It's not a bad kit but I've heard the Pro Comp coils are very very stiff. Also, with a 3" lift you'll probably want to get new UCA's to get your alignment in spec.

For your Prerunner, you might want to consider lift spindles for the front, an AAL for the rear and you're set.

This is a better option at this price point. Stick to 1.75" front lift IMO and avoid having your alignment out of whack.

I've had this kit....I actually just blew a front shocks from wheeling it to hard, like they said u will deff need new ucas cause unrolled the springs settle ull be at about 4" of lift....and the springs are stiff its a bumpy ride...IMO save up for a better kit like mentioned above I made the mistake of going with this kit and hated it

I have this kit on my truck and ive wheeled pretty hard, nothings broke and it has performed great. The ride isn't stiff at all. Maybe a tad stiffer than stock but who cares. I don't have ucas and my alignment is perfect. And no issues with suspension geometry. You will just have to have the dealer recalibrate the zero-point sensor and get an alignment done somewhere. Then your set. For the price and performance, I love this kit, hands down.

I ran this kit for about a year. I thought it was wayyyyy to stiff. Wheeling was rough. Everyday driving was rough...I mean rough dude. I swapped out the whole thing for billies on all four corner's, all pro expo pack and spindles.(i'm a prerunner.) dude I could not be happier with my billies and expo pack. The ride is night and day on and off road. If you want a cheap and easy lift that will rust in a year, get the pro comp. If you want to do it right save your money and get billies or OME..sorry but it's the truth. The pro comp lift is fine but dude I am speaking from experience.....Billie or OME...you get what you pay fer...nuff said
