    Ive seen tacomas on cardomain with 9" of suspension lift. How is that accomplished? :confused:

    I been thinkin about stacking a 6" pro comp, 3" revtek and possibly a 3" body running 38" tires. Ive been told it cant be done or it will create severe stress on the CV joints or the ball joints. But its strictly for show and will be an everyday driver through town so it wouldnt hurt the angles or stress the ball joints too severe if i get bigger UCAs right?

    Who would be willing to or know of someone to install this?

    Most folks have gone for a 6 inch lift with a 3 inch body lift to get to 9 inches. I do not think your ball joints would survive adding the 3 inch Revtek spacer on top if the 6 inch drop bracket kit.

    Your prerunner does have the option of lifting with spindles. They will give you 4 inches, then you can add coilovers for an additional 3-3.5 inches.

    Trying to stack suspension lifts is going to give you issues....and on an 05- I'd be amazed to see you clear 38's...even with all that lift. I want photos when you are done!!

    6" lift plus 35's get you 8" and it's as close to 9" as I'd feel safe going...

    Might as well go SAS if you want to be that high. Unless its a street queen... in which case you could get a 4" Spindle, 3" coilover and 3" body lift.

    If the drop bracket in the 6" lift kit keeps your front geometry close to stock then you probably could add coilovers for another 3" inches. The 3" body lift won't affect your suspension, it is just putting spacers between the body and the frame. I think it would be kinda "poseur" being that it's a PreRunner but it would definitely be high!
