Is This a Good Setup?

    I have a 2006 Tacoma Double Cab PreRunner that I am wanting to lift about 1 or 2 inches. This lift will be just for looks since I rarely go off-road. I am also trying to keep the lift low enough so I won't need new UCA's (mine are stock).

    This is what I have in mind:

    1. Eibach 1.6 lift coil springs paired with Bilstein 5100's set at 0.
    2. Bilstein 5100's for the rear with a Toytec 1.5 inch add a leaf. I do not
    have the TSB rear springs. Is the Toytec brand good, or is there a
    better choice available?

    I would like the truck to ride close to what it is now, but a little more firm is fine. I would like the truck to be level at the least, but the factory PreRunner rake/stance is good as well.

    I would like to start ordering the parts soon. I will be doing the install myself, so I want to keep it as simple as possible. Please let me know what you think about going with this setup.

    That sounds like a good set-up, The toytec AAL is a good choice.
    And with that set-up you will be close to stock rake. And If you want to, you can go up to 2" lift up front and still be ok as far as ride and UCA's go.
