Finally another guy from Mississippi, and his name is Brian too.....

Brian, what year is your truck, I got mine off eBay, or a friend did and I bought them from him. Its an eBay store. However they will mess some stuff up. If you could wait, buy some coil overs.....you'll save some money in the long run.
Pm me if you want me to try to find the store. Also, is there anywhere to go wheeling in v-burg?

i'm pretty sure they'll work if the spacers are for your specific generation of tacoma. they will NOT work if you're planning on stacking these spacers with the revtek lift as posted in your other post. this could be a bit dangerous (and pretty expensive in the replacement of broken parts).

you may want to consider a tuff country, pro-comp, or fabtech bracket type lift if you want that much height. i just went from a revtek to a pro-comp 4". for my needs, i really like it. the truck actually has a working suspension on it now (as compared to the fully preloaded ball joint binding ride i had previous).

the input is free, and because i'm a newbie, it's probably worth what it costs. :eek:

running spacers here myself. don't like 'em either, but as it has been said many, many times... they are the fastest, cheapest way of lifting the truck.

X2... quick and cheap. lotta people use spacers, and lotta people wheel on spacers. it works for increasing clearance, and it's affordable - here in HI, it's so common, you'd guess toyota offers it as an option.

i got tired of replacing CV boots so i just changed mine out to something else.

be careful in defining "spacer" as there are two different types: pre-load and top-load. If what you are looking at are the top-load type and give 3" they will destroy your front suspension. Use nothing thicker than 1/2" for a tl spacer. (most of the kits sold on ebay are this type)

a preload spacer (goes inside the coil/shock assembly), will be 1.5" thick to give a full 3".

now, you say you have a '01 so you have ADD. If you don't keep that lift down to 2" or less you'll be replacing CV boots on a regular basis.

check out Toytec's kits before you buy anything.

Revtec's 3" kit is a combination of a 1" preload spacer and a 1/2" top-load.

adjustable coilovers are the best way to go anyway. ;)

I suggest you do a bunch of searches for lifts here before buying anything though.

what do the tuff country spindles run
well, the TC is a 5" drop-bracket kit. some have swapped the TC spindles into a PC 4" lift, however, and that is probably what he's talking about. Don't know about costs but it won't be cheap.

wow, never thought about tc spindles on a pc kit. wouldn't that be messin with all the geometry and stuff? it would be nice to get rid of the stock spindles and spacers for something more solid.

i don't think the original poster can just run tc spindles if his truck is stock though....
