I dont know what would be better/more cost effective buy dakers for 400 plus 140 shipping then pay to get them put on. Or try and do it my self. Or go to a shope near my place thats done a few buddys trucks. AAL and re arc for 450

Don't do it, I understand where your coming from but, re arc sag with time and the aal is only so good. It's like putting a wonder bra on some saggy boobs. Get new boobs and call it good you won't be disappointed . You know what I mean, invest in a good quality rear leaf pack and call it good, a little more money up front but in the long run it will save you time money and headaches trying to mess around with crappy stock springs in the future. I did and I'm glad.

Rear leaf installs are pretty easy and really only use basic hand tools, pretty straight foward. It can take a few hours with your buddy's . No big deal

Thanks ,

Brett

Did you try Toytec? I ordered mine last week and it was at my house in 3 days, to NJ that is. And if your concern is the weight in the rear get the replacement leaf packs. The Dakars seem to be the most popular.

Nope that would work. You may not want to preload them tho, keep the billys set at 0

CCM Offroad

I know alot of people on here are West Coast so I have a question about a California company. Its CCM Offroad they have a Taquito 2.75 leveling 5 lug lift for Tacos, it's a full lift and $200.00 on ebay with only 16.95 shipping. Looks good in the pic but I was wondering if anyone on here had had any experience with their products. Ready Lift is $139 more with free shipping. Both claim a lifetime guarantee against failure. Any help would be appreciated for this Noob!

If you want a full 3" just get 885s with 1/4" top plate spacer. I have heard both with 884s some say you shouldnt preload them with billies, some say you can.
