    Weathertech front & rear mats, rear suspension TSB, Toytec AAL for TSB, Hi-Lift Jack, Bilstein 5100 & Toytec Adjustable coilovers, Built Right UCAs, KMC XD 795 Hoss Wheels, Definity Dakota MTs 285/75R16, Leer XR, Thule Tracker II & Thule MOAB basket
    I had Toytec Bilstein coilovers & Lightracing UCAs installed: $300 for labor plus $112.50 for an alignment.

    I got them both the UCAs and the coilovers from Toytec during the TN coilover group buy for $750 + $30 for the differential drop. Total cost excluding shocks (I purchased and had those put on at a different time) was $1192.50.

    I bought the shocks from eBay for $260. So the total for my lift was $1452.50.

    Yes, it is spacers on the front and add a leaf in back. I had rubbing after installation which was expected but I took off the front mud flaps and now I only get minor rubbing once in awhile turning sharp corners. Dont forget, I have an '09 2WD PreRunner Access cab, it might be different for other models and other lift kits...

    Ok nice. One more question if I may is that I see new spring coils come with the toytec kit. Are these better/needed if the TRD already has the blistein shocks? Or am I completely of on that one.

    The rear shocks are super easy to install, just line em up and bolt em on! Front is the same if you buy the shock and coil fully assembled.

    Check out this thread:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/suspension/11282-tacoma-lift-faq-guide-read.html

    Also, do a little searching on this site and you'll find answers to all your questions.

    However, a lift for $80 and 7 hours of labor??? Either someone doesn't know what they're doing or is trying to scam you. The cheapest spacer lift ($200-$300) wouldn't take but 2-3 hours for even someone that wasn't very mechanically inclined (like me)!

    I got my bilstein 5100s (front only) installed at ORW (San Diego) without an alignment. Cost me $148.80. They had it done in about 2 hours. They did put on some license plate frames, but I don't mind, they're better than the dealer plates. Only reason I didn't get an alignment was because I had the tsb performed 10 minutes later.
