    I have a 06 2WD and I'm thinking about putting on a 3 inch spacer up front to even out my truck. I'm from So Cal. do any of you guys out there can recommend a shop that sells the lift and install it. For you guys that have done this to your taco how much $$ did it cost.

    Where in So Cal? I'd recommend National Springs in Santee if you're down that far. $250 sounds about right, though you can do it yourself.

    Are you set on a spacer lift? If not I reccomend something else. Such as adjustable bilstien shocks.

    I would buy the bilstein 5100's for the front. Then just take off your stock coils and shocks. Its super easy. Then take those and your new shocks to a shop and they will switch out your shocks cheap. Then reinstall. Much better than a spacer lift.

    front adjustable bilstein 5100s from downsouthmotorsports.com will set you back ~175. few beers and pizza for some local members and you have your lift for less than $200, new and better shocks and you will love life!

    dont do spacers, no matter how cheap, you WILL regret it, even if your truck never touches the dirt.
