    Besides Toytec, who else make a coilover kit for tacomas? Wheres the best value at?

    I'm wanting a proper 3 inch lift thats gonna ride decent, perform offroad and not kill my front end. Would coilovers and a set of UCA's be my best bet? And of course maybe some billie 5100's in the back with a 1.5 inch block.

    My first Toyota and any help is appreciated.

    there are tons of CO's out there. Racerunner/sway-a-way, IVD/Donahoe, Walker Evans, Fox, Camburg. just look around. I'd say that a set of CO's and some UCAs are going to give you the best results for the stock-3" height.
