    Hey guys. I was looking at putting a leveling kit on my 2011 TX Pro TRD to bring the front end up a little bit. What would you guys suggest I put on so that I don't have to change the shocks or any other parts. I was looking to bring it up 2"-3".

    Alright after looking through the options I have decided to go with a spacer lift due to its simplicity and low cost. Are there kits that are better than others or ones to avoid?

    None of them are particularly good option. Bilstein 5100s would be not much more money and are a much better option as far as ride comfort, as well as wear and tear on your ball joints.

    I've looked at the adjustable bilstein 5100s and they are pretty affordable. How much stiffer if any do they make the truck opposed to the stock TRD shocks I currently have?

    They will definitely stiffen the ride because they preload the springs (just like a coil spacer leveling kit would), but the difference is that the 5100 shocks are valved to properly dampen the stiffer spring, and your stock shocks are not.
