    Hello, i plan to buy a tacoma soon and wish to lift it a little (about 2 inches). I am getting a 4 door trd. Since it comes with Bilstein shocks I don't want to remove them to put another suspension on. Would Bilstein 5100 leveling struts and add a leaf look good? If there are any pictures can i see?

    If you get the 2" AAL's from ToyTec it will raise it 2 inches. You will also want to get the shock extenders if you do not replace the rear shocks.
