Questions: 3" spacer kits

I'm looking at putting Toytec 3" front spacers, 1.5" rear leaf kit ( I have the 4 pack already) and I'm having issues finding out whether I need a diff drop and more importantly a new UCA to avoid camber issues.

Anyone done one and could give me some advice?

p.s this is mostly going to be a levelling kit, not really for serious off-road.

p.p.s. If anyone has suggestions on a different kit that would be great. Needs to be bolt on only!

Thanks guys!

2011, 4x4, SR5, 4 pack leaf, 31" Duratracs on stock 16"s.

If the budget allows id go for some 5100s instead of spacers. Most will suggest not doing the diff drop. You may or may not need UCA's. Below 3" you wouldnt. Hit or miss on getting it properly aligned at 3" on stock UCA's

new uca's would prevent vibes from bad alignments after the lift

Diff drops are not recommended for 2nd gens, as they don't really do anything, and can be damage multipliers

I was looking at them. I'm a bit cash strapped as I've been putting money into a second set of wheels and tires.

Any suggestions on UCA's?

Light Racing on the lower end. Its what i have. They work fine, albeit they look stock. There are some nicer looking ones out there but funtionally they work.

For the money, if I woulda known I woulda ordered the 5100's. I got the 3" rbp withch I MSRP at 410, had truck stickers on it, Whitcher is like 260, it's a 3" spacer front 1" back block, and diff drop kit, the rear blocks and diff drop will now collect dust in the garage. I just did it today, I have no vibrations and only the toe was kicked in with the kit, not bad either

Save for the 5100s. I'm sure you don't have to lift right this second.

If you look on my "3" RBP lift anybody??" thread, someone posted a link to a place that had a set of 5100's on sale for like $300, and if you wanted blocks I'll sell you my set extremely cheap
