    So i have a spacer lift and now im wanting to upgrade to something that doesnt suck. When me Tax return gets here ill have about 500 to spend.

    Question is for 500 could i get a lift that is the same height if not more then my spacer lift?

    this is one kit im looking at but would take ANY options. http://www.skyjacker.com/product.php?ProdID=8519 I've looked at OME and toytec and just not sure.

    And please dont bash me, ive been looking over threads all day. And cant figure out what lift would be better then my spacer for around 500.

    Bilstein 5100 with eibach springs is pretty standard. And it would help on the height thing is you said how much lift the spacer gave you.

    Then that setup would be for you. I'm guessing that you don't go to the desert and romp it, correct?

    If you haven't killed your current setup and don't plan on beating the truck much harder then you should be fine.

    NO. with no-stock springs and billies DO NOT add preload to the springs. Leave the bilies at 0, but with the eibach springs and bilies you can set them up to the .85" setting with weight up front (i.e. after market bumper). Get rid of the block and replace with AAL.

    If I were you, I would get bilies and set them at 0" with the eibach springs that you can get from Toytec for the front.

    I ordered my lift the other day. Bilstein 5100’s front and rear from Down South Motor Sports, $283.00 shipped. Tuff Country 2” add a leaf from Suspension connection $66.53 shipped. Call Down South and tell them your from TW for that price. My Taco is a 2010 access cab 4x4 SR5 2.7L

    I've been looking and searching for a while this is the best price I could find. From the sound good thing I didn't do a spacer.

    how much lift up front are you expecting? I'm just unsure about cranking the billies up on stock coils to get me at the same height as my spacer lift i have now.

    You can crank up the bilies on stock coils. To have the same amount of lift you have now (about 2", right?) put the bilies at the 1.75 mark.
