Can you give me an idea of your components and the cost?

I have the rear tsb completed on my 2009 DC.

Thanks.


I too have heard nothing good about spacer lifts. Do a search to verify.

The Toytec spacer lift rides pretty rough. But that's how I like it (that's what she said); I like feeling every bump in the road.

That being said...

I'd save up for the OME setup here if I were you. Or at least a set of Bilstein 5100's. Either one of those will ride WAY better.

Dont off road with that set up. 06Bluez broke his shock on his first off road trip with that set up. Also, his ball joints were toast after 5000 miles.

OK, so if I wanna be able to light offroad on occasion & not break shit (or buy new ball joints) just go with 5100s up front set on 1.75 with TRD coils? Then 5100s with TSB 1.5 AAL & Timbrens out back? or run with the TRDs out back since I already have them?

[quote=Veccster;478122]Can you give me an idea of your components and the cost?

I have the rear tsb completed on my 2009 DC.

Thanks.

Here is what I got.
Front:
http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pag...mart&Itemid=53
I didnt get the 1/2" top plate spacers. Im glad beacause i didnt need them. I have the tsb done too and this setup leveled my truck out perfect. Also for the front:
http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pag...mart&Itemid=53

And for the rear:
http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pag...mart&Itemid=53

I havent installed the rears yet so I cant attest to the ride. But It should be great. I also have the trim packer for the driver side front shock as seen here:http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pag...mart&Itemid=53

Hope that helps. My truck looks great. It will look even better when i buy some 285/75/16's. Im also saving up for the tc uca's

The revtek is the same thing as any other spacer lift. Dont do it, you will F*** your S*** up. Let me be the example for all of you. Im pretty sure I have pics of the carnage in my gallery.

Yeah I hit a slight ditch. I went back and did the same mud ditch with my new 3" Skyjacker platinum Coils and no dmg done. I actually think I went faster the 2nd time. That ditch is where I will be testing all of my new componets.
