What lift should i choose

hey guys im new to this site so i will say a little about myself before i ask my question. i am currently deployed in afghanistan i am a SSG with the 2nd ranger bn. i will be coming home in late feb sometime. now the question is what is the easiest 3-4" lift that i can do myself with no special tools or uncommon tools. I dont know why but i want to do this lift myself it will just mean more if i do it myself kinda corny but it will. i am no mechanic by no means but i do alot of do it yourself projects and im good at figuring things out. i have a 2008 double cab trd offroad sr5 prerunner and i want a lift that i can do myself relativly easly. please help thank you

thanks for the reply is it easy to figure out how to install coilovers and a leaf pack a leaf pack is already put together and you just have to switch it out with the old one right and much time does it typically take to do these

Spindle lifts are the best kind of lift for a prerunner. They are strong and ride amazing.

They lift the front like 4" so unless you plan on a bigger leaf pack you will have a bit of a bro lean lol

Hmm honestly it'd be worth it just to get a 3" leaf pack just because the ride is much better than a block/ add-aleaf

Yes it will. So an estimate is 1k for spindles and 800 for rear Lear pack with some nice fox resi shocks and you should be set!

I know what you mean about wanting to do the lift yourself and meaning more that way. Not corny at all.

I have a TRD Off-Road and am looking at lifting it about 2.5" in the front and an inch in the rear to level it out.

This is the website I was looking at. Check out their installation manual as well. It has great pictures to give you an idea of what you are getting yourself into.
