    bone stock for now
    I want to level the front of my taco out to give it a better stance. I know with toyotas ifs you can crank the front end up. I really don't want to do a lift with springs and dont have the cash to shell out on a good coil over lift. But i would like to put slightly bigger than stock 265/65/17's on. Anybody done this and know how big of tires i can go to with out it rubbin like hell. By the way I love my taco. And any suggestions on exhausts magnaflow, flows, or whatever is gonna give her some more throaty tone???

    5100's all around - fronts at 1.75", 265/70/17 Bridgestone Revo 2, HID headlights and fog lights, factory skid plate, ss exhaust tip, tube steps, Access roll-up tonneau cover, Redline hood struts, 6 D-rings, seat MagLite, LED dome, fumoto oil drain, DTRL, fog light anytime, Kenwood/Clarion speakers, Pop-N-Lock 5300, LED bed lights and a few other things...
    The front ends are not adjustable. You have to add Bilstein 5100 shocks and you can adjust to .85, 1.75 or 2.5". That will level it out (eliminate the rake).

    You can save money and just put bigger tires on the front. That would level it!

    Be careful how you word this....

    If you have 4WD, you DO NOT want to put bigger tires on the front only. Taller tires (larger diameter) will have a longer rolling distance than the rear wheels. You can do wider tires - but you gotta keep the diameter the same front to back.

    Not sure why your rear is higher than the front unless you got the TSB done.

    Try putting about 200lbs of weight in the bed for a few weeks and see if the rear-end settles down for you.

    Mine is this way too without TSB. Over 36k so no one will do TSB. The front wheel wells are 36 on drvr side, 36.5 on pass side & both rears are are 38.25. This is straight from ground to body line thru axle. I will be doing something at some point to lift/level. Still pondering. Already have TRD bilsteins, Toytec 1.5 tsb AALs, longer ubolts, toytec drvr side leveling spacer & 1.5 top plate spacers. Might be going with toytec 3/4 inch top plate spacer kit instead but not sure that'll level it enough from front to rear. I need the AALs out back & might add timbrens depending on how the aals help out. If I go with AALs then it's gonna still have rake unless I go at least 2" in front. May be going with 5100s instead & just selling the lo mileage 08 TRDs.

    Sorry for not adding the :D as I was just kidding. He wants to save money but still get a lift, tires and an exhaust that sounds "throaty".

    Was joking that he could save money and get half his tires and half his lift :)
