    I have a 99 prerunner and I'm wanting to add some height to it. I want to be able to fit 33's and have it higher in the front, so it has a somewhat noticeable lean. Maybe like 4 (front) and 3 (rear)? Im trying to find this for a pretty good price and that wont ride too bad. I wont be doing much off roading at all. What do I do??:confused:

    I recommend Old Man Emu. Check out Downsouth Motorsports or Wheelers Off-Road. They are both very knowledgeable companies Maybe run nitrochargers w/881's and a trim packer in the front and a aal in the rear

    I just don't want to spend too much but I don't want it to be total crap. I'm trying to get the tires and lift at the same time.

    The ride will go to shit even on pavement... He should go with 5100s with OME coils.

    Yes, that's why you shouldn't get them. Stay far far away from them. If you are a budget, go with 5100s set them at 2.5" they will do the job :)

    Hard to get excited about 5100's and spending alot on a lift for a prerunner. Not many folks like the spacers tho.

    Im not the one to ask on how to's admittedly.

    33's with 4 cyl? Gonna be an issue? Something to look at. Just checkin yo.

    well i mentioned spacer lift on the grounds of what i highlighted on the OP

    it would be the cheapest route.

    if not then, id concur with krimson on the 5100's through Downsouth Motorsports or Wheelers Off-Road

    i currently have 5100's with stock sport coils set at 2.5 and they have been good for me so far through trail runs and in the desert.

    The 5100's are great but they only provide 2.5". I want it a little higher than that and idt that will be able to fit 33s

    A local guy offered to provide a 3" susp lift, install, alignment all for 500
