    What's up Toyota taco forum. I've found this site very helpful in my mods for my truck. I have a question and I know somebody on here has to have a good answer for me. I've called around many places here in AZ and haven't found a solution to what I would like to do to my Taco. I just put the 3inch Hell bent steel spacers upfront with is techinally a "leveling kit" but it did actually lift it a little higher which is what I wanted. BUT now I want to lower the back of the truck about an inch to give it the aggresive prerunner look. What is the cheapest easiest and fastest way to do this. I've been told many things but like I said from what I've seen in these forums there's a huge amount of knowledge!! HELP ME!! lol. Thanks all!!

    You could always add some sandbags in the bed. Lol
    You might be able to buy rear shackles for your leafs that will lower it an inch. Not sure.
    Also, if you can save up, get some spindles. Then you can ditch the spacer and your front will be how you want it.

    You can do that but you basically won't be able to put stuff in your bed. Nothing heavy at least. And you can't offroad hard.

    Ya I won't be offroading. More for looks to be honest. And I rarely carry stuff in the bed. So if I get a leaf taken out it will be noticable lower rght?

    Yes. I would think at least an inch. Let some more people chime in though. I don't have much experience with them other than taking them out. Lol
