    I've come across some Tacomas that are somewhat higher on the front end (which is what I'm trying achieve). And I know for a fact they aren't 6" lifts. I have a 3" Rough Country lift on 285/65/18's and my truck looks like it has a slight front dip...how can I get that higher look? Here's my truck...

    Could just be less lift in the rear, also could be spindles in the front if it is a 2wd.

    I'm pretty sure it's non of the above...the front ends I've been seeing are much higher than my front end and it's seems to me the coils are a bit thicker. So I'm guessing it might be that...but which setup is it...that's what I trying to figure.

    you could be seeing OME 884 or 885 coils, they add 2-2.5" of lift

    Was there a drop bracket in the front OP?

    It all depends on the coils and how high you crank them up

    It's not a drastic as the pic uploaded by Anthony but its just a slight upwards lean...rather that than the nose dive look I see on my truck. Next time I see one I need to take a pic.

    did you use blocks in the rear of your truck? if so ditch them. get the TSB done by the dealer. that with whatever you have in the front should work fine.

    I have the rear tsb and front 5100's at 2.5" and I sit level, sometimes the front will look a tab bit higher but no more than a 1/4"

    My local 4x4 lift shop just told me he'd hook me up with the 5100 adjustable Bilstein's for $200!!!! If the cv joint angle ain't to bad we can keep my 3" Rough Country lift in place...would this be a bad idea?
