    I have a 2001 PreRunner and want to lift it. I have no idea what kind of kit to get. I also would like to know how high is too high, since I drive it on the road every day. Thanks.

    I think most here go with 3" for more practical daily driving. Spacers would be cheap route but harsh ride. Coilovers offers a great ride and are adjustable, but costly. AAL for the rear or blocks. Another cheap option are adjustable front shocks to level the truck out. Good luck..

    So the Bilstein 5100's for the front and AAL on the rear is the best bet? Thanks yall.

    Pricier than spacers and better for your truck but probably not as good as those 1000-1500.00 kits, best bang for buck unless doing hardcore offroading on regular basis where maximum flexing and clearance are necessary.........IMO.

    Yea I just installed bilstien 5100s front and rear, aal in the rear, wheel spacers, and a front diff drop kit. Ordered them from wheelers offroad. Real helpful people when I called. I love the new height of my truck. Taller would be cool, but its perfect the way it is. Really noticeable when u get in and out of it.

    Check my build for some pictures of it
