Yeah I got it done at Les Schwab and they might be talking about the Revtek spacer kit because I think that's mostly what they work with. Les Schwab doesn't really have their own lift kit, I think they were just telling you they provide their own lift kit from Revtek.

At first the lift was cool and all but after awhile you just get sick of the ride. The ride is just terrible and anybody could vouch for that. Spacers is just not the way to go.

I had my Revtek installed by Les Schwab. Some Les stores use the Revtek and some use Tuff Country. I had to call 3 of them before I found one that had the Revtek.

Originally I had 2.5 coilovers on order but had to go the Revtek route since my coils were on backorder and I had to have it lifted 'now' for my tires.

Lift was cool at first but after 3,000 miles it doesn't seem as nice a ride. I knew it was only going to be a temp solution anyway.

Got any buddy's that have any experience with cars? I did it with 3 people. None of them had ever done a lift before but we just worked with it and finally got it. The rear went smooth but the front was a bastard. It took all day to finish but to me it was worth saving 300+ $. It wasn't easy but if you have a couple people help you i think you could do it.

Let people know where you are located at and I bet there is some TW guys near you that would help you out. Since you are talking about Les Schwab you are more then likely in the Pacific Northwest. It never hurts to ask.

There are alot of places there in Salt Lake that you can take your truck to, I just don't know of any off the top of my head. If you start a thread requesting information on a good place to take your truck to in Salt Lake then you should be good. I wouldn't take it to Les Schwab though. They are good but not that smart on Toyota's. If you are looking for the right combination for your truck this is the right place to be. Just start reading and asking questions.
