    Have a tacoma with a 3" spacer on it. Was wondering if anyone out there has put two spacers on. Once spacer on top of coil and one in the coil using a spring comp. I need some more clearance without spending a lot on another suspension set-up. Please give me your thoughts on doing this and if anyone has this setup now. Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Hold off on anymore lift until you can get a decent liftkit.

    We like to see pics. Post up some when you get a chance.

    Oooh! I'm thinking CV angles! For 6 inches you had better look at one of the better diff drop kits on the market that give you 5-6" drop and include all the hardware and replacement suspension parts. Then it will cost you for the fab work that needs to be done to cut out the crossmember and refit for the drop kit. Not a cheap option, but from what I'm finding out looking at a 2.5" lift, your CV joints will only take up to about 2.5" with out dropping the diff.

    Yeah..Save up and lift it right...You'll be putting alot of stress on the drive line to start stacking any sort of significant lift spacers.
