    HOPEFULLY THIS WILL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS..

    OKAY 2 TYPES OF LIFTS

    1ST LIFT IS A BODY LIFT.. A BODY LIFT DOES EXACTLY THAT IT LIFTS YOUR BODY OFF THE FRAME.. I PERSONALLY WOULDNT GO ANYTHING OVER 3" YOU CAN FIND THEM LARGER BUT NOT RECOMMENDED!!! ALOT OF COMPANIES SAY NOT TO LIFT YOUR BODY IN CONJUNCTION WITH A SUSPENSION LIFT. OKAY JUST PUT IT IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND AND SOAK ON THAT.

    2ND LIFT IS A SUSPENSION LIFT.. AND WELL ONCE AGAIN IT IS EXACTLY THAT EITHER A SPACER LIFT WHICH WILL USE YOUR STOCK SUSPENSION AND ADD SPACERS TO YOUR FRONT AND A BLOCK OR AN ADD A LEAF IN THE REAR. OR THERE IS A COILOVER FOR THE FRONT AND YOU CAN GO WITH AN ADD A LEAF IN THE REAR OR A BLOCK OR BOTH DEPENDING ON THE SITUATION YOU HAVE WITH IT BEING LEVEL.

    THERE ARE A COUPLE OF CHEAPER WAYS THAT ARE CALLED READY LIFT THEY ARE CHEAP AND ALLOW YOU TO DRIVE WITH LARGER TIRES!

    YOU CAN DO SOME SHOPPING AROUND ON THE INTERNET USUALLY CHEAPER THAN YOUR LOCAL STORE.. BUT I WOULD RECOMEND YOU USE YOUR LOCAL OFF ROAD STORE FOR INSTALL OR ENSURE YOU HAVE A COMPITENT FRIEND WHO ACTUALLY KNOWS ABOUT SUSPENSION! NOT ONE THAT JUST SAYS HE KNOWS HOW TO DO SUSPENSION WORK. EBAY IS A GREAT PLACE TO START.

    Top Gun Customz ON EBAY HAVE ALOT OF DIFFERENT OPTIONS AND THEY ARE PRETTY HELPFUL ACTUALLY.. JUST SEARCH PRO COMP TACOMA OR FABTECH TACOMA. AND HOPEFULLY THIS HELPED SOME PEOPLE OUT.. ITS KINDA DUMBED DOWN BUT HEY WHAT THE HELL RIGHT.
