    alright i looked all over the site for the past few days and i cant find exactly what im looking for, might not have looked enough. anyway i was looking around the internet and i really want 3 inches of lift on my 2003 tacoma for 33" tires and i only have a budget for a lift of around 300 bucks:eek: so if you guys have opinons on the tuffcountry lifts rough country and the toytec lifts i would love to hear them. i am leaning towards this one http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pa...tegory_id=120&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    Bilstein 5100s set at 2.5 and a rear 1.5" AAL should let you clear 33s with trimming

    You will have to goto downsouthmotorsports.com for the billies and toytec.com for the eibachs..shipping will kill you at toytec, think it was something like $35 from there but DSM is free plus you get a discount on both sites for being a member here

    One guy said he got more lift with bilstein 5100's set at 2.5" than he had with a 3" spacer lift.

    I have the 5100's all around with the front set at 2.5", and 2" shackles in the rear. Right now i have 32x11.50x15 tires, but it looks like I would have plenty of room to clear 33's. My wheels are 3.75" backspacing, that will make a difference too

    when ever i find some dam free time i am installing my billys and 2" aal i have sitting in the boxes on the floor. if you get the billys at dsm and the rear lift from toytec you are looking at around $420 for everything shipped, not a bad price.

    I agree, bilistein 5100s with coil (you can use your stock ones if you want to save $) and an add a leaf in the rear. Buy used for sure, get a friend to help install.

    Its your suspension and daily driver so I suggest you save up for something that will give you a good ride then putting a budget because do it once and do it right.

    but billies and OME coils dont pair up as well as just going all OME, if i was going to use ome id get the nitrochargers too go with the coils but billies and stock or eibachs will come out about the same as all OME set-up in the end

    And you got a $230 lift.

    For a marginal addition of money you can have all four bilstein 5100's and an AAL
