    What brand of coil spacer did you find and what price? What model Tacoma do you have? The reason I ask these questions is to try and help you get the best possible outcome with your lift. For the money coil spacers are an inexpensive way to go but they lack the performance both on and off road that a replacement strut can offer. For example a coil spacer kit for the front along with a rear add-a-leaf and shocks will run about $250.00 to $300.00, while a complete set of Bilstein 5100's is $269.00- The difference is the coil spacer kit utilizes the stock struts and shocks which are known to be soft and tend to bottom out. On the other hand the Bilstien leveling kit is specifically valved and nitrogen charged for the Tacoma giving you a more performance ride all around! I have them on my truck and love them!
