    Before trash talking happens i have plans on doing a sas to my tacoma in hte future just not yet!

    im wanting to lift my 2004 tacoma i want 5 inches of lift so that i can fit 35s. so i was thinking 3 inch lift with a 2 inch body anyone have any thoughts on what the turn out would be like?


    i don't want to spend a hole lot of money on it because of plans on SAS eventually. so what would the cheapest way to reach 5 inches of lift be? thanks

    Lift spindles (not sure if they're made for the 95-04 pre runners) will give you 2.5-3'' and Coilovers will give you up to 3''.

    Go 3" lift and tub the firewall. 35s can be cleaned with 3"of lift. Some people have even cleared 37s on 3" with a lot of tubbing

    go coilovers for sure (or spindles if they make them). Eibachs usually give you a full 3" and I've read some ext. cabs get 3.25" with these coils. Im a double cab and I got 3.25" at first but then It settled to right at 3"

    If you do the BL dont go any higher than 1".

    see ive thought of that to doing a 3 inch and then doing a 1 inch body just so it would make the firewall tubing alittle easier

    There you go!
    From my brief reading on lift spindles, I beleive you can get 3" of lift out of the spindles and then you can add some Coilovers to give another 2" for a total of 5" lift. I could be wrong, but with longer spindles it's not necessarily stacking lifts.
