    I jumped my 98 tacoma about 4 feet up and bottomed out my front suspension and dug into the wheelwell and then backed off. Now the truck sits about 3 inches lower in the front. what do i need to replace to make it sit right once again. It's a stock truck.

    4 feet?

    you may have bigger problems than just suspension...

    check your motor mounts and make sure they aren't cracked or bent...

    as for 3 inches lower, post pics... if its fallen that much, you may not have spindles or shocks anymore...

    Anyone else finding the username "nascarracing" combined with "i jumped my stock truck four feet in the air" suprising? I mean that had to have been a "hold my beer and watch this" moment.

    Seriously though, you probably bent or broke your factory bumpstops/bumpstop mounts, spindles are probably bent, and upper and lower control arms will probably have some sort of damage (either their mounts, mounting bolts, or joints), and I would guess your shocks are probably due for replacement.

    And like Mike said, there's a million other things other than suspension that will not hold up to that sort of abuse.

    You jump your truck all the time. What is the worst that could happen to this guy?

    You can't be serious.

    Mike is running something like 16'' of travel up front with secondary shocks and hydraulic bumps, reinforced everything, and mid-travel on steroids in the rear.

    Mr. Nascar is in a bone stock truck.

    hahah...

    well, admittedly, the only reason my truck is gusseted and reinforced is cuz i have broken a number of the stock parts from jumping the truck so much...

    before i went LT, my front end did sink a lil bit after jumping...

    here is why...
