Tuff Country doesn't make a 3" suspension lift kit... they do make a 3" spacer lift, and $520 is a hell of a lot for a spacer lift.

Yeah, nevermind... meant coil lift. Anyways, it's coil spacers and rear AAL's for $520, not even installed? You can get the same thing from Toytech for under $300.

You can get a toytec 3" lift in the front and 2" in the back for around $299 and just get a set of 5100's all around for around $269 from DS Motorsports. That's what I got and I love it!!!

Yeah should be less then $600 if you get it from the right places. Well, now ride wise I love it. A bit stiffer but that's a good thing. Now I can't compare it to the stocks because I got my setup all installed at once. But about 95% of people told me to go with the 5100's and take out the stock shocks. Haha!! Yeah UCA's are a bit over the edge in price! That is completely up to you though. I just got them because I wanted my alignment right and I had the money too. I know many people that run with the stock ones and they don't have any issues.

The 5100's are designed specifically for your truck by one of the largest performance shock companies in the world! Its hard to compare a "Lift Spacer" that uses the stock O.E. strut to a Nitrogen Mono Tube shock with specific valving-

Toyota TRD thinks they are worth it...!

I got my 4 bilstein 5100 from Down south motor sports, great guys there and very helpful. I think the ride is fantastic and it looks like a truck should now. I got my fronts installed and an alignment for $189.00. The guy did say afterwards he wont do any more for that price.
