    I know, I know....SEARCH!, but i cannot find a thred that will answer my questions. But if you know some and could link me to them that would be great! After how many inches of lift does the tacomas steering, diff, and transfer case and drive shaft get all out of wack? what aree the common remedies for the problems that happen when lifting? what lift will clear 32 or 33 with enough room that there is no rubbing? Again sorry for the long post, and the stupid questions. any help would be great!

    5100's at 2.5 will fit 33's "with some trimming"
    you can lift up until 3" without any issues

    32's will fit perfect no triming!
    I got mine and they rub ever soo slightly if the wheels cranked all the way and you hit a small bumb like a curb or w/e.

    Once you throw a lift in her she'll be mint!!

    Im gonna lift mine too aswell!

    do not lift it more than 3 inches and you should be fine....
    you can also try a diff drop kits if your cv angles are to messed up
    i got 2.5 on my 5100's and its fine

    15x10 will look retarded, go 15x8 with a 4" BS and you'll get about 1/2" of tread sticking out, plus another 1/2" of sidewall for a total of about 1" outside the flares. If you have an '01 or greater, you might need a slightly more aggressive BS since those flares are fairly wide.

    3" lift Up front(Donahoe Racing ext. travel coil overs, Camburg UCA's), 1.5-2" lift in the back(aal and some billy 10" stroke short bodies), Bushwhacker Cut-Out fender flairs, 16"x10" Procomp Street locks, and 305/70 Procomp X-Terrains.
    If you are going 3.5" with no drop down bracket you will need an aftermarket uca to get your wheel alignment back.
