    Hey guys, new to the thread. Any suggestions on a leveling kit? Wanting to fit bigger tires but can't afford a whole suspension kit right now. Thanks.

    The cheapest way to improve your truck suspension is:

    This is the minimum in MY book!

    5100s all around
    885 EMU springs up front
    AAL kit for the rear
    1/4" spacer for the right front = Taco Lean TCO'd

    Gonna be around $1K if you need someone to install it for you.

    Anything less is BS - save your money drive your truck, install a proper suspension when you can afford it.

    What would happen if you put in 887s? Would it be too much?

    You'll be about 2" nose high and look like a bro. Unless you lift rear too

    I feel like all these post would get a nicer reply if each one wasn't from someone that only has 1-5 post on the forum.

    But ya @bobrown14 has it right, right here.

    Would 887's require adjustable uca's?

    Cool mud flaps,Snugtop Shell.
    You can put in a SMALL spacer to pick the front end up an 1" or so.That would not be the best way to do it on new $30,000. truck. Call one of the vendors on here and talk to them about it,I recommend Headstrong Off-road,Marie is very helpful and knowledgeable on Tacoma trucks.I would wait and save my money and do it right with new coils and shocks, just my opinion.

    I have the Icon progressive AALs on my truck... bad ass off road really feel a difference over stock bouncy bounce.

    Rear end digs in and tires get hooked up and off we go in a cloud of dust. First time off road with the new kit my wife's eyes were bugging and my dog was drooling a little but smiling at the same time so that's a good sign and a big cloud of dust! I mean the trail was completely nothing but dust all up into the trees ... didn't settle for like 10 minutes. That was cool as shit.
