    Who makes the best 3" suspension lift for 2004 DC TRD, and what does it consist of? Looking for best durability, light off road use.

    OK, thanks, always good to hear the experiences. I'm finding lots of lifts and options out there for the first gens.
    With a simple 3.0/2.5" do you also recommend:

    1. The 1.5 degree shims for the rear or play it by ear...see if you have a vibration?

    2. The front diff lowering spacers? Looks like they only lower the front, actually changing the angle to help U-joints?

    3. The manual hub conversion, to help with CV wear/noise?

    4. ...and how about one piece drive shaft, necessary or not. (I hate the "thunk" in my auto trans...and was thinking this would help along with new heavier duty springs?

    Asking ahead of time, because I would prefer to do everything at once.
