    3 inch suspension lift, night shades corner and blinkers projector headlights with halos and 3 led's 18 inch kmc xd rockstar wheels,275/65/18 kelly safari tsr's, bush whacker fender flares 7 inch touch screen, 2 kenwood 12's, Magnaflow exaust single in dual out,
    Ok guys help me out here I ran over a tire on the interstate and it blew my front strut, busted my rim and blew my tire out. I am gettin $1,176 back from the guys insurance and im curious as to what i need to get

    My new front rim will be 311.00+tax
    My new bush whacker fender flare will be about $200+ shipping and tax
    and i have a tire that will be going on that matches the tred depth of my others so i dont have to buy a new tire until i get a new set.

    so that leaves me about $600 or so from the check to spend on suspension. I can also throw a couple hundred on there to help that.
    I need new leaf springs, and i would prefer to put a set of shackles in the back also, new rear shocks, and new front struts and coils. i will be upgrading to a 275-70-18" tire when i get new rubber which by the tire calculator on here equates to a 33.16" tall x 10.83" wide.

    I was looking at the bilstein 5100's but it only allowes 2.5" of lift and I am wondering if I would rub bad. Now if I get the bilstiens and some ome medium rate coils would that give me the extra clearance to run the larger tires?
    DSM has the bilstiend 5100 series struts with 5125 series rear shocks for $309.99 and that would sound good if I can clear my tires.

    What leaf spring set can i get for a decent price? I would like to get 3 to 3.5" of lift from the leaf springs and shackles. So i was figuring a 1.5" lift pack and a 2" shackle?

    Please help me out some. Ive read alot and aint sure exactly what i should get.

    Hmmmm...I think you'd rub like hell with the Billys set at 2.5. I'd get a 2" Shackle lift from Toytec for the rear

    holy shit aren't all 4 flares like 400 they are charging you 200.00 bucks for just one! other than that light force makes some badass aux lighting products. if i had some extra money to blow it would go to them or to some brighter reverse lights integrated in some non cheesy way which i haven't thought of yet. or how about an arb bumper or a nice rear bumper with a tire swing idk just throwing things out there that i want to do to my truck. or you could just put all the money into the suspension and go with a quality setup like icon or ome.

    yea dude I think that even with a full 3" you'd rub...but nothing a little trimming can't fix...Its totally possible to run the tires with that lift...like I said just be prepared to trim like crazy :)

    I was hoping the medium rate coils would give me the extra lift I would need

    I would just get armor but my suspension is shot. And I'm runnin around on the spare I've got 4 kc lights pointed to the front and 4 square lights pointed backwards. And the flare is so expensive because they are sold in pairs and I only need one so its special order

    bush wacker flares look killer and i really want a set badly, but that just sounds wrong:confused: icon,king,fox ome, fabtec for the 6inch. they all make really nice setups. that will probably last longer than your frame lol. i want armor bad myself but i need the lift first i'm going the ome route then outfitting the truck with the rest of their products from arb.

    i have heard good things about the 5100's on tacomas plus they are cheap. if i'm not wrong here eibach springs and 5100's make for a pretty good combo, and for the leaf springs i would look into ome if you are looking to armor up in the future.

    The bush whackers are 400 a set or 200 a pair. But if you special order one the fee makes that one flair 200 bucks and ive only got about 800 to spend

    You could always check out wheelers offroad, the got deaver and alcan springs on their. I know alcan would do $250 a spring pack for a 6" lift
