All I Want for Christmas is to Level My...

Hey all!

Newbie here and I am NOT mechanically gifted/inclined/talented

Searched a lot of the threads and discovered a lot of options to the point of just flat out being confused.

Here is what I am looking for:

I have a 2000 Prerunner, 6 cyl., TRD. And all I want to do before Christmas is do whatever it takes to get it level.

It has 105,000 miles so I am willing to make some wholesale changes if it is time to change out some of the suspension.

So, what would you recommend for getting the truck level with the least amount of investment?

Thanks for all your help...look forward to your suggestions!

I would recommend Bilstein 5100 series shocks. The spring perch on them is adjustable so you can set them to different heights depending on how much rake you have now. The higher the setting, the more preload on the spring, and the more lift.

They are under $200 from downsouthmotorsports.com
