    Would you recommend this for a 2wd double cab? I have heard the coils are really stiff?

    It will work just fine, you may be 1/4 inch taller since you are missing a little bit of weight in the front, it will also be slightly stiffer but nothing uncomfortable in my opinion.

    I plan on getting bumpers here soon also. So that would help with the front. What ture size would you recommend?

    That really will help alot. Usually we see a 285/70/17 on a full 3" lift, with minor trimming of the inner plastic or the bumper.

    Thank you for your help. I think I'd stay with a 275/70r16. Don't really want to cut anything.

    Dear Toytech, with a ARB bumper, dual batteries and winch on a 2.7l access cab, would I still get 3 inches of lift? Do you recommend aftermarket UCAs? Do you offer a military discount

    Does this lift require any driveshaft modification, and my leaf springs on the rear look flat. Is that normal or would I need to replace them before this lift is installed?

    No drive-line modifications required although every now and then some people do have a slight vibration come from the rear, we do have fixes for that including an axle shim. The Stock leaf pack does have a tendency to sit flat as they are pretty weak.

    You may sit slightly lower, about 2-2.5 inches of lift. We do offer a discount for military if you want to give us a call 303-255-4959
    Thanks

    My truck just hit 157k on stock trd billies and they seem okay on mountain roads, but I just can't stand the slam when hitting a pothole or heck even a big enough crack in the road will rattle my teeth. Will this setup fix/help my issue or is it geared more towards offroad use?

    Hello, new to the lifting aspect of my Tacoma. Ok, I have a 1999 Tacoma Reg Cab 4cyl 5sp 2wd with dealer installed AAL's and factory 14" steelies. The ALL's were installed for the original owner who had a tank in the bed for pest control spraying. I'm the 2nd owner and want to lift the front to level the truck and put 15" styled steel 5 spoke factory rims and PreRunner size tires but in the 15" size due to the 5 lugs. Do you have a kit without the add-a-leaf parts since the rear already has them and is the same height as my 2002 crew cab PreRunner??? Basically I want the basic look and height of a Reg Cab PreRunner!IMG_1702.jpg IMG_1708.jpg IMG_1707.jpg IMG_1784.jpg IMG_1785.jpg IMG_1786.jpg

    Never mind previous message above as I have now just bought a SUPER LOW MILEAGE ( ONLY 72,325 MILES) 2000 Tacoma Extracab 4WD 2.7L 5-speed from the Acura dealer in Tampa! LOL. It was a trade in from original owner! So I don't need to lift the front of my purple Tacoma to PreRunner height. Yay!IMG_1829.jpgIMG_1838.jpgIMG_1841.jpgIMG_1848.jpgIMG_1844.jpgIMG_1846.jpgIMG_1847.jpg

    i'm looking into purchasing a 2001-2004 v6 manual 4x4 TRD xtra-cab or something similar (1st gen ext. cab 4x4 with v6 and manual trans) and want to get an idea of what parts are available for the vision that i have for the build. I plan to run an ARB bumper up front (80-ish lbs) with a WARN VR8000 winch (80 lbs shipping weight so probobly around 65 lbs) so the front end will have around 145 lbs to 160 lbs on it. it also will have a CB antenna mounted to the bumper and possibly a couple of lights but the bumper and winch are the 2 "big ticket" items up front. i was hoping to run these coil springs up front paired with the Bilstein 5100 shock absorbers. i need to get a full 3 inches of lift in order to clear either 33x10.50r15 or 285/75r16 (haven't decided yet, depends on what rims i go with) and i want to make sure that these coils will support that weight (keep in mind that i will still need to have a decent amount of suspension travel). will these coils support the winch, bumper, etc. while still giving me a full 3 inches or if not can you recommend any coils that will.

    Hello and gooooooood morning Alex!

    These coil springs/ coilovers are designed for factory weight applications only to achieve the lift amount listed. If you are looking for a simple bolt on application similar to these I would HIGHLY recommend going with the OME front coilovers, they offer different spring rates to accommodate the added weight that you plan on adding to your Tacoma.

    https://www.toyteclifts.com/omefr9504-ome-front-coilovers-95-04-tacoma-96-02-4runner.html


    Shoot me a PM and I can get you squared away.


    Thank you,

    David

    thanks David, as i haven't purchased the vehicle yet, i am not yet in a position to purchase the suspension. the OME set looks like a great option and i think that once i have purchased the truck i'll PM you to get more info. thanks!
