    I was looking at coil overs from king and fox. Whick one do you guys prefer? also i currently have a 3in coil spacer lift in the front and i really like how the truck looks. Do you guys know if fox or king will give me that 3in lift also?

    3'' lifts look bad ass, lifting the kings higher than what they should be can be really bad i know first hand, you strain the internals and they will go out quicker they are not meant to be used as a lift factor farther then recommended i have mine at 2-2.5" lift which is fine with me and sits good.

    i have the fox 2.0's at 2.5" of lift. anything higher will give you a very bad/stiff ride.

    my budget is about 1500. I just want a better set up than stock, I want eather fox or king coilovers and i want a 3in lift. I really have no clue how to do that besides the coil spacers i have now.

    call sonny at downsouthmotorsports and tell him what you want. either one is the best coilover you can buy, both will get you 3" lift. I like Kings and would never buy anything else. tell sonny that you are a member of tacomaworld and you will get a discount.
