3" Revtek Lift

Has anyone installed the 426 kit on their 05 thru 09 (4x4, TRD) with 285/75/16 tires? How is the ride/alignment? Will I need spacers to avoid UCA rub if I use the stock wheels for a while?

For the best ride for the money, Look into some bilstein 5100s.

Thanks for the comments. My offroading is mild, but I still want a good setup. I think I'll keep reading/researching before I decide.

the spacers are compressing the spring give you a harsh ride. even though the billys compress the spring also they are valved to handle the increase in spring rate.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Good idea. I liked my Revtek until I took it offroad. Drives great on the street but offroad feels like something is going to break.
