    Been researching lifts for the tacoma and three are the front rinners while one may ne great for the time being...
    Icon stage 1? Extended travel coilovers with new uca's
    Toytec ultimate lift- pretty straight forward...
    bilstein 5100s
    My first question is if i get the bilsteins and crank them to the 2.5in setting will i lose down travel, and do they only allow as much travel as stock shocks? (Im assuming they have internal bumpstops)
    The icon kit is a pretty premium and i was wondering if it wzs worth the extra two hundred bucks over the toytec and does it offer more travel than the toytec kit?
    Any and all feedback would be appreciated

    Most of this has been covered if you search icon stage 1 and just read around....but no worries! The icons are in a whole diff league compared to the other 2. For a couple hundred bucks its well worth it! The ext travel will offer another inch of down travel but you'll have to run uca's. You could save a few bucks and just get the regular travel and keep you stock ucas as long as you stay at the 2-2.5" setting their at, your alignement should be OK! The 5100s set at 2.5" will basically ride like a spacer lift due to the preload so unless your budget was super tight, I'd forget about that option!

    What are you thinking for the rear?

    For the rear im thinling dakar replacements or maybe just maybe aal's but for shocks im thinking 5160's back there unless there is something that could offer a better ride
