have a guy work on my u joints and correct my angles, but I don't want him to fix the angles based off what the spacer/block lift is giving me. And I know if i had the coilovers and leak pack installed it would probably give me slightly different angles(than the spacer/block lift) even though I would still want the 3"F/2"R with the new setup

    This just means you pay sales tax... if you order from a vendor out of state that doesn't have a brick and mortar store in cali, then no sales tax is added and may get free shipping. If there no free shipping, then the sales tax is typically cheaper.

    I did happened to call a local off road shop earlier and they only had eibach coilovers and my brother (who has 2014 tacoma sport) said he's not too sure about those and to do more research. Between those coilovers and the freedom off road coilovers I'm not too sure I would want them based off of old thread with negative user experiences with those setups. I'd rather go toytec/bilstein but I'm trying to stay in budget. But really if I could stretch the budget (wife won't let me) then I'd buy kings or icon reservoir setup. I just want something good that are not gonna break my budget, I can have a comfortable ride and still go offroad AND that are not spacers/blocks

    Bilstein 5100s and a good leaf pack paired with ome coil springs is what your looking for. Unless you want to go up 1 more inch with maxtrac 4"spindle lift.
    Is called the chadspride special.

    So when I order the front bilstein 5100s I'd be also ordering ome coils instead of it being a one piece setup like the 5100's with the toytec on the already? I left Maria an email and will call tomorrow since the are now closed. I'm on their site and I see the 5100s and ome coils

    I think they carry toytec also. Just talk with her and let her know what your intentions are with the lift. She will point you in the best direction for your needs.

    Thank you so much for your help.. Another question (cuz I don't know how to do this) since I got good feedback and what I wanted out of making this thread. How do I close/delete it? (I'm a noob around here)

    Lol. No need to attract attention to it. Just leave it as is, it will be ignored like most lift threads
