    This is my first post and im sure its come across before. Im looking to lift my 2009 tacoma 3 inches but only plan on using the coil spacers for the front and aal for the rear meaning leaving the stock suspension. Any opinions or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

    never ran a spacer lift but there accounts of broken suspension parts and harsh ride.

    definitely recommended to avoid off roading with spacer lifts


    the aal will be ok. i ran just one for a while from a gmc truck.

    may want to upgrade the rear shock and depending on height gain you may also want extended rear brake lines

    Welcome. Offroading isn't a good idea with the spacer. Front may b ok but rear will most likely need longer shocks. If street driving u should b ok but for wheeling save up and go suspension. Welcome.

    3" Toytec spacers, Bilstein 5100s in the back with add a leaf and overloads removed.
    Go with Bilstiens. Love mine, but will eventually upgrade to Icon. Hate my 3 inch spacers. My truck see 95% road and the ride is horrible.
