    I'm gettin a suspension lift for my tacoma next week and before I go buy one, I wanted to get some opinions on the lifts. I'm thinking about getting a polyeurathane suspension lift but I didnt know if if was cheap and a piece of crap. What do you guys think?

    I think that as far as spacer lifts are concerned, Poly is fine. I have heard that they dont work as good as the others, but I have run them and never had problems.

    ^^You just heard from the 'go to' man on these things. I'd also like to add that I've been reading on this forum that guys who lift their 1st-gens are inheriting some sort of driveline vibration afterwards..so you may have to change out the driveshaft and Chris4x4 knows that 1 too:)

    Thanks, Ridge! The driveline vibration should be able to be fixed with the propper shims added to the leaf pack. Usually 1.5* is all thats needed. Drive line vibrations are hit and miss. Some trucks have them, while others with the same set up dont. :)
