    I have the 3'' toytec spacer and leafspring lift kit on my 06 taco 4x4. Im looking to get a new 3 or 4'' kit that has a SMOOTHER RIDE and maby alittle more travel, does anyone have any suggestions. I was thinking of maby a 4 link in the rear, is that even possible.

    Welcome to TW!
    Anything is possible with enough money thrown at it....What is it you want from a lift?

    sure you could do a 4 link. It would be pretty custom. Like chris said, what do YOU want out of your truck? do you play in the rocks,Mud, sand? a pavement pounder?

    uhh...everything? lol
    4 linked rear? no not really an option.

    could do a long travel kit if you dont mind spending 8 grand. Otherwise some coilovers might help out your ride quality. OME coils would be somewhere in bewteen on the ride quality....honestly, spacers dont ride THAT bad. A lifted truck is NOT going to ride smooth so if its a big problem then maybe keeping it stock is a better option. A set of custom leafs for the back might give you a smoother rider, but id expect to pay at least $600 for them.

    Yea for the rear you could add some deaver or alcan leafs. they run like $600.
    Most people on here are using billstein 5100 shocks all around.
    Just go look around in the suspension and lifs section. there is unlimited amounts of info in there.
