    I have a NON PRE 03 2.4L Taco with a 3" spindle lift and an 1" spacer on top of the coil.

    I was wondering if I can place a spacer on the bottom of the coil as well?

    If I cannot what are the dangers of doing so?

    What are the dangers of stacking spacers?

    I've noticed that all the lifts for this year and model are either discontinued or not made except the 3" spindles and the 1-1.5" spacers.

    Are there any alternatives that I do not know of?

    No you can't. Severe damage, mass hysteria, snapping sounds followed by a severe droop resulting in an accident, and carnage will be the ultimate results. It is not safe.

    Hmmmmm, I think I am getting the vibe that I should NOT do it. I read about not stacking them but wasnt totally sure about top and bottom.

    Are there any other lift alternatives that you know of?

    I was also wondering if anyone knew about rim sizes? I have 31/10.5/15 tires with 15x8 alloys, but I have these 15x10 rims. Can or will they fit on the truck?

    A 15x10 is a bit too wide for those wheels. As for the lift...I thought I saw somewhere some coil overs for your truck.....I'll see if I can find them

    OP....looks like your only option may be a long travel kit for your truck....Check out Chaos Fab.com and see what you think of their kit...Not sure who else make an LT kit for your truck.
