I Have Those same tires. I think my truck sits pretty level. But yeah as they ^ stated 5100's and maybe eibachs set at 0 will level it out. In my signature its my billies set at 2.5 and a 1.5 AAL in the rear

The billies are about $180 for the front from DSM. Thats cheap IMO. Spacer lifts are probably $100 you gain the risk of damaging your suspension. Spend the extra 80 on the 5100s. Also there are about 15 billion threads asking this very same question and moat agree that 5100s are the way to go.

Rear Billies are the way to go. Theyre relatively cheap and way better than stock. Dont provide any lift, for that youre going to need an AAL

I saw that you were a 6 lug. 5100s are for 6 lug truck

If you just want to level then all you need is the front. For the rear you can get a block or AAL to save money.

revtek is toyota approved and won't void your warranty, if all you are looking for is a little extra clearance, get the revtek kit. don't go down the road that most of these guys do unless you are prepared to be turned away by toyota service if you need anything on the suspension touched by them... just my two cents.

i was turned away by one dealership because i had a leveling kit on, just wanted a noise from underneath the truck looked at... prolly not common but i would inquire at your dealer first, if all you want is a little added clearance you have the option to do just that without being on your own from a wrenching perspective... of course you'll have this forum to help you fix your problem.. i'd personally rather have a mostly stock vehicle that i can take to a dealership for service.. i had mine put on at a toyota dealer so i know they'll take care of any issue should they arise... and that was most important in new truck, i'm not going crazy offroad or rock crawling it after all. and i don't like wrenching on a daily driver, it's a fantastic truck without having to be heavily modified from stock form.

good luck

revtek kit with bfg 32" a/t and 300 lbs in bed.
