Lift Recommendations

Post by Devin on Mon Oct 14, 2013 7:35 am

So im looking into going with a 3 inch lift hopefully soon one of these days... but not really sure what would be best as far as durability and reliability with also a low cost cause school and a family tend to take my money Smile lol but what is everyone else running? and post a pic of your rig with the lift... also if you have any input as to what lifts i should look into

OME.  No question in my mind, go with OME.  You'll get about two and a half inches and the ride is great on pavement and off.  Toytec and Icon have more specialized lifts that might perform better in specific situations, but for a daily driver that sees dirt I don't think you can do better than the OME coils and shocks.

LC coils on the rear with top plate spacers, if you want to go cheap.  I ran it on mine for a couple years and had no problem with it.  Just like any lift it does make your front end a little stiffer but not to bad.

Like Kevin said you can go OME but you will pay a little/lot more. Definitely a better ride though. I would do the spacers again if I was in the position.

Still on 265/75r16s

OME, all the way! We can hook you up with Kurt from Cruiser Outfitters and he can get everything ordered for you.

Just to even the odds, I'm planning on going the way Tyson did. I have LC 8 wrap coils ready to go on and I'm planning on doing Bilstien rear shocks. Up front will be coilovers once I get money.

Your FIL owns Iron Moose?  That's awesome, I've seen his 55 around and love it.

I don't have anything yet but i'm 3/4 the way to what I need cash flow wise for it.
I'm getting Icon front coilovers(Pricy) and toytec superflex coils w/ bilstein 5100 long travel shocks. Pricy but will be worth it. Go big or go home.

Lol it is always this question I see everywhere. What lift to get???? I have a Toytec Boss lift and right about now I am kicking myself really hard for not getting Icons up front. Don't get me wrong. I love my BOSS COs but I would have preferred to go Icons or even kings. These bilsteins hybrid things fade quick in the fast stuff. It sucks. Slower it is fine. I have always been under the impression that you should get what you want first and save some mine to start with instead of buying something. Not liking it and then selling it. For the weekend warrior and mild wheeling. Go OME. 800 bucks and your lifted. If your beat your shit then go for something a little more "intense". I will talk to you a little more about it and we can go over what your gonna want to do with your rig and then we can figure out what you need/want.

Not to hijack, but I am about to buy bilstein 5100s all around for 310$ from down south motor sports. I don't want to use a spacer in the back for the lift, what do you guys think about the Toytec super flex rear coils?

A lot of people like the superflex coils, they are equivalent to land cruiser coils. And I think the Bilstein 5100s are the best performance for the cost, I'm running them and am very happy. I would also look around T4R.org, there is a ton of lift information there or just google around a bit.

Cool thanks. I'm on t4r, I've read their lift stickie a few times. I was just unsure about running stock springs in front and toytecs in the back.

So I think I decided on what lift setup I want to get for my 98 limited... However, maybe you guys can help me out.

Front: TRD Tundra Coils with Bilstein 5100's
Rear: LC 8 wraps with Bilstein 5100's

This is the setup I want to get... However, I cannot find out which Tundra coils I would need to get year wise... or would it really matter? Then as far as the LC 8 Wraps... where would I go and get those? I have tried looking online for them but cannot find them anywhere.  

Currently I found the Bilstein 5100s here
http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lift-Kits-Suspensions-Shocks/4-5100-Series-Shocks-For-Most-Lifted-Trucks-with-Black-Shock-Boots.aspx?t_c=1&t_s=90&t_pt=3306&t_pn=S%2fDShockingBIL5100
for only about $312

Any help with what year tundra front coils and where to get the right LC 8 Wraps would be appreciated! Also, if there is anything else that I should get for the lift with this setup let me know... its my first lift... so not positive on what I would all need... only thinking I need the bilstein 5100s then the LC 8 Wraps and the tundra coils... are there top hats or spacers I need to buy as well? Or anything else really?

You will need the front coils off a first generation Tundra (1999-2006). Second gen Tundra (2007-present) will not work.

I found my LC coils for dirt cheap on KSL, so watch those ads religiously. Also people sell them pretty regularly on T4R.org but they typically inflate their prices.

Were you just looking in the suspension area on ksl? Or was it in the rock crawler parts?

I just get on and hit search so it looks at the entirety of KSL for landcruiser or toyota or any variation of those.
