In search of a 2WD lift/suspension kit.

Howdy,

I new here and I'm looking to find a lift/suspension kit for a 1984 2WD Toyota PU. It was My Mom's truck and she had a 18 mile daily commute, honest! We, my son's and I, thought it deserved an upgrade.

Anyone have experience, good or bad with aftermarket kits? Who makes good ones? Who to avoid?

Thanks in advance,

Sincerely,

Troy Rice

I thought Downey offered up some 4x2 stuff for those years? I'll check the catalog when I get home...

Check out Total Chaos, they make some sweet long travel kits, I think they're kinda pricy (I know the 4x4 stuff is) but they're built to be jumped so they gotta be tough.
