    Nope, too old and busy to spend a full day with my truck apart on jack stands in the garage. For budget consider labor at 150-200 per corner, the bushing replacement was another $200 plus you'll need an alignment. I provided all the parts to the garage for install.

    I have a 6MT TRD sport. I would avoid going for lower gears if you tow. 4th gear is recommended for towing. If it’s to low for highway travel how ya going to tow at highway speeds

    Gotcha, thanks for the info! If you don’t mind me asking, what was your total price for everything out the door (lift, labor, tires, CMC, etc.)? Thanks!

    These threads will give you all the details and some pics including costs at the time. Lifting your truck can be a slippery slope.

    Initial lift with 5100s, 885 springs, 3 leaf AAL and bushing - https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/dclb-with-885-springs-5100s-at-0-and-3-leaf-aal.502144/

    Change over to 887 springs and UCAs - https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/cant-leave-well-enough-alone.583822/

    Change over to 285 tires from 265 - https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/talk-me-out-of-285s-update-i-didnt-listen.616912/

    I can tell you the larger tires of the 285 reduced the appearance of lift when looking at the gap in the front fender well but over height is still the same after the 887s settled. If I were to do it again I would probably go with the Eibach springs to decrease settling of the OME springs but I'm not going to change it now. I've very happy with the truck as it is now.

    No intention to go back to 265 tires.

    If I need more power, I just press the accelerator a little more! And I do not use cruise control or automatic with 5% grades or more. That's why engineers gave us a semi-manual tranny and on downhill runs, downshifting instead of using brakes - minimizes heating up the brakes and having to deal with the consequences of that.

    On my '19 TRD OR 4X4 I just don't see, hear, or feel the issues many bring up. Nor did I have those issues in my brothers '18 Sports TRD when I drove it for a month in Colorado at 6,000-14,000 feet elevations.

    Thanks again for all the input! I ended up getting it done. Absolutely no rubbing and no CMC. All about the offset!
