    My daily driver is a 2001 Tacoma TRD with a 3" spacer lift and 285/75R16 Bridgestone MT's. I'm going to install a body lift in the rig within the next couple of weeks. My question is, would it be a good idea to install new body bushings when I do the body lift? I ask because the truck isn't used hard and it only has 29k on it, basically the stock body bushing shouldn't be in bad shape. Any tips on this would be much appreciated.

    If they are not in bad shape, I would use them.

    Good luck!

    Polyeurathane bushings will improve the articulation and ride of your suspension, so even if your stock bushings are in good condition I would recommend switching out since you will be in there anyway. I think you would be happy with the results.
