    Okay well im new to all of this stuff, I have a 07 white double cab extended bed prerunner sr5, trd sport, and its 2wd. Now I've been wanting to get a lift for it and im really wanting a 4" lift and then put some 33" bfg's on it, and i know ive come to find that suspension lifts go from 1-3" and then start at 5". Is it possible to just get a 3" suspension lift then add a 1" body lift? If so, can some1 tell me where i can get all this stuff, and if i do put all this on my truck, do i need to change anything else? any help would be much appreciated!!!

    OME, Toytec, ICON, those are a few options for 3" lifts, and yes you can use a 1" BL but if you really want a 4" lift just get some Camburg Spindles. Best ride quality, and you can clear 35s if you ever opt for coilovers.


    Combos:
    Camburg Spindles + All Pro 3" leaf pack
    Coilovers + 2" Toytec AAL = 285/70R17 (32.7" tire)
    Bilstein 5100s @ 2.5 = 285/70R17 (32.7" tire)

    Look at spindles, they give you 4 inches of lift

    well like i know people are saying 3" lift and you can barely get away with 33"s and i think just that extra inch would make it look good, but where can i get a 1" body lift!? ive been trying to find one, but i cant :mad:

    For the front yes although you could add shocks set at 0 to give you a better ride. For the rear look at all pro 3 inch leaf packs, and shocks such as bilsteins

    either way you want it, you could get 5100's set them to 0.85 or 1.75 and add even more lift to the spindles.

    All you have to get:

    MaxTrac spindles: $550 + shipping
    Leaf Pack, (All Pro, Dakar if you want 3'' only in the back) $375 + shipping
    5150 rear shocks $110 each

    You can add bilstein 5100's to the front and set them at 0'' for the best ride or adjust them up to 0.85'', 1.75'', 2.5''

    Dude if you wanted to stay on a budget :confused: and still get a good lift without going in to the 2k range, you can buy the maxtrac spindles, 5100 or even 5150 for the front and rear and you can set the 5100 at like. 85 up gront to get more than four inches up gront and you can do a 3" leaf pack to lift the rear or a" add a leaf. This will run about 950-1150. It would all depend on what shocks you went with and if you got ann add a leaf or pack.

    You can also just get the spindles and a 1.5" add a leaf for the rear and leave your shocks that you have on now.
