    Great information and pictures! If you could add what suspension you used in the front and rear, that would also be helpful.

    I was hoping for part#s and such. It makes things easier when people want to go look up specific products on the manufactures page.

    I have a question regarding first gen tacoma lift. I have a 98 with 3" fabtech spindles in front and 2" shackles in back. Running 235/75/15 Toyo Open Country AT II tires on 15x7 Jeep Canyon wheels. I use the truck for camping. With a load in back, she squats pretty good. Can I add the AAL in conjunction with the shackle and still have driveline and other components be ok? I know it will have a little rake, but that's ok. Maybe eventually add v6 coils in front. I searched, but didn't have time to read the entire lifted minis thread. Thanks!

    I know very little about 1st Gens but from what I've seen with 2nd Gens your should be ok with adding an aal. It will increase you load capacity and like you said rake out more. I don't think you would have any issue with driveline either. As for the front I too have heard the v6 coil rumors and never really found any solid evidence. If you haven't changed out your front shocks I'd suggest that first as when I did it to my truck it stiffened out enough.

    Can't we ask for a Mod to Stickie this? 5 Lug doesn't have any stickies and this is usually the main reason any 5lugger comes into here and asks.

    @Kavik after doing some research ive not found any one who has lifted 6lug spings on there truck. And 6lug guys that go sua have to go pretty custom just to achieve stock hight. So i dont think adverting 6lug lift springs as a easy bolt on option for 5lug guy is a good idea. Now those springs combined with a flip kit yeah. But for sua no
