    Was wondering what y'all thought was the best and most cost efficient 3inch lift for a 2001 prerunner. My 32's rub right now so I wanna get a suspension lift and add 33's later. Planning on installing myself so let me know what you think also what would be better suspension or body lift? Thanks!!!

    Lifting probably won't help your rubbing. You need a different backspacing on your wheels, or wheel spacers.

    get a sledgehammer if you just want to fix the rubbing. For a lift go with some coilovers for the front. There are a couple different routes to go with the back.
