    I'm looking to lift my tacoma finally and was wondering where the best place would be to buy bilstein 5100s. Anybody know why some sights have them for cheaper? and if anybody had a nice brand of coil overs they would recommend?

    what exactly did they change on the 97-98 for rear suspension? i was researching what i wanted to do to the rear and i come across dakar leaf packs that sounded like what i was looking for. on wheelers it says the dakar pack will fit 98-04. i have stock 6 lug wheels though which i believe is the same as the 98s if that makes a diff.
    really appriciate the help guys
