Can quick lift struts damage suspension components?

    I am rebuilding the front suspension on my 2002 sr5 v6 4wd tacoma.

    I know that spacer lifts can, and have, caused major suspension damage.

    When i rebuild the suspension i intend to install "Rancho 9000xl quick lift struts.

    My concern is that they might change the suspension geometry and cause more damage in the future.

    If ANYONE has any experience with quick lifts i would love to hear from you.

    Keep in mind this is my daily driver, so long term dependability is my ultimate goal.
    Will stock suspension parts work correctly with quick lift struts?
    Do i also need to install lower control arms or ucas designed to work with lift to reduce possible damage?

    Also if anyone knows of a suspension shop that specializes in 1st gen tacomas i would appreciate their contact info.

    Thank you.

    Nope not many lifts around here.

    But really you'll be fine. Stay under 3 inches and things won't wear out to much faster.

    Not sure if you're still in the market, but I've had the QuickLift kit in my DCSB for a year and a half and almost 30k miles. No issues with it at all so far and better manners than my OEM Bilsteins on and off road. I'm not terribly rough on my truck as it's a DD for me, but it's seen a lot of trail use and all is well.

    Im not sure what the stock strut specs are but if the extended measurement is longer than thats where the lift is coming from.
