    I have an opportunity to get a nice suspension lift off of a 95 Tacoma. I was wondering if it would be compatable with my 01 Tacoma. Any ideas?

    Oh, I did do a search for lift compatability and I could not find the answer. :)

    The 95-2004 trucks have the same suspension setups.

    So, yes they are compatible.

    The only differences to look out for, are the engine & cab configuration. You might not end up with the amount of lift that you were planning on.

    For instance - If your truck is a regular cab and you buy coil springs or AAL's for a double cab..... the lift you'll get on your regular cab could be taller than what the lift is specified to give (on a double cab). Or the opposite end of the scale.

    IIRC, the 98's had a different rear spring length than the earlier ones....

    Good information.

    The lift is on a 4cyl access cab like mine.

    Basically its a front coil over kit on the front and in the back it has bilstein shocks.

    Thanks guys
