    Still trying to determine a reasonable way to get a bit more travel from probably soft springs (probably don't need more umph, just sit higher for more travel (?). Here are a couple of front lifts which sound like they might work, instead of replacing springs anad/or shocks. http://www.suspensionconnection.com/...on/52901T.html The front lift kit is about $95 and I can do it myself (I think), vs $300+ and a mechanic for the above recommendations.

    Also, Toytec has the same functional item, but in aluminum

    I'd appreciate any info. And my understanding is that these are simple to replace and don't involve spring compression, right?

    It all depends on your budget you can go with some nice coil overs like sway away, kings, fox, icon and if your on a budget I'd say go with toytec people on here have them and they like it but like I said it really depends on your budget
