    Yeah, that sounds good. Also, check out wheelersoffroad.com for pricing. Many members purchase from them and their prices are hard to beat.

    Those guys at Wheelers know their stuff. They will be able to answer any questions you have and get you hooked up.

    I think any change in height over stock will need new lines, I don't think there's much slack built into the stock ones. Could be wrong though. I definitely second or third the Wheelers, they are pretty good over there.

    Not a longer brake cable, but a longer brake hose. They are inexpensive and relatively easy to install.

    That's not a bad option. Did you plan on doing anything upfront too?

    I just got a set of leafs from wheelers and they were very helpful. I highly suggest talking to their rep about any questions!

    This would probably be the perfect kit for you. It comes with every thing you need and you have your choice of shocks and springs.
    98-04 TACOMA: 1070.00 [​IMG] Includes shocks, coils, leaf springs, trim packer, greasable shackles and bushings, exhaust hanger, extended rear brake line (DOT Rubber Type) and u-bolts! We include pieces that are normally overlooked by other dealers. Normally we'd supply 881 coils with N91S and N85 shocks but if you have a preference let us know. The price is the same regardless of which coils or shocks you choose

    That's a good question. I believe it was the 881 (medium) coils with the N91s (standard) shocks. The rear was the 2.25" Dakar full pack. I also got the Total Chaos UCAs and stainless brake lines.

    I do have a 4door. I think Wheelers recommended the 881s unless i was carrying armor or a winch. i didn't want it too stiff, so i did not get the heavy springs.
