    just nought a ‘92 and I couldn’t be newer to the scene. I bought it as a daily driver for work but a good friend is experienced and his brother is a popular local wheel guy.

    I’m interested in lowering this bad boy and making it stylish. Currently, it’s stock single cab. Fairly clean for its age.

    I just bought it a few days ago. I'm lowering it 3 in to start and see how it goes from there.

    Yo. You dudes have a good eye.

    I took it to the local suspension shop to get a quote and it was definitely confirmed that it has a 3" body lift. So not only will it come down to get it back to stock, but then 3" more after that. I got quoted $600.

    I also bought some QA1 shocks and lowering blocks for the bed.

    yeah 600 was to remove the lift and lower it. I ended up being referred to a guy out here in San Diego that knows toyotas inside and out. Price point is similar, but I know the quality of work will be top notch.
