A friend wants to lift his 90 Toy pickup. Any recommendations on lifts? He wants 4-6" without doing a body lift.

There are very few drop bracket kits for them. But I think that there is a 4 inch kit for it. Maybe a procomp if I am not mistaken. Pretty pricy though, runs the same as ours do. Has he thought about a SAS? It would run about the same once you figured in gears and everything if you could get your hands on a good axle.

The front can be lifted by cranking the torsion bars no more than 1.5" depending on what the stock rim to fender height is. I was checking this on my old truck by jacking up the front and the upper control arms were almost resting on the droop stops at 1.5" of lift which is bad. The older truck's suspension geometry is different from the Tacomas. Cranking the torsion bars gives a stiffer ride and less flex, and ball joint spacers shouldn't do either of those, but you have to grind the upper control arms to install them. The drop bracket kits run about $650 for the 4" stage 1 procomp and up. The Superlift is about $100-200 more, but has one piece bracketry.

I know Superlift has a 4" kit. A couple of my friends have pre-tacos and are running that lift. It's a pretty good kit. Pro-comp, Trailmaster, Tuff Country also make 4" suspension lifts too. The prices are also cheaper than a Tacoma kit.

Everybody I know with the older toys recommend the Superlift kit. Most will recommend you avoid the Procomp lift.

Thanks for the replies, has anyone had any experience with specific kits? Anything to look out for like the Trailmaster strut etc. Thanks. ....Steve

Have him look into Superlift for a decent drop bracket kit. They never got into the Tacoma Market but they are quite popular with the Pre-Taco guys in my area.

I just had to post in the new forum, although I really dislike VBB. :rolleyes:

I've been running the Pro Comp 4" lift on my old 'Yota for over 3 years now with absolutely NO issues with it, except rear blocks suck, so I do have Skyjacker 4" lift springs installed in there now, & so do the PC shocks that come with it (got Bilsteins). Might want to change out the steering stabilizer to something other than OEM. At least to me, all the available lifts for our earlier 'Yotas are pretty much the same...Skyjacker, PC, Trailmaster, Superlift, etc. Cranking the torsion bars won't give you much lift if you're looking for 4-6".

Just my .02 cents...yep, really had to try the new board here.

Just answering the actual question, smartass. LOL!!!!! Play nice now. :rolleyes:

IMHO, I find VBB's annoying. Not that I like Delphi as an entity, I just prefer their format & still moderate 3 boards there. Easier to navigate for us oldsters. :D

Yeah, that would be sweet now, wouldn't it. No time, no $$$. :(

I've just coughed up over $2K in the past 4 months to get started in real estate (school, license, membership dues, advertising, etc.). One thing's for sure - I won't be hauling any clients around in my truck...well, unless of course, they're shorter than 5' & like mud. Hahaha. :cool:

Haven't sold the Taco yet?

He's cheap and just doing it for looks. He's leaning towards a body lift now I think. Thanks. ....Steve

Interesting. That fringe firm Northwest Off-Road shit-talks everything else BUT the Pro-Comp IFS lift, putting it on a pedistal. I delt with NWOR once, and I'll never, ever, ever have anything to do with it ever again.
