    okay guys, ive got the money i need to purchase a lift for my taco. Its an 07 sr5 pre runner off road. Ive decided i want a 3'' lift but i just dont know what lift to get. I would like it to be fairly inexpensive. Anybody have suggestions? If so can you link me to some threads on how to install them?

    there will be a few people tell ya go look at the threads. there obviously are so many lifts ranging from $150 and up. i cant tell ya what lift to get, but i like the pro-comp 3" lift or the bilstein aal. my opinion, i currently dont have a lift. good luck man.

    ive got 5100s set at 2.5 and aal at 1.5 and gave me the lift i was looking for. the whole thing cost me about $230 i think which was good with me.

    @Bandit thanks for the suggestion bro but $730 is a little too steep for me lol. I found a suspention lift by top gun customz for $219 on ebay, Im thinking about purchasing that.

    you can get a shitty ride with spacers, stick to shocks and AAL or around that area. You might have to cough up a little more, but you get a better ride out of it.
