    so ive been looking into getting a lift done on my 01 tacoma prerunner 2wd... however im still pretty confused on my research of lifting.

    ive seen body spacers..
    shock spacers
    lift kits etc.

    its more of understanding the benifits of each and the optimum use.. im not looking for a major lift, more like 3 inches or so, its finding the best performance for the price...

    thanks for being patient... i can lower a car, pick good offsets etc. but knowing a lift is out of my area of knowledge

    Go to RoughCountry.com, hope that helps...they make nice 2.5 suspension lifts which would be your best value esp. on a 2wd Pre(same as me)

    Get bilstein 5100's if you are going the cheap route, coilovers if you want something a bit more expensive.

    By no means am i any kind of expert but i will share some of my knowledge. Body lifts= shit.... does nothing for performance of your suspension... basicly a waste of money IMO. Shock spacers as you call it= Cheap mans lift.... you get what you pay for... makes your truck ride like shit.

    spacer lifts will give you a stiffer ride and It wont perform well offroad if you do any, and thats why its the cheapest route. But coil lifts and coilover's are your best route, for comfort and performance. But there are a little more exspensive.

    Rear def. go with AAL or full leaf pack. Check out Toyteclifts.com great products and prices! :)
