    Bought a standard 2WD Tacoma with the SR5 package. Had an 05 Pre-runner 2WD and really liked riding up higher.

    Bought the standard because I wanted the auto trans, and I don't do any off road driving. The question is how do I cheaply raise the 09 to the same height that I had with the Pre-runner?

    Don't think it gets much cheaper than a spacer lift. Thats what I did, saves money for down the road when I can afford a 6".

    what type of spacer lift? Are there any that can be installed by me vs. having to go to a mechanic, get a realignment etc? I remember back in the day, I was able to actually put a spacer between the coils in the coil springs and lift it that way, and a shackle for leaf spring. What about air shocks in the rear for a slight lift.
