    First time tacoma owner and new to Tacoma World. What the best way to lift my 2011 Tacoma 4x4 1.5"... Tired of all the big lifts i have had in the past on different vehicles, looking for something simple and to maintain factory ride and run a slightly larger tire than stock. No off road use to mention, and mud hole once in a while, and not a daily driver. Any help would be great. Thanks......

    I would like to go this route as well. Picking up a 2013 DCSB Prerunner Sport and don't want a big lift (3"). Something's small like 1-2" is all I want for some bigger wheels/tires and to level it out. Best I have come up with after all the reading and searching here is to get 5100's (might as well get all 4 corners). Just not real sure yet on what to set the fronts to. Also when it comes to ride comfort, should I get a set of OME 885 springs to pair with. Still lots to figure out. Too many moving parts and options.....

    Get adjustable coilovers. It's money but the best way to get exactly the lift you want. It's the best performer too.

    Did you get front and back 5100's or jut the front? Did you use the original springs or replace them as well?

    Thanks!!!

    Think I have decided on 1 1/2" AAL, 5100's all around with the fronts set at .85 with eibachs.

    Basically getting the toytec package and going to see if they will set the fronts at .85 for me. Saw a couple trucks setup this way and the stance is perfect....

    The best, but most expensive, way would be adjustable coilovers from Icon, King, or Fox and a whole new leaf pack in the rear.

    Your next best option would be either bilstein 5100's all around with eibach lift springs and a 3 leaf progressive AAL or....

    OME shocks all the way around, 883 or 884 lift coils, and the 3 leaf AAL.

    You can save a little cash by going 5100's all around with the fronts set to 1.75" and a single 1.5 AAL.

    I'm going the same route as this guy but using Eibach coils instead of turning up the bilsteins as I have OR coils...
