    I recently bought a tacoma and was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is coil spacers on it. If so, how can I tell what size they are? I also found a part that kind of looks like a bearing seal in the cab, anyone recognoze it?
    It has 3 inch body lift that I am wanting to remove. It has 285's on it now and I like the size but prefer to not have the truck sit up so high. I like the more filled up wheel well look. Anyone have suggestions for a small lift for slightly bigger tires? Pictures would be awesome.

    Actually it looks like two spacers.
    I spy a preload spacer and a top plate spacer.

    This is what stock looks like:

    Bingo.

    OP, remove the body lift and you should be in good shape.

    Is it bad to have two spacers? It looks like the passenger side spacer has a little bit of a buldge (included pic), is that ok?
    Also, if I remove the body lift will the 285/75/16 tires still fit or will I need to get new tires?

    Thanks for all of the help. You guys are awesome!!

    1 spacer sucks.
    2 spacers super sucks.

    The preload spacer looks like a daystar poly spacer which looks like a 1" spacer which would equate to 2" of lift. The top plate spacer is metal and also looks like 1" which would equate to 2" of lift and overal lift of 4".

    Stacking spacers can be done, but not like this. Typically its a preload spacer and like a 1/4" top plate spacer. Right now you've got more lift than your CV's can handle and it probably rides like complete shit. Since you're 4x4, your goal should be no more than 3" supsension lift.

    Personally I'd rip them both out and put on some 5100's if I was on a budget.

    I am on a pretty tight budget, truck kinda wiped me out. Should I just do one spacer for now? What is a good tire size for 1 spacer? How much lift will 5100 give me? I dont really care for a huge lift and would not want any larger of tires. Anything need to be done in the rear?

    5100s are adjustable so you can have them at 3 different levels with 2.5 being the highest. and with eibach springs itll give you 3"

    Will I be able to stay with 285/75/16 or will I need to get smaller tires?
