    Pro comp 6" lift, afe intake, flowmaster duel exhaust, dick cepek 35" mt's, and black XD rims
    So my mechanic says that the 99 trd tacoma has a unibody suspension.

    However I was looking into buying a toytec lift.

    I messaged the company and told them of the swaying problem

    They replyed with a message telling me that no tacoma has a unibody

    Suspension. And there lifts wouldn't effect my vechical.

    I just want a sure answer as to what is going on.

    If any one has had the same problem let me know

    all tacomas have frames, not a unibody design. the only vehicle i can think of that poeple lift and are unibody are cherokees.

    So what is your problem? You say your truck is swaying? I think you may need new shocks and probably need to replace the sway bar bushings as well. BTW, your mechanic is an ass for telling you your truck is a unibody.
