    Pics of toyota tacoma that has a 2.5 inch toytec spacer lift and 2 inch aal in the rear; with 32x11.50 tires. Im thinking about getting this lift for my truck. I just want to see what it will look like on a tacoma before I buy it. Also Im on a tight budget.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    I would get 33x12.5's. Once you get your 32's you'll wish you went bigger. Happens to everyone. If you are on a tight budget, bilstein 5100's really don't run that much more, especially for the ride quality. They are 100x better than a silly spacer.

    If you need pictures, scroll through posts, or even search. In 5 minutes you can look at 500000 pictures of tacomas.

    If I buy bilstein 5100's do I have to buy the aal for the rear. And buy all new coil springs. With the 2.5 inch lift 33's wont fit they will rub bad and bilstein 5100's only go up to 2.5.

    yes you still have to buy the AAL or new pack for the rear to get any lift there. the bilstein 5100s work with the stock coil springs or you can get new ones if you want.

    I would buy the 5100's. But its the labor that gets me they want $ 200 for labor. Does any one know that labor price is cheap or high? Cant do it myself dont have the tools.

    Buy the tools to do it! Saves money and gets you some new tools for later :D It's easy to pull the spring assembly out.....I paid the local shop to swap my struts out so I didn't have to use a coil compressor though

    Its easier to have a car lift. With a jack its dangerous cause the truck could fall of the jack

    pick up some jack stands along with the jack. jack the front or the rear up (whichever end you're working on), then throw the jack stands under the axle, frame, etc. and it's perfectly safe. you can chock the wheels for extra peace of mind. i've been working on my own vehicles like this for more than 10 years.

    $200 is pretty cheap for labor. You can also rent a coil compression tool from autozone or w/e and do it yourself. It's simple.

    If you're broke don't lift it. You will soon be wanting more. You pay to play in this game

    borrow the tools from him, you wont need many, just go one day and get all the sizes and when your done bring them back. the install is very simple and kind of common sence when you get to looking under the truck, i would just go and have somewhere compress the coils for you.
