    I'm on the same journey!! Reading all the old posts and various opinions to get some ideas. I won't install it myself, so I'm researching ballpark installation time to get a rough idea on cost. Keep us posted.

    Those tires likely won’t rub even on stock suspension.

    Hey everyone, I just managed to get my front end done this evening by myself after a couple hickups
    3rd gen 5100
    887
    1/2" top spacer on driver side
    1/4" on passanger
    Spc uca's
    I know itll take time to settle, but as of right now how do my angles look? Pretty bad eh. How do i correct this? After it settles and an alignment? Dakars go on tomorrow
    2nd question. It sits real high right now, the only thing i waited to torque once the wheels were on the ground and bounced some was the lower alignment cams on the lca. Is that correct?

    Thanks,
    After a lot of searching I think I'm going to wait for the 6112, and 5160 bilstiens to be in stock instead of the 888 5100 route.

    Does anyone know what needs to be done in order to put a lift kit on a 2018 with all the safety equipment such as adaptable cruise control and crash avoidance.

    Toyota's are awesome

    You can lift the Tacoma no problem, but from we were told from Toyota is that you need to keep factory rake (can't level them) on the Tacoma to insure that the sensors will still be able to read the road/ vehicles.

    Nothing special needs to be done. Lots of ‘18’s on here are lifted. Mine included.

    same shit as everyone else
    I think I’m going to do the Icon stage 2 for my 2018 double cab short bed. If I just adjust the lift to about 2.25” in the front do I really need upper control arms? Cheers and thanks.

    While they might not be needed, a good set of UCAs is always suggested to insure proper alignment.

    +1 for proper alignment.

    So that’s where I’m confused as the icon tubular UCA’s have no adjustment on them. Is the geometry different somehow or is it just that the upper joint has more play? (Allowing a little more down travel) The additional play isn’t going to change your alignment unless it’s located in a different spot. So I’m confused how it helps alignment.

    You’re going to adjust your toe by the tie rods.
    Camber is adjusted by the eccentric on the lowers.
    There is no caster adjustment unless you have the SPC’s...

    Could depend on wheel setup (backspacing/offset)

    If ICON UCAs are the same as the others, then they change the geometry to give you +2 caster to start with.

    Alright everyone, I've read through a TON of this thread and haven't seen much on what I'm looking for. What are some good options for about 1" of lift on my New '18 OR? New coil springs on stock shocks maybe? I only plan on running 255/85r16s and I know I don't need any lift but I'd like a little anyways.
