2013 Leveling Kits Out?

Anyone know of any 2013 leveling kits out? Just trying to level the front 2 inches or so.
Les Schwab claimed that no one has released leveling kits for the 2013's yet...

This is for my 2013 Double Cab Tacoma TRD Sport

Welcome to TW

2013 is identical to 2005+ Tacomas (suspension wise), so any lift or level kit will do for an 05+ Tacoma (6 lug).

Good to know! Any recommendations on brand for a 2 inch level kit?

Also, with a 2 inch leveling kit up front, will I be able to fit 285/70/17's all around?

For price, you can't beat a Bilstein 5100 lift in the front to level out with the rear. Look up Downsouth Motorsports (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/downsouth-motorsports/) and PM Sonny... he'll take care of you.

Now, if you want a better lift that performs well offroad, look into adjustable coilovers as the way to go.

If the Billstein 5100's are set at 1.75" up front, what (if anything) needs to happen in the rear, even if leveling is the goal? I've heard that an AAL is still preferred, no?

I have the same goal as the OP.

EDIT::: Just realized someone else bumped this thread and it's like 2 years old.... I'll leave the info here for future reference incase anyone cares







You'll have to do some trimming. That's a 32.7" tall tire

The wheel backspacing plays a huge part in this as well. Depending on what your backspacing is, you'll have to make sure your tire doesn't hit the UCA, but 285's probably won't hit the UCA with stock tires (or after market tires, since most people buy wheels to push the tire outside of the fender, which helps the UCA interference issue) from what I've read on here... But if your backspacing is too small, you'll probably be hitting your fenders, hence the trimming.

For reference, I have 5" backspacing with 265/65/18 (31.5" tire) and I had to remove the little flap on the front bumper, because it was rubbing.

Your alignment will move the tire forward/backward as well, which will affect things a lot.
