    I've been doing a lot of research and still can't make up my mind on which way I should go about lifting my truck. I have an 07 tacoma, black, double cab, 4x4, short bed. I don't plan on wheeling it much, but maybe on occasion. I think 6" is to high for what I do and 3" isn't enough but I think I'm going to settle for a 3". I hear a lot of people have a lot of problems with spacer lifts, I guess I'm looking for what would be the best deal as far as looks, handling and price. Please help... :eek:

    Welcome to TW. Check out Bilstein 5100's shocks or OME shocks and springs if you are on a budget. If you prefer some adjustability, check out the Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit.

    There are plenty of other options too, check out the suspension sub-forum. tons of info in there.

    I just installed 5100's @ 1.75 setting (2 inch lift) and getting tsb leaf springs for the back. Not the height you want but it rides sweet. I just got off a jeep trail and had front/back wheels off the ground multiple times and truck handled like a champ.

    If i had unlimited funds it would be

    fox's up front with TC UCA's and deaver leafs in the back....

    I want to get the best deal but at the same time don't want to regret my decision. I read that a lot of people wish they would've done their lift a certain way the first time.

    ^you're going to get better quality from the OME, which is why it's 300 bucks more lol. People don't generally go procomp unless they're lifting 6 inches bc it's one of the few companies that offer that size lift.
