TSB AFTER 3" Toytec lift

Just had the suspension TSB done after I had already installed a Toytec 3" lift. Was worried that the dealer might have a problem doing the TSB with the spacers installed- but they had no problem whatsoever. I did the 1" block in the rear vice the add-a-leaf since I had planned on getting the TSB done. Looks great! Very happy with the service at Valley Hi Toyota in Victorville.

i think i'm gonna put a 1" block in the rear of mine as well. i've got the tsb done and the 2.5" leveling spacer and my front is slightly higher than the rear. i put a 3" spacer in there and it was WAY overkill

With the TSB, 3" lift in the front, and the 1" block in the rear, the rear is slightly higher than the front. I'd say it's comparable to the stock tilt but I haven't measured it. Before I did the TSB (just the 3" in the front and 1" block in the rear), the truck was level.

I'll try to post some. I'm really happy with it and I think the height is perfect now- wouldn't want to go any higher. Now I just need some steps and I'm thinking 32" tires when the stock tires are done.

motor,
i hope you stay happy longer than me!!!! i LOVED my 3" lift when i first got it a couple months ago, and don't get me wrong, i still do, just wish now i had did 6" with 35's...

i couldnt tho, i think it would be too much $ i got my 3" lift for about $230 and did the work myself, not sure how much a 6" is but i know it's more than what i paid!!

Thanks L. I'm sure I'll be satisfied for years to come with the 3" lift. I paid about the same, but honestly I don't think I would have gotten a 6" lift even if it were as cheap. I think the extreme lifts like that are both impractical and excessive, not to mention kind of obnoxious! Seems like they're "compensating" for something- not to offend anyone!

hahaha i've heard that "compisation" comment from a few people.

your probly right, i think it's one of those "grass is greener" type things... going down the road they give you the "man look at that!!!!" sensation, but for me, 3" is probly plenty.....

i bought my truck 2 weeks before i got a new job and company car, so it is a sit in the driveway fun truck..... so nothing i do is pratical, all for show, looks, and fun
