    i know its been a while since ive been on here but im thinking of doing lower gears and little bigger tires and wanna beef my suspension a little bit, right now its all stock with the daystar 2.5 in kit that has urathane spacers up front and longer greesable shackles in the rear, its sagged quite a bit and im looking to maybe replace with a good 2.5 or 3 in kit that changes leafs and different coilovers up from, i dont jump the truck or anything its just a daily driver and trail truck, i dont want to pay for gas resovoirs or anything just some billys and better coils up front and better leafs in the rear but when i search all i seem to find are either expensive gas resovior adjustable coilovers or just spacer kit, i know some of you guys are runnin just billys up front with aftermarket coils so could somebody help me out and give me some part numbers and price ranges? Also keep in mind im not worried about towing compacity and i want to be as flexy as possible and still be a good daily driver, not worried about a really soft ride as im not running my sway bar now, just looking for a good setup to run some 32s or 33s on stock spacing wheels with little to no trimming, thanks ryan

    So you dont want a set of coilovers, just a shock and lift coil combo?

    (when people say coilovers they usually are refering to adjustable coilovers like Fox, Icon, camburg, Sway away, king...etc..)


    You are thinking bilstein 5100 and eibach 3'' coils. You set the 5100's on the lowest postion and the coils give 3'' of lift.

    get your coils form here: www.toyteclifts.com

    and your shocks form here: www.downsouthmotorsports.com

    You can run a new leaf pack in the rear, like the OME dakar pack to level you out.

    Wheelers offroad also has lift leaf packs available

    judging by his OP, he wants a cheaper coil over option like bilsteins, not the high dollar adjustable coilovers.

    Yes I'm looking for bilateins and the lift coils with a new leaf pack just wondering the cost of such setup and was wandering what part numbers and what leaf pack I need, just wanting an up grade from all stock non trd with uryathane spacers up front and longer shackles in the rear that I have now

    5100's: http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-1...acoma-pre-runner-4wd-pre-load-adjustable.html

    Those are the best places to buy the stuff from. Call both places before you order because they give discounts for TW members.

    I would put on the rear leaf packs and see how level you are, and decide whether or not you want to remove the lift shackles you have on.

    Well, you sprung for the ARB bumper and winch so you're not that poor :D

    Just go to Toytec and get the Old Man Emu full kit with Dakars.
    Have them assemble the coilovers. Done.
