    I am interested in installing a 2inch leveling kit on my 2003 tacoma 4x4. Does anyone know how complicated this process is? Iv never used a strut compressor but it doesnt sound very difficult.
    Also how large of a tire would this allow me to run?

    It's not too hard. But the spring compressors that you can rent are usually not very good and you have to be very careful with them.

    Yea just be careful when compressing them, the stock springs arent bad to compress but tougher after market ones are, also instead of buying coil spacers you should get a new set of springs. The Old Man Emu springs are about 175 a pair and will make your truck ride and handle better without wearing on other components like the spacers. A set of OME 881s should give you about 2 inches of lift.
