    Hey guys,

    I have searched this question on the forums for awhile now and can't really find the answer I am looking for.

    I am looking into getting a 6" lift for my 05' Taco, I currently am running Billy 5100's set @ .85 with 885 coils. Can I still use these with a 6" lift? If I can then that will give me time to save up some cash to purchase some nice colovers in the future. Any help or point in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.

    Buy spindles and drop your Billy's back to 0. The spindles will give u 4 inches and the 885's will give u 2 for a total of 6 inches. Your front will feel better because u will gain .85 inches of travel in your shocks and your angles will be better on your alignment. Get allpro rear leafs and ur done!!!

    This is the set up I am going to be purchasing in a couple weeks!!!

    What company are your going with for spindles? And if I go that route, won't I be giving up my 4x4 unless I instal extended axles?

    I guess I should research some more. I do do some wheeling up here in the White Mountains so quality counts as well as looks, because looking cool is very important. Thank you all for your imputs. I look forward to hearing some more.
