2.5" Leveling Kit.

Anyone done this? Not getting wheels for a while. Question is would lifting the front be noticeable with stock wheels? Looking at Pro Comp.

I don;t have any pics yet, I just did this last friday. I was going with the 3 inch toytec but with the TSB my front end was higher then the rear so i took out the extra spacer and made it a 2.5 and it leveled it out great. looks good with stock wheels and tires i think. It does not have to much space. I plan on getting tires and wheel someday but only have 16,000 on this set so it will be a while..

Question Thanks

Just out of curiosiity, you said front was higher than rear, did this give it the Baha Pre Runner look, or was it off? Any way, need to find a good price on these leveling kits, any recommendations on retailers.

Roxpin Out...

With most leveling kits what's the biggest tires that are able to fit? 33?

Any concern with the angle on your CV's changing. Did u install diff drop? I just put a readylift 2.25 leveling kit and was curious about the CV's. Thanks.

According to my research and advice from this forum, I believe that 2.5 and below should not effect factory ride. It feels the same to me. I took it to Firestone and was able to get lifetime alignment even with the lift. Just a little bit off on odometer reading now due to my 33's. But I love the ride, not even sure if I want to go bigger. I think a supercharger is inline before a 6" lift. who knows?

I just bought an 06' crew cab (long bed). I'm looking to put a leveling kit and then install a set of P275/70/17 (32.15 ) diameter on the stock wheels. Has anybody tried this with that size tire ?? Any problems with rubbing or with the A.B.S system ? Do I need a diff drop down kit ? What is the best leveling kit to buy ?
