    My friend has a 98' Tacoma 4x4 with a set of SAW's that are in need of a rebuild. I was wondering if he can run my old 18k< mile Bilstein 4600's and OR Springs while their being rebuilt? I'd put them together with a 1st gen top plate and call it a day. I know this would lift his fron a few inches. would this even work?

    That's what I thought. Well I was just tryin to help him out of a bind. He got the truck without consulting an expert. It's so beat down.... Needs lots of work.
