    What is the best leveling setup for a stock 4x4 tacoma. I had the daystar 2.5 on my 98 but it was too much lift. How about the bilstien leveling struts? Pics of leveling kit only trucks.....

    i have the billys leveling strut and i love it, i'm trying to post some pics up. but anyway the only down fall i've seen with them is that when they are maxed out the the 2.5 you only have about an 1" or 2" down travel

    To just sit level thought they would only need to be set at about 1.5'' right?

    oh yeah to just level you would put them at 1.5". basically all you're doing is just compressing the coil a little. and if you are going to get them go through downsouth motorsports, thats who i got mine through and they are great with answer any other questions up may have.
