    I've seen some builds with 3 in. readylifts/fatbob's on some of the 4-cyl/5-lug, 2nd gen taco's and i plan to do the same with mine. I would like to upgrade my shocks and struts during the installation but still a newb with suspension. My quiestion is what is the Bilstein part # for the front struts for 5-lug & rear shocks for 6-lug? Also, what are other recommendations are there for the struts and shocks without spending too much? I am basically going for show and I'm defnitely not down with the stock look lol.

    If you're just going for show you really do not need to upgrade the front suspension after the lift

    Yea i've read on some other threads that they left the front suspension alone and just upgraded the rear suspension with the lift's installed. If I remember correctly some members ordered and installed the FB rear shocks along with the Readylift to better the ride.
    I've ordered the the readylifts and just shipped today, I think I'll go ahead and find upgraded suspension just for the rear. Want to keep that smooth ride yah know.
    Thanks for all the responses so far guys, you've been a lot of help!

    my one question is did you also upgrade the coils? i have just crossed the 175,000 km mark and am debating on weather or not i need to do it. i figure i may as well since ill have the suspension already apart
