Toytec 3" lift question

I'm about to order the 3" lift kit from Toytec my question is with the front spacers and the rear block option does it include new u bolts? It doesn't specify or are they not needed? Thanks in advance.

I would not order the spacer lift or blocks. Harsh ride and the least quality of a lift so to speak. If you are on a tight budget look into getting the OME coil lift with a rear aal. That is a nicer lift. Only thing with the coils is that you will need to buy either Bilstein 5100's for the front, or the front OME shocks.

Or, a very popular lift is the aal for the rear and just the bilstein 5100's. These shocks will fit on your stock coils and can be adjusted to different height settings. The highest is 2.5".

Either way, both of these are much better than spacers. Most people that have a spacer lift end up switching later. Plus, you have a new 2009. Dont be stingy with a nice truck! lol

Yes you have the right idea. Whats your budget like? Are you looking to get a lift and have the truck level? Or get a lift and have the rear sit higher a little like it does now?

I want to get a 3" lift and I want it level, would a front spacer and rear aal's be a better ride that a rear blocks?

You should just save for the coil lift than with the shocks. You will more than likely regret the spacers. But definitely the aal for the rear.

so if i get the 3" lift with the coils and the rear aals I would also order the front ome shocks for the longer coil? would i need longer brake lines or anything else? or should i just go with the ome suspension lift kit with the top place spacers? http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

Yea you would buy the ome shocks. You do not need the longer brake lines. I have a 3" rear lift and I don't use them. However you can if you want. Oh and if you do that with the ome buy the trim packer as well. That is a special ring for the ome shocks thy goes on the driver shock to help compensate for the taco lean.

No just one. They only go on the driver side shock. I can tell you a better in depth explanation tomorrow. I'm at a gathering so it's hard to type.

So AAL in the rear and bilstein's on all four corners I'm thinking might be a good option for PreRunner? I was kind of thinking the Toytec Ultimate for mine...sorry didn't mean to hijack.

Not right away. If you want to wait, get it aligned after you put the lift on. Then save up and buy them. The longer you wait the more the inside of your tires will wear down.

Depends on what type of offroading you want to do. If you have the money for an ultimate lift I say go a different route. Since you have a prerunner you can run spindles. Those give you either 3.5" or 4" depending on what brand you buy. Then add something to the rear.
