Default 1994 Toyota lift

Hello,
I have been looking at lifting my 1994 Toyota pickup and was wondering what would be the best route. I only wanna go about 3-4 inches because I already got 31" tires. Any help would be much appreciated

Why do you want to lift it if your already clearing the tires?

If your set on lifting i would just get some ball joint spacers for the front and rear shackles to gain ~2.5 inches and be done until your ready to cut the ifs off and solid axle it.

Avoid any ifs lift that involves drop brackets

I have a set of new ball joint spacers I've decided not to use if you want to go that route. I plan on running 32's on my 93 with no lift. My 89 cleared 33's with a little work with a bfh. Been running 31's on my 94 with no lift for years.

Although it will elimnate almost any drop in the front and make it ride like shit you can always crank the torsion bars for an inch or so.

When I had my '89 XtraCab I was told to avoid them by the guy that does my suspension stuff. Go with torsion bar keys or a legit suspension lift.

I didn't know this place was still in business until a couple weeks ago. I never see ads for them.

I had 32x11.50s on my 89 with the T-bars cranks and AALs. They rubbed some in the front.
