    The man in brown stopped by today and I am ecstatic! I have been wanting to lift my truck for over a year, and I was finally able to get the parts, install will start next week if not this weekend.

    Thanks for all your help throughout my quest to find the right lift.

    Energy Suspension. tacoma steering rack get's sloppy on our 1st gen's sometimes, the $18 steering rack bushing kit fixes that issue.

    I actually didnt notice much improvement from the rack bushings, my steering rack must have other issues, but I have heard good things.
    I noticed my sway bar bushings are very worn, and I think replacing those will be a big help.

    If I were you I'd go 285 75 16, or a 33/12.50, the tires do look a bit small, and you could fit the 285's s why not! I'll be going bigger next time.
