    Eibach lifted springs. 285 Nitto’s
    Yeah I agree DallasTrdPro, My mechanic that’s does most of my work on my vehicles I have been with him for a lot of years. He doing the install and he recommends doing the springs over the spacers. I even checked with Toyota dealer I use to deal with years ago close to where I work at they have a mechanic that does all there lifts on there brand new tacomas or 4runners and he told me between the springs and the westcott he would stay with the springs. I checked there because I did not know if my local mechanic could do it because of health issues. But he said he fine to do it so I rather give him the business. My whole concern is I only want to do this once and hoping the springs give enough to run 285’s without doing any cutting. I checked with Toytec Pro spacer lift yesterday and there lift is almost like the westcott. This is why I’m second guessing myself to do the springs or spacer lift. The guy from Toytec said also which the Pro is already one inch higher and adding there spacer lift he said I would probably end up to being close to 3 inches in the front. He also asked which wheels I was running because and I told him and he said I should have less chance of rubbing with my 8.5 inch wheel over the Pro wheels. Sorry about the long post. DallasTrdPro.

    too many things that could go wrong during install and down the road with the Westcott vs Eibach springs. I’m going with the Eibach and then removing my wheel spacers. Same price. Eibach has been around for way longer than any other company.

    Yeah I know what you mean. That video I mentioned on the other forum about Baka his name on you tube on his Eibach spring install I did not think it was bad what he had to do for the 285’s to clear on his white Pro.

    Watching the guy beat the hell out of the Westcott setup made me cringe.

    Get the Eibach springs.

    The lift height won't be the determining factor on whether you rub or not.

    Whether you rub or not will depend on your wheel specs and alignment.

    My 1st alignment after the level was way off. Pulled hard to the right. Guy at Chitown off-road called people.over to look as the bolts were way outta position...they were laughing as never seen that before. Anyway next alignment from them is spot on. I had the same clearances stock, 1st and second alignment...dunno if it was dumb luck:notsure:

    Here is what the Eibach springs look like with the 285's and stock wheels. Perfect to me.

    Great job, DallasTRDPro, it’s such an art trying to get it right, and you succeeded! It looks great. It looks level to me, but if you look at wheel space, i.e. centre hub to fender edge, the rear has more than the front. That’s why you can’t use this measurement if you want level. You can measure the frame to the ground, or better yet put a masonry level on the frame or the rocker panels and see what it says. Maybe even the window line. Whatever method you use, your eye doesn’t lie. And in the end, it’s whether you like how it looks.

    Yeah its not perfectly level, but it is much better. The odd thing is it got rid of my hood bounce which my theory is the stock rake causes it based on wind flow.

    978AEC8A-9022-40B9-AC17-C584C0AFB4B5.jpg Here is a teaser shot. Test fitting my 285’s where the picture does not do it’s justice. Removed front mudflaps for now. This pic still has mudflap on.
