    so for now since im on a budget im going to do a 3 inch suspension instead of the 6 inch. i know rough country sells one. Price is 250. is this a good setup? i plan in doing 15 inch rims on 33 inch mudders. Will the 15 inch rim cause any probs? any other inexpensive suspension setups?? thanks guys. also if you have pics of one (2008 tacoma access cab sport) please post, or other new models. thanks

    Are you planning on off roading your truck at all?? Cause that spacer lift is not the way to go if you are. Look into the Bilstein 5100's. A little more money...but way worth it.

    IIRC- 15" rims are too small...16" is the minimum.
    33's will require you do some trimming, just so you know.

    I am looking to do about a 2 inch lift and will not be doing any off roading. My truck is an everyday driver so the ride will need to be good. What are my options?

    15s wont clear your calipers. And depending on what type of spacers you are looking at. Some spacers require you to compress the spring adding preload. Real shitty ride. Procomp and Readylift leveling kits are spacers that go on top of the shock. This type does not add preload and your truck will ride and handle the same as stock just sit 2.25" higher in the front. They are realiable and tough. 4wheelparts.com sells then for around $200. Procomp/ready lift also makes these leveling spacers for 3/4t trucks out of the same material so it is tough enough for our little trucks.

    That wont mess with ride quality. The spacer lift that toytec sells goes on top of the coil adding preload. This style goes on top of the entire assembly maintaining your factory ride. Perfect for light offroading and for a dd

    15" rims wont fit. the calipers are too big. The spacers i was talking about were the lift spacers. there is no way to get 15s on your truck. Also 33s will rub pretty bad 265/75-16s are 32"x10.5x16

    For sure...a 16 stock barely clears them...got 5100s...they are not much more and will make a world of a difference...unless you just want it for show and like to bounce all over the place.

    the spacers that go on top of the shock wont bounce him because it does not add preload. only the spacers that go in between the spring and the top place add preload for lift. Rough country lift wont add preload so no bouncing all over the place

    i almost went with the bilies but talking to the offroad shop they told me billies arent that good either. When you set them at 2 or 2.5 you sacrifice down travel so the spacers are better for a cheap practical lift without sacrificing down travel.

    On my tundra they were just set enough to fix the rake...but compared to the stock shocks they were much better...I am saving up for Fox's 2.0 myself...I would love to have LT but it would likely be too much suspension for me and it's about double or triple the price of a midtravel...I don't plan on jumping my truck...just trails and some crawling. Are you in socal now? I just want to do it right the first time...either way he goes..as long as he is happy with it that is all that that matters
