About to buy the lift!

I am about to pull the trigger on this lift kit with the 2in add a leaf and no diff drop. http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72 Anything I need to know about it? Anyone have any experience with it. Also I'm going to be installing it myself so any links to some how to's would be helpful.

Thanks,
Justin

Alot of people have this lift, good setup but ditch the diff drop, and the 3 leaf AAL supposedly rides nicer, i dont know if toytec sells it but wheelers does

Edit: i cant read. You said NO diff drop. Check out the stickies in the suspension section for some how to's. i used chris 4x4's write up, but i also did new UCAs. His writeup is the way to go if you are doing UCAs also, Bjmoose has a good write up also

No complaints with mine. Paired it with some Light Racing UCA's.

Me and some buddies installed this lift on a 2006 DCLB about 6 months ago and he really likes the lift. It took us a few hours but we had to round up some tools we didnt have on hand but it was pretty easy all together.

I have this exact lift. Blilies set at .85, with the spacers also up front. I also paired it with some LR UCAs. I like the lift, wish it would have given me just a little more lift in front, but thats just me. Rear AAL are super easy install, I took the front and had the coils and shocks put together at a shop. Rides nice and offroads nice. Def consider getting LR UCAs. They put the whole package together.

Thanks for all the replys! I dont have enough money to also buy new uca's. I heard that most people can get there stock uca's set properly with this lift. So would uca's be a problem for me? Can I just run stock uca's?

Thanks so much TW

Run stock UCAs for now and see how the alignmet works out. I would recomend finding a shop (like firestone) that offers lifetime alignment, it costs more but it will probably be worth it. Especially if you are not happy with how it drives and end up installing new UCAs later on. Some guys claims their alignment is fine after lifting with stock UCAs, but your caster numbers will be low, your truck might feel like it wanders at high speeds.

$375 shipped from headstrong offroad for light racing UCAs. Not to bad considering some uniball UCAs are over 600
