Pro Comp K5075B 3" Lift Kit with Coils... Opinions?

Just came across this set up on amazon and was curious if you guys had any opinions on it and if you thought it would fit my 2010 DBL Cab TRD Sport? http://www.amazon.com/Pro-Comp-K5075..._cd_al_qh_dp_i

I'm looking for 2-3" lift and this seems to fit the bill.. Thanks

It is a good quality lift, I run it on my truck. Buy expect a stiff ride because i have read that it uses 800# coils and i can feel it

This lift is a no go! Those coils have an insane spring rate, something like 720 pounds, someone correct me if I am wrong. There's someone on here who had it with an ARB bumper and winch, and still had over three inches of lift. Not to mention it will ride like crap!

Look into an OME lift or Toytec kit. It would be a MUCH better option. Maybe do some searching on that Pro Comp lift and see if you can create your own opinion.

That's good to hear.. I don't mind a stiffer ride as long as the quality is there. What size tires are you running with it?

Over on the Fj ccruiser forum HUNDREDS of guys run them. Yes, the front springs are equal to OME 886s. BUT, the lift is SOLID. Why pay more for the OME when you can get the pro comp for less money. Also, look into IRON MAN lifts. Also big in the FJ cruiser world.

I'll look into that! Thanks for the heads up

Im currently running the 3" pro-com kit and it is a little stiff but damn for the price its so worth it. After taking it out on the trails it has become a lot less stiff. As for tires size im running LT285/75/16.bfg all terrain ko. I do rub but only a litle i have to trim just my front fenders about an half inch but that will be taken care of this weekend.

I'm glad to hear another decent review. I could wait a few months and drop some money on a lift but I'm almost tired of waiting and would rather get this lift and new tires now. I have a TRD Sport... Do you think the ride would be more stiff than stock? Would you happen to have a picture of what it looks like on your truck? Thanks again

Just added a picture as my avatar and my display picture. It's way more stiff the than stock suspension, but with the amount of looks you'll get its totally worth it. I just did the trimming today so my tires wouldn't rub and had sucsess i no longer have tire rub with 32.8" tires. Ill take more pictures soon.

I've had this lift for over 60k miles of city, highway, towing, trails, etc. It has held up just fine. It was a little bit stiff at first, but tolerable, now it's perfect. I added an extra leaf to mine because I tow sometimes and I like the raked look. To me it's a solid lift.

I had the pro comp 3 inch lift for a while and scraped it. Went with billies and all pro expo's. wasn't a bad lift just way to stiff in trails and stuff. I love my billies. also went w/ spindles which you cannot do but man the ride is so much better with billies. I ran 295/70/17's w/ pro comp lift and just had to trim the inner fender well
