    Hey, Just doing some early preliminary research into possible suspension mods. I am not quite sure what route I will go if any yet? still trying to determine a few things such as, installation cost?

    I do not have the knowledge/talent/tools/space etc.. to try this so I was wondering what or who the popular go to shop is?

    Like I said just doing some very early research.

    This site is loaded with great information. Thanks

    Hey Throttle8! The guy's on here are awsome help. I'm in Ontario I can't help you with a shop in Vancouver but I was in the same position as you for suspension. I researched and ended up deciding on a Toytech 3 inch Ultimate Lift with Total Chaos UCA's, a little expensive but well worth it in the long run IMO. Good Luck

    Cheers

    Try Dales Alignment in Langley. I get all my work done there. Honest shop, does great work. Carry Bilstines and a couple other lift products. They will install and alignment any lift/suspension.

    Cruisin Off Road in Chilliwack. I'm an Ironman 4x4 dealer, and do installs as well. I carry full kits for the 2nd Gen Tacoma. Its a full spring lift (not spacers), and the full kit comes in around $900 +- depending on the exact setup. My shop rate is reasonable as well.

    I'd be happy to discuss what you are needing, and put together a quote. Feel free to email me directly at cruisinoffroad(at)shaw(dot)ca

    North shore Offroad in north Vancouver is another good shop. I had my suspension installed there and I'm happy with how it turned out. I thought they were well priced and the guys there were very helpful.
