    Search bud! Look at bilstein 5100s great product better than spacer lift and cheaper than complete lift kit. They are height adjustable to 2.5"

    Bilstien 5100's are the best way to lift it around 2''. Coilovers for the front and AAL's for the back are good for around 3'' of lift but are pricey.

    toyteclifts.com has great stuff at affordable prices, plus we get a discount being on tacomaworld. billy 5100's are good choice, but be sure to get those little spacer axle drop kits.

    Anytime you change anything with the suspension you need an alignment.
