    ok so i want to lift my truck for my birthday in july, im looking now so i can be sure i looked long enough to know exactly what i want. i was looking at this. http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72.

    Now my questions are,

    is this a complete kit? (all i will need)
    do i use the stock shocks with this?

    and i own a 2wd, cant afford the spindles. so i was actually wanting to add like a 2" body lift to the toytec :crapstorm: LOL. I KNOW I KNOW "ITS NOT SAFE" "RIDES LIKE CRAP" blah blah blah. i wont be offroading, i just want to be as high as i can be while im as high as i normally am :rasta:.... dont care what your opinion is. just want to know if i can do it? add the 2" body lift to this toytec (without getting new uca's, or extra expensive shit) , and if so.... which one?

    I just want to be looked up to :drool:

    You are still going to need a longer shock from your stock ones. You probably don't want the heavy springs if you are going to keep you stock front bumper.

    with the 885's i would need the top plate spacers correct? and what shocks would you suggest? i know the blistein 1500's will probably be maxed out for this lift correct? if i use the top plate spacers will i be able to use a body lift still or no? sorry i know i have alot of questions but i like to know everything before i start something. and i have been doing research on lifts through the forum for a couple months now. (think about it everytime one of those POS full size trucks roll by.) lol, except for that nice ass tundra of course. those lifted 6" are BADASS! btw. :drool:

    885's without top plate spacers netted me 2 1/2" up front on my DCLB 4x4 , you may get more on your Prerunner .

    The coils do the lifting , the 5100's would be at 0 , so no , they won't be " maxed out "

    does just adding the 5100's alone to 2.5 add that much lift? like if i replace just the shocks all around and set them to 2.5? then can i do like a 3" body lift on that?

    I have the toytec lift on my truck. And def put a taller strut. Im worried to take my truck through anything cause my stock shock is maxed out with that spring on the front.
