2 inch leveling kit?

I have a stock prerunner and my 265/70/16 tires rub from at full lock which is weird. I am planning on going up to 265/75/16 duratracs and would a 2 inch leveling kit clear the rubbing and not bull dog too much?

Those should fit normally.

Use 5100s to level.

Im 16 and on a budget so 5100s are a bit out of my price range, so it would be better off to save for 5100s or go ahead and get duratracs and deal with rubbing for a little bit?

5100s are always better than a crappy leveling spacer.

Nope. Get 5100s. They are under 200 for the front and much better than spacer. In the end it is up to you.

If you get raped...........like 400.............I got quoted that and laughed in his face. A good shop that knows how easy it is prob 200. Labor charges arent cheap and they're gonna get ya for atleast an hour per side so you may get it done for 150ish if you find a good place.

What did the shop want for the spacer install?
