We recommend 32×11.50×15 tires, or a 275/70/16 tire on 8″ wheels. We do not guarantee any tire/ wheel fitment and recommend you have your tire dealer install and “test fit” any wheel tire/wheel combination you are considering

    Installed the kit on my 2003 4×4 access cab TRD Tacoma. Installation wasn’t too difficult. I had to rent a spring compressor in order to assemble the coil over and then use a miniature jaws of life hydraulic lift to get the compressor out of the spring once it was attached to the shock. Gave my truck the exact lift that I wanted! very well put together kit. fits a 285/75/16 with ease (there is a small amount of rubbing but that more a wheel issue). Other then that, great kit! highly recommend for a solid 3″ of lift

    NOTE: You will need to replace the Upper Control Arms with anything over 2.5″. otherwise you will have almost no travel due to the angle of the bolt in the stock UCA. So yes, with this kit plan on buying new UCA’s

    Bolted right up to my 96 tacoma 4×4 Reg Cab nicely, and gave my front end a much needed lift after having installed my arb bumper on stock suspension. I’m very satisfied with the quality and appearance of the product everything arrived well packaged and undamaged!

    Kit is pretty simple to install. Rear seems to sit lower than I want. Does look good

    Just installed this lift on my 99 sr5 Tacoma… It took me about 8 hours to do by myself. Looking back, it isn’t necessary to take the lower ball joint mount off to install the struts although the instructions say to do so. The lift looks great. Truck looks to sit level. Still have factory wheels with 31/ 10.5 tires which look good but im ready to see the new wheels on. Go for an alignment next week so not sure if ill have to upgrade my uca’s like some others have. Ill let u know if I have to replace em. Satisfied

    Worked on my 1996 toyota tacoma single can 2.7l without the toytec coils. Just spray painted the stock coils and still got some lift.

    Very good kit, rides 100% better than my old spacer lift did

    Badass kit. Went together really well only thing I could think of was maybe a little bit longer shock bolts .

  8. Rated 5 out of 5


    I just installed this kit on my ’99 Tacoma 3.4 ext. cab 4×4 with 280,000 miles. I have yet to drive it because I haven’t been able to take it in for an alignment, but based only on looks, it looks great. I’m still sitting on stock 31×10.50 tires, but still looks good, despite the undersized tires. I’ll probably go up to 32 or 33s eventually, but I’m ok with the 31s for now. As a side note, I did install new leaf springs as well, because after almost 300k they definitely needed replacing. It appears to sit completely level from front to rear (struts set at lowest setting with the 2″ aal in rear). We’ll see how it drives after an alignment, but based upon aesthetics alone, I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade from their factory setup, while giving it a more capable appearance at the same time. Also, I would recommend coughing up the extra $100 for coilover assembly, trying to do it yourself with a cheap spring compressor isn’t safe. Hope this helps those of you considering purchasing this kit. I’ll write a update if I find it drives poorly after an alignment.

    I have installed this on my 2001 Tacoma 4×4 extended cab with differential drop. Installation was pretty simple. Just like ive read on here, i do recommend spending extra 100 for the coilover, bit dangerous to do it. Now as for getting proper alignment done after it seems like its not possible without spending the 700 on upper control arms. It will wonder and will wear your tires uneven. It does ride a lot more harder so you might keep that on mind. Over all it looks good. As far as tires ill keep updated, need to figure out this alingment issue. Just really think toytec should say that with this kit you will need different uca’s for proper alingment

    Had this kit installed on my ’99 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner and replaced the bushings/washers for the front shocks as recommended. Got a level 3″ lift with the coils and 5100s adjusted to the lowest setting in front, paired with the 2″ aal in the rear. Ride quality is awesome and the truck still looks good with 31s, although 32s would bexpect better. Perfect application for the Prerunner.

  14. Answered by the admin Yes, all the hardware included
  15. A I did not get new top mounts or bushings for the front of my shocks. Had to use the old ones🙁
  16. Answered by the admin We recommend getting a kit with adjustable coilovers like a BOSS kit or an Ultimate kit they offer higher rate springs and coilovers can be adjusted.
  17. Answered by the admin That is correct. It is assembled with the top mounting plate and all necessary hardware.
  18. Answered by the admin UCAs are always not the bad idea, but this kit will work without them.
  19. Answered by the admin

    Will the front be lifted more then the back or not will depend on several factors.
    First of all, whether you often carry much weight or not. Also if your truck is leveled now or the rear is slightly higher then the front now (before lift).
    Typically the stock trucks have their back slightly higher then front, so this kit is designed to level the truck.

  20. Answered by the admin We don't recommend this kit for a standart cab 2,7L 4cyl tacoma, because it front is too light for this kit. The quad cab may fit only if it'll have a reinforced heavy bumper and a winch on the front. It's better to use a kit that'll be slightly lighter on the front or use coilovers with adjustable height - something like or
