    This is my first post but have been lurking around for awhile. I am finally ready to get a lift but have a few questions. Looking at the ToyTec 3" lift with front coils and rear AAL. My questions are do I need to get the sway bar positioning clamps and axle shims.

    There are alot of options as far as a lift goes for your truck. What exactly are you looking to get out of your lift?

    Won't be doing much offroading, maybe a little when I go dirt biking but nothing serious.

    Yes its 6 lug. Its a 07 Prerunner DC. I am looking at the ToyTec 3" front coil with rear AAL. My question is will I need to get the sway bar positioning clamps and axle shims.

    Welcome to TW :wave:

    Get the shims...

    With 885s you don't need sway bar relocates...

    You dont HAVE to, but it might help with vibrations. Not everyone has the same lift experience.
