    Alright...heres where im at...I got the money to get a lift. ive been looking around and found this:
    2.5" Kit w/Front Spacers & rear ToyTec AALs

    I got an '01 4x4 taco with the trd suspension.

    You can copy and paste it to google to find it.
    I know some stuff about lifts but not enough to know if im gettin a good buy or if im gettin everything i need. so i got some questions:

    1. Is this a good product?
    2. What rear shocks will i need?
    3. Anyone know anything better for about the same money?

    Thanks!

    fabtek makes a 3-3.5" kit for 2wd or 4wd replacing springs front and rear shocks and it adds a leaf in the rear for less than 700 with basic shocks a little over a 1000 for dirt logics

    yea but see i got some buddies that know how to install it so im hoping to get some pity work out of them haha.

    ive been thinking spacers but everyone tells me theyre garbage. i mean i got offroading and stuff but my buddy has spacers on his truck and hes had them on for over a year and got them used and has had no trouble so im not really sure what to do.

    Honestly, after a TON of research, I wouldn't recommend daystar or any kind of spacer. Because you will eventually wear out your front suspension and end up wasting money and get mad how your truck rides. Save up and do it right the first time. Check out my build. I'm glad I saved up a little more money. Hope this helps.
