    hey everyone its my first time having a truck!! my friends and cousins have trucks but no one with a tacoma so i'm the first out of my buddies and fam!!!! :[ My buddy is giving me 275/70/16 tires... i would like to lift my truck....i'm stuck between the bilstein 5100's and 3 inch Lift Kit with ES9000 Shocks...

    I would like to know which one is a better option or if there's other options that may be a bit cheap but good quality.... The es9000 came out to $1,100 its doable for me but i'd like to save my money if possible... The kit is about 475 and the insall is 420 and 120 for alignment.... also will the 275 fit with the bilstein if set to 2.5"....thanks!!

    It's for a 2011 double cab pre runner

    I have 265/75/16's. Bought them at stock height and they are the largest you can go at that height. 275/70/16's are smaller diameter than what I have but are wider so you MIGHT have an issue with the UCA. Mine are pretty damn close and I have the 5100's at 2.5". Honestly, I'd just stick with the 265/75/16's and not have to worry about it.

    For a grand I would get spindles, camburg makes them for a 4" lift.
