Hi guys, after reading a million posts on moderate leveling/lifting options, i am considering purchasing the Toytec kit BK0510 (4- 5100's, 2 " AAL, front Eibach coils) from their site for 1-2" front and rear lift. I do not have the rear TSB, truck is fairly new and the dealer in Chatt (where i bought truck), seems reluctant about honoring TSB when I inquired about it. I have not had an opportunity to load it down to see if it "rides harsh" or sags or hits the bump stops. Planning on doing just that once the weather warms. Anyway, was wondering if the TSB is even necessary going with the Toytec kit with 2" AAL?
Since this is a prerunner, and i am not an off roader (yet anyway), essentially my ideal set-up (at least i think) would be: keep stock sport wheels, the current 265-70-17 tires, add about .75" -1.25" lift in the front, maybe the same in the rear, keeping the 1.5"-2" rake. Current stock height (with 265-70-17 tires) measuring driver side from middle of wheel, floor to bottom of fender, i currently have approx 35.25" front and 36.75" rear, with passengers side almost exactly .25" higher both front and back. I guess this is the driver's side lean.
This kit is probably overkill for my use but most members seem happy with this setup for hwy ride quality + looks, so this kit seems reasonable, but i will gladly take suggestions.
Anyone know of a reputable installer in North Georgia , SE Tenn. or N. Atlanta area? I have air compressor and impacts and all of the tools probably to do the job , but having never done those type of suspension upgrades, not wanting to screw anything up on brand new truck. I've seen past posts where some fellow TW mod experts might offer their assistance for beer/more beer/pizza or whatever, thought i would throw this out if anyone in nearby N. Atl, TN , ALA might take me up on such an offer.
Probably looking at Apr-Jun potentially timeframe, have ordered no parts as of this time. Quite honestly, i would trust most of the guys on this forum due to their know of our particular trucks than i would most any generic auto repair shop. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks much. sorry for such a long post.
