    Removed the Mud Flaps, Rock Deflectors and Head Rest. Limo Tint, I had 3" Toytec Lift, Procomp Nitrogen ES6000 shocks and Struts. AllPro UCA, AFE Pro Dry drop in filter, WeatherTecs. Now I have LR UCA's, Maxtrac Spindles, Eibach's, 5100's up front, Expos, 5160 for the rear, U Bolt Flip Kit, and Extended Brake lines.
    Im sick of my 3" Spacer lift.

    Let me specify:
    I have an 09 PreRunner with 265/75R 16, non TSB Tacoma and the front end looks lower than the rear. So...

    Now the question is:
    Would my existing Tires/Rims look too small with a 6" lift?
    or
    Should I go with a 4" Camburg lift?

    I know I should go jack the truck up and see how it looks with an extra 1" and 3" of lift. But I want to hear your 2 cents.

    Any pics?

    Thanks

    Can't go wrong with the spindles. Won't mess with any of your geometry, and won't lower your ground clearance like the db.

    if i had a prerunner thats the route i would go besides LT, and if you want the extra 2" then just get some billies or other coilover for the extra height you want

    265/75 would look horrible with a 6" lift.

    Go with spindles and 285s.

    nahhh im saying spindles and coilovers, that is fine, a lot of people do that

    the reason its okay to use a spindle and coilover is because a spindle maintains stock geometry

    I hated the 265's with a 3in nevermind a 6in.I m thinking about doing a 6 in and was woundering how 285s would look with that.

    Yeah I wish I didnt rush into a spacer lift.
    After the spacer and the UCA I could have done it right and just gotten the Camburg Spindles. Oh well.

    Huh???? Jack stand lift. How much for that? :eek: What brand are they? Will my tires rub? :D

    I dun know I kinda like the 6" with the 31's but I may go with the Camburg's. Just the hole geometry stuff makes more sense. Even with my UCA my tires are wearing out fast. Yes I have had the alignment triple checked.

    Well thanks guys.

    Keep the feed back coming thou.

    ^ Yes I believe I will take Kink's recommendation. Now I wish SDHQ would repeat their Black Friday Sale. It was like $150 off = $845. and less what ever I can get for the spacers. So i can afford this.

    Thanks everyone.

    Oh, any leads or if anyone wants to part with their spindle, please let me know.

    Wait, why do I need the Bilsteins set to 1.75 or 2.5? Is it to make it leveled or to give it some more height?
    :confused:

    Well if you set them at 1.75 then you will have 5.75 inches of lift up front,just to get more height, but with 265's I would set them at .85 for 4.85" of lift up front
