    i kno i cant spell
    spelling is not my best subject
    so was thinking of buying a lift for my truck (98 tacoma 2.7 4wd)
    i want a good cheap lift
    i was thinking this
    http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/dayaalkit.jpg
    mainly because its 155$
    but i like what ive been hearing about the bilstein 5100's
    so i was thinking 5100's for the front and rear and a front diff drop spacer and a 2.5 inch aal
    and all together that would coust 453 total

    are there any cheaper lifts i can get???????

    Well If you ride it hard!:D....Then I think about doing either OME coils and shocks, or the adjustable coilovers. But if you are on a budget then I would do the OME route on toytecs site.

    That will be good, the ride will be stiffer though. I had a spacer lift upfront and I hated it. Just on road driving. So just think of how harsh it will be offroad. Like I said before man, If you dont care that its ganna be stiffer then go for the spacer lift, but I would recomend maybe getting new front shocks, like bilsteins. But what are you ganna get for the rear?

    Not sure on that one... But def. get a long AAL not the ProComp short ones. I heard they ride real rough, and I think it would be best to upgrade the rear shocks with bilsteins. Just my .02cts. There an awsome shock.

    And I would for sure stay away from the spacer front lifts. You wont like the ride man! Go with either bilsteins or a coil lift like OME.

    you wont regret it! I wish soo bad that I did it right the first time, but I "was" stupid.:)
    So now Im pretty happy with my set up! Im just trying to decide if I want to keep it at this hight or drop the back and front a little. But I dont want to rub......Tell me what you think man!
