: Purchased great 3" lift
03-21-2010, 12:00 PM
Better then average strut spacer 3" complete Front and rear lift.
I have a 2006 Tacoma, 4X4, V6, DC, I purchased a complete
3" Lift kit on ebay for $189.99 It included everything I needed
and the Pro Comp add-a-leafs part #13120 which are kind of short
and give a kind of stiff ride. I called ez-liftsuspension ( ebay user name )
and talked to them about it. He is a very nice guy and explained
to me that the short 13120’s give a stiffer ride but they cost less.
He recommended If I was not happy with the ride I could keep
them and purchase the Fabtech Add-a-leafs which are longer
and give a much smother stock like ride, I took his word for it and
purchased a set over the phone, I received them 2 days later and
installed them, They are great, Other then the truck setting higher
I can not tell I‘m not driving a stock truck.
If you looking for a complete easy to install lift go with this guy
and if you want a smooth stock ride purchase the lift that includes
the Fabtech add-a-leafs. ez-liftsuspension has both types posted

Thanks DC2006, I was looking for a lift that wouldn't cost an arm and leg.
I have never been on ebay before so I really didn't know what to do, But I
joined anyway after about an hour i figured it out, In case there might be
someone else that hasnít been on ebay itís easy once you understand what
to do. They have to site search engines, One for the type of product you
are looking for and an Advanced search you can use if you know the
sellers user name or the item number. I knew the sellers name ez-liftsuspension
because DC2006 had it in his post.. So I clicked on Advance search then on
By seller, An area opened and I typed in ez-liftsuspension and click find I think
it might have been a different word like GO, But anyway it took me right to
ez-liftsuspension products. They have a lot of different lifts for Toyota..
After looking at there lifts I did another search for all Tacoma lifts,
But I found ez-liftsuspension is the only one with a lift that had every part needed
to lift my truck 3Ē and all of there feed back since 2007 has been 100% good.
And there have a Ph # you can call. Anyway I bought a complete 3Ē front and rear
lift for my Tacoma with Fabtech add-a-leafs for $199.50+ $20.00 S/H It should be
at my house today, Iíll install it Saturday and give everyone an update.
Thanks again DC2006

I received my lift from ez-liftsuspension on ebay, It arrived very fast and in good condition. The one thing I did notice after taking all the parts out of the Fabtech
box was that the spacers are only about 1/2 as thick as lift they say I will end up with
But they also add a note not to be surprised by the size. The second thing I noticed was that in there picture on ebay the spacers had studs sticking out the top, I guess the studs make it easier to align and install, But for some reason they send me 6 3/8 bolts
I don't know what grade they are but I know they are not grade 8, No big deal I'll just buy some grade 8's, But I bet it will be a pain in the *** lining up the strut mount holes
with the strut spacer holes. So fare that's about all I have to say about the lift until tomorrow after I install it.

Well I installed my lift yesterday , It took me about 3hrs to install it complete front and back, The instructions tell you step by step , I think my 14 year old son could have installed it just by following the instructions they are so detailed.
I also took it and had the front end aligned, It took longer to fill out the bill then it did to align , Now I know why ez-liftsuspension on ebay has over 2000 good feed backs and none bad. After I installed the lift my son and I went out and played off road, It was great The truck rode like it was stock just 3Ē higher. Iím also glad I went with the Fabtech add-a-leafs they are longer then the Pro comp and really make for a smooth ride, I went at a few speed bumps and dips in the road at about 50 mph with no problem at all, Now all I need is bigger tires and maybe custom wheels and my truck is set for the summer. I still canít believe I got this nice of lift for a little over $200.00, Iíve had adjustable coil struts and I even tried inside coil spacers and spent a lot of cash to get a rough ride and no fun to even drive, Iíll tell you if you plan on giving your truck a lift spend the $200.00 or so on ez-liftsuspension first, I know you will love it. I'll keep you all updated over the next few months, Right now I'm taking the kid out to play in the dirt.
Keep on truckin.

Hmmmmm....dealer? You two (or maybe one?) just have WAY too many good things to say about a spacer lift, not to mention steps to purchase. :rolleyes:

I guaranty I have nothing to do with ez-liftsuspension , I wish I did.
That company just makes a good product and I thought Iíd pass
the word, As I said I have tried a few others and wasnít able to get
the ride I wanted, I didnít post the names of the other lifts Iíve tried
because I donít see a need to bad mouth them, Maybe other people
have those lifts and are happy with them, I wasnít., Maybe in a
few months I wont be happy with this one, But at present it does
want I wanted a lift to do. What if 2 people talk about a lift right
away you think we are dealers? I thought talking about different
good or bad products was what this board was about, What would
you like? I tell everyone I got a good product and not tell others where
they can get the same deal if they are interested. It sounds more like
your the dealer trying to in a settle way tell others we who say
something good canít be for real.
