    If you have a 4x2 I would suggest getting Camburg Spindles. Those spindles will put you at a 4" lift and it won't sacrifice ride quality.

    Other than that, you can't really add more lift...

    You must be running a 2.5" lift, not a 3". A simple coilover can give you a little more lift if you like.

    You should get some pics up so we can better understand what you have going on.

    Yes definitely get some pictures up. Would help to know exactly what your running so you can be best advised. I would say add the Toytec Coilover kit for the 5100's. Cheaper than spindles. Do you have a lift in the rear also?

    Oh yea welcome to TW!
