    Ok I'm thinking about getting a three inch lift for my tacoma, but I'm not sure how much to lift the rear. I'm not sure if I should get 1.5 inches in the back or 2 inches in the back. I want it to be level or close to level but I don't know which would be best. Does anyone know which one will be the best. I have a 96 dlx extended cab.

    You have asked the most common question on this site and a quick search in the suspension or first en section section will yeild tons of results with pictures and all kind information
