    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..

    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.

    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?:rolleyes:

    06' TACOMA CREW CAB LONG BED SR5 TRD PKG
    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 ?
