    I purchased a gray 2013 Toyota Tacoma sport double cab about a week ago and I have wanted a Tacoma for years. I love how lifted Tacoma's look and I scheduled an appointment for a 3" spacer lift at Les Schwab for this wednesday, but I am going to cancel after reading numerous posts about how a spacer lift is not desireable.

    I do not plan to do a lot of off road 4x4 driving now, but I want to do it right the first time with a quality product. I like the look of the 6" inch lift, but I read how the 3" lift is better for performance, a more comfortable ride, and a better off road experience. The salesman said I would have to regear if I went with a 6" lift.

    I live near the Seattle area and I also would be interested in what business the members would recommend to install the lift.

    Did not want to be the new guy and ask a question probably asked several times, but I am a bit confused with all the different options.

    Thanks ahead of time

    Pretty much any of the high-end coilovers will do you well on the front. King, Icon, Fox, etc. You'll also want some UCAs like Light racing, Total Chaos, etc.
    For the rear, get a leaf pack and some good resivior shocks and call it a day.
