    i suggest bilstein 5100s set at .85 with eibach coils for the front, and a toytec 2 inch add a leaf for the rear with bilstein 5100s.

    you may need upper controll arms with that set up

    1. Find website on the topic of your question
    2. Create an account and list sex as female
    3. Ask question and point out that you are just a girl
    4. Check back later and read thirty comments answering your question.

    Go with an OME Suspension Lift with a 2" AAL, extended stainless steel brake lines, and LR UCA's. I have that setup and I love it to death.

    As for wheels and tires, that's all up to personal taste, needs, and budget.

    Hope this helps.

    Read the forums on lifts. There are a lot of pitfalls in lifting, but if you are ready and willing to deal with them, they sure look cool.
    Welcome to TW, by the way.
