    have you considered a spindle lift up front for your prerunner?

    or check out toytec, better than skyjacker all day longhttp://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=64&Itemid=72

    .
    There's opinions back and forth about this company, pump 'skyjacker' into the search function and spend some time reading. I don't have this setup because i read negative things about this company. Old Man Emu (OME), Eibach springs, Bilstien 5100 series shocks, Dakar leafs, Down South Motor Sports (DSM), Wheeler's (who I used), seem to be pretty popular on this site.

    I have it. It is great. Wheel the piss out of it and cruise the highway with the best of them.


    p.s.... The front coilovers are made by FOX.


    With a pre-runner, I would look at spindles though.

    Spindles= 4" of lift up front with stock shocks and maintain stock geometry= easier alignment. But you need extended front brake lines, a leaf pack out back to equal it out and then longer rear shocks.

    No personal experience with Skyjacker but I know some people on here have it and like it. Ive never really heard any complaints.

    Your decision should be based on how much you want to wheel, what type of wheeling you do, or if its just for looks.
