Default Lift kit?

Ok I know this is a long shot but does anyone know of a spacer for the front so I can lift it like 1". I know this coulndt be hard I see them on tacomas all the time. I am just looking for any ideas or help. I am going to check with my local offroad shop today I know they can probly fab me something but I know it will cost a arm and a leg. I really want to remove my drop and get the front up 1" Why has no one made this yet!!!

if you find one that bolts-on, let us know!
There are a number who want one, but none have yet told me about a solution.

I will keep looking. The local shop said nope. It figures aholes they can lift a freaking 1980's lincolin and put 36" wheels on it but nooooooo we cant make a spacer for the toaster. I will find something. wait a min you know what all I would need is a steel plate to go through the strut tower. I wasnt even thinking about that I waas thinking of a spacer to go on between the spring and the spring seat. I know something can be fabed for that. I am going to pull foo my strut and make a template.

Talked to a different shop and they said that iff the bolts on top are removable if so then I could cnc a spacer and put some longer studs in it and tada! I may be on to something here. I may be running into a brick wall also lol.

Randode.com is who supposedly has them for 2nd Gen XBs, 2" lift. Might have to contact them about it.

Did you buy it? If so put up some pics. I'm looking at a 2" lift with some beefier tires... I like the xB that the Marines built, but don't have the budget to strip a '99 and ' 08 Rav4 for it's tyranny and AWD. o_0
