No. It rides like ass because I'm assuming you have a spacer lift for the front. How high do you want to go and how much you want to spend?

I know what you mean my freind!.. I had the same lift on my truck, and over time it got worse and worse. Spacer can also cause your suspension to wear out quicker or start to sag. If you have a pretty heavy bumper and winch, its even worse.

I would def. get the OME suspension kit or even the Toytec Coilovers would be a great choice because you have adjustability.
Here's there site. http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...d=63&Itemid=72

And you cant go much higher then 3" if your a 4x4.
2wd is another story!

But Im assuming its been getting worse and your suspension has started to sag because of your bumper.

No Prob. My lift is the Toytec Ultimate lift. Plus I added a 1" block to the rear to get my rear a little bit higher then my front.

Im prety sure I got my box here..... http://pickupspecialties.com/
