    hey guys I've been reading for a bit and want to do a small lift just to get a little bigger tires on my 02 tacoma reg cab 2.4.
    I was thinking about putting in some v6 coils with a 1.5" spacer lift just to get enough clearance to fit 235/75/15's or 30's.
    I dont offroad except to go out camping or through a field to my buds fire pit. Would this lift work? Thanks for the help ahead of time

    with a tire that size your gonna rub pretty good while turning. you need 3"
    + last i saw spacers and v6 coils is still only a 2" lift when you lift these trucks via springs without addressing the weak points it will break. save your money and get yourself a set of 3" lift spindles and an aal or shackles and call it a day.

    alright thanks I was planning on doing the spindle lift in the summer anyways, I appreciate the help. Do you know if I'd have to change my wheels because of the backspacing with the spindles or can you keep them stock?
