    Sorry if this has already been answered i may have just overlooked it.

    I am planning on getting the readylift kit for 2wd 2nd gen tacoma and was wondering if there are any alternatives for around the same price

    billistine 5100s 300 for the set, it will improve your ride quality and not mess up any components on your suspension

    Spacers and Bilsteins are about the same price and you can fit the bigger tires with the Billys set at 2.5

    Neslerrah has the bilstein HD shocks/struts, they don't make 5100's for the 5 lug

    there's not much you can do besides the readylift, unless you want to spend +$1000 on a total chaos/SAW mid travel or even more for long travel

    EDIT: you can go up to a 30" tire without rubbing, which will give you a slightly beefier stance, just not lifted
