    It's not 3 inches but I went with eibach's and tsb. Next will be 33 inch pizza cutters on 2010 trail teams edition fj cruiser wheels. The lift cost me 150 for springs up front and free springs out back.

    You can check out my gallery to see my 3" lift, I went with the OME 885 coils and OME 90000 sport shocks in front and N182 shocks with the All Pro leaf pack in the rear.
    You should check out Toytec, They have a good selection of Tacoma suspension.

    Pro comp makes a very affordable lift around 470 for new coils and shocks. Try to stay away from spacers. 470 is nice cause it leaves you money for new UCAs

    Soon....
    If you want to do the right thing that will leave you feeling the best, don't lift it.
    If you still want to lift it and want to do it the best way you can, get all Old Man Emu stuff, full leaf packs for the rear, and a new set of UCA's.
    If you want to do it the wrong way, get Pro Comp or similar spacer lift, block for the rear, and don't worry about the front end alignment.

    I just received my Eibachs to add to my Bilstein 5100's. Should hopefully have them installed next weekend after I powder coat the coils red :)
