    I just bought a 99 tacoma with some sort of alumium leveling kit on it, and i'm trying to find out how many inches of lift it is supposed to be, is there any way I can tell by the thickness of the alumium?

    By 99' Tacoma standards is it a pre runner ? TRD ? I guess it doesn't matter since you are already addressing the "Aluminum" spacer on top of your shock/coil tower, unless I'm missing something here I don't see why you couldn't measure the spacer's thickness & position to determine the amount of "lift" it has with it. I don't know if you off road but somewhere down the line , dump the spacer & get some Bilstien 5100 series shocks , they are ride-height adjustable ( up to 2.5" of lift for the front) the improvement in the ride you'll get is waaaaay better than the somewhat harsh ride some say they get with a spacer only type of lift. Hell, even if you don't off road do it anyway, you'll be alot happier with your truck.....:cool:

    It is a 99' Reg Cab, 4X4, 4 cylinder, 5 speed, there is no blocks in the back so the truck kind of sags. It right now has 15x10 blk steelies, with masteguard 32 11.50x 15
