    I am a new tacoma owner. Got a 2001 double cab prerunner with 100k miles on it. I just put an all black bull guard on it ( yes I know its all for looks). I like the bull guard but I feel like it has lowered the front just a tad and it kinda bothers me. Is a front leveler suspension kit something I should look into? or is that for something else?

    Door sil protectors, rubber bed mat, trimmed mud flaps, WeatherTechs, diff breather relocate, locking gas cap, lighted 4x4 switch, stock radio AUX adapt, eibach with 5100@0 with toytech top plate combo (2.5") suspension lift, arm rests re-upholstered, relentless fab bed bars, hidden cb radio set up, debadged, Total Chaos UCAs
    that will take care if the droop. its good for looks, and thats about it. when you want a full, functional suspension lift, search toytec, eibach, OME, and bilstein.

    2" should level it up depending on what kind of shape your rear leaf springs are in

    Don't do a spacer kit on the Tacoma, it will destroy your ball joints! Trust me, been there done that.

    really? even though it's not four wheel and I won't be going off roading with it? it says it works fine with factory suspension. What is my best option then?

    Cha-ching..5100's with stock coils set at 2.5 and a aal for the rear..your looking at about 250-300 all said and done... a spacer lift is going to be around 150-175 so might as well spend the extra $100 or so and be done and safe

    edit: yes those you posted will work and are way better than the spacer lift

    I appreciate it, that site looks really good. I think I will go ahead and purchase from them in about a month.

    Correct me if my thinking is wrong, but I want to buy the Billsteins for just the front to start off. My main goal is to level the front out with the rear. Seems like if I bought for both the front and rear I would still have the same problem?

    If I wanted to add on in the future after deciding I want more lift overall on the whole truck, then I would buy rear Billstein shocks or add on leafs? Thanks for your guys help
