    with different springs you can go higher than 2.5, with stock springs 2.5 is the maximum.
    with the eibachs, and the 5100s on the lowest setting, you will get 1.6 inches of lift (2nd gen only) first gens get 2.5 from the eibachs.

    if you plan on getting a winch, id get a heavier spring. with a winch and bumper im sure the pro-comps would ride pretty nice!

    only good for 2.5 with stock springs.

    if your a badass and have a nice machine that can cut your spacers down to 1/4 inch then go for it.... id just buy new spacers though. they are cheap.

    Oh I don't have a machine but my cousin and uncle work at a machine shop so they might be able to do it. Thanks I didn't know that the stock spring is what maxed the strut out. I looked into those eibach and couldn't find tacoma ones just car racing ones. anyone have a sight for them.

    You probably wanna go with eibachs or ome 885. on bilstein 5100. You could get dakar leaf packs from the same place and save on shipping a little(maybe)

    there are most definitley cheaper options.

    5100s..$220.00.... http://toyteclifts.3dcartstores.com/Front-height-Adjustable-5100-Bilstein-Shocks_p_21.html

    eibachs..$164.... http://toyteclifts.3dcartstores.com/ToytecEibach-front-coil-lift-springs_p_14.html

    1/4 inch spacer x2..$46.. http://toyteclifts.3dcartstores.com/Front-Top-Plate-Spacer-One--14_p_351.html

    thats a great setup on the front at $430
    keep in mind the eibachs are a 620lb spring, you may want to go heavier with a winch and plate bumper, but ask toytec what they think.


    are you wanting to change the rear at all? if you already have add a leafs, but its bouncy, ask toytec about some 5100s for the back as well and they can help you with the size.

    Thanks Cody that helps a little. I have the ARB bumper now is that considered a plate bumper? To me it is lol. For the back I was thinking using the All Pro leaf pack for $400 and maybe some new shocks for a better ride anyway. It seems for just about $1000 I could have new front struts springs new rear leafs and shocks. That doesn't sound too bad to me. I am sure it will be a nicer ride too and help with tire rub.

    Your welcome dude. Yes that is a plate bumper :)
    If you have the money, that would be the best way to do it.

    Do what he said and shop around for a good deal. Some companies do package deals. And always make sure you ask if there is a tacomaworld discount!

    I have a arb bumper too and I do a lot of wheeling and I put the ome kit with the 886 coils and it rides nice. Ive Never had any problems. I highly recomend it. It defiantly doesn't go down from the front when I break . Post some pics of your truck :)

    no worries,

    honestly both of those kits will perform very well.
    i dont have experience with ome, but from everything i have read is they are both great.

    also, keep in mind that with 3 inches of lift, you MAY need new upper control arms to get the allignment into spec.

    okay now that we know I have stock upper control arms at what point will I knot if I need UCA's or not. Should I know now or will I not know until I put the other components on?

    the only way to know if you need new upper arms is when you take your truck to get it alligned, the shop either wont be able to allign it properly, or they will. if they cant get it into spec, then ucas may be needed.

    i dont remember which aspect of the allignment the uca effects though.

    Well I work at a dealership so I will be able to check first hand. So worst case is my truck won't be aligned properly until I get UCAs that's not so bad. Does anyone know if it will cause damage to anything or if it's just alignment issues I will have?
