    do all lift kits for regular 4wd tacos fit a 2wd?

    or are there special lift kits and spacer kits for 2wd?

    Depends on what type of lift you use. If you go with a spacer lift, then it will fit both 4wd and 2wd. I am not really sure about spindle lift for the 2wd, but im sure someone else will chime in on it.

    for mere looks, u can go spacer for cheap, but some will stiffen the ride. if u want a descent ride and cheap, look into 5100 shocks that are adjustable up to 2.5" (ur best bet), or for more u can go any brand of coilover that can go from 0-3 or 3.5" depending on manufacturer.

    u can go 4", but it requires the spindles and they arent cheap. RCD makes a 4.5" lift and fabtech/procomp 6" lifts which arent cheap either

    u can do 2.5" of lift w/ bilstein 5100s...all 4 shocks like $350-375. DSMS on here is about the cheapest u'll find. then get an AAL for the rear....1.5-2" for under $100.....or go the 4" in the front w/ spindles for over $1k and then lift for the rear to even it out.

    i think some on here have the eibach springs 1.6" lift AND 5100s set lower than 2.5" to get around 3" of lift. not sure about the price of the eibach though

    some others will give some othr ideas as well. take what u like and go for it. make sure when u get 33s that u take into account they will rub on 3" of lift and u'll have to trim inner fender, remove front flaps, and they will rub the UCAs unless u get different rims, spacers, or aftermarket UCAs
