    Don't run spacers in the front. Harsh ride and you run the risk of snapping a coilover on a pothole when the shock bottoms out before the suspension hits the bumpstops.

    It's happened to folks on this site. Do it right and go with some aftermarket adjustable coilovers.

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    There are people who run spacers and never had a problem. If you are on a budget I would check around for some 5100's made by Bilstein or save up for some coil spring lift by ToyTec/OME.

    you can do whatever you want.. thats what i did cause im on a budget.. i got the rear leaf springs done by Toyota TSB... (free) adds about and inch.. and i got the 5100's set @ 2.5 up front.. stock rims and tires. i installed myself on ALL-PRO mod day.. cost me $200 total.. shazam!

    not much.. but with bigger tires (coming soon) and another leaf in the back and i should be alright.. then when i have the $ im definatly going with some real coilovers or some spindles.. really want the 4" out of the spindles.. and the look with the prerunner!

    ^ Wheeler's is an excellent vendor that's always taken care of the Tacoma community. They won't steer you wrong.


    I figured I'd throw in the endorsement since vtman 908 is new and probably unfamiliar with who's treated us right over the years. :)
