    No one seemed to answer at the suspension forum, thought id post it here.
    I just went to Toytec's site to look at suspension lifts and I saw this "Tacoma 05 & up (Lift products will not fit models with 5 lug wheels)". Well I have an 05 SR5 DB with 5 wheel lug wheels. So what lift's can I use?

    Actually I feel like a jackass. I typed this when I just woke up. I have a 6 lug, but I only have 5 lugs on it at the moment. I got confused.

    I think I'm going to get an OME 3' lift. Aside from the lift what other parts will I need so my Taco can be leveled ( I dont like that "rake" look) and aligned?

    All help appreciated. No one answered that question on the other post I made.

    Also thanks for the replies.

    Long story. Not to sound rude, but for some reason people forget to answer the question about the lift.

    Other than the OME kit, what else will I need to buy? UCA's? or?

    All help appreciated.

    You may need to buy one of these to help correct the infamous "Taco lean". You would have to get the UCAs only if you want it to get the alignment back into factory specs.

    What issues can arise if I decide not to get the UCA's? What can happen if the alignment isnt in factory spec?

    Ohh gotcha! lol. If you're going with the 3'' OME coils up front i'd go with a 2'' aal in the rear to level it out. You'll also need new ucas if you decide to lift that high.

    Do you mind recommending me a brand of AAL's, and a model number if you dont mind?

    Id appreciate it, and thank you for the reply.

    TSB stands for Toyota Service Bulletin correct? But what difference does that make on the lift? If I add the TSB will it make it higher or? Also the OME lift kit gives me the option of adding a top spacer. What do you think about a top spacer?
