    tax returns coming and i want to lift my 08 tacoma. Im thinking 3" and im looking at toytec lifts. I know im going to AAL. Should i get replacement coils or the spacers? and if i get the coils does that mean i can add the spacers at a later date?

    ur fine with the 884 since u got an access cab, but i would get the 885 to be on the safe side, esp if ur gonna add any weight to the front of the truck
