    ok like i said im looking at a few 2005 PreRunners 4x2 4L 4-6's plan on buying once i get back on dry land sometime around oct end of month time frame. i plan on driving this bad boy str8 from dealership to the shop to have a 3" lift put on it. you should know i have absolutely no clue what im looking at buying here other than talking with my divo (truck lifting guru of full size trucks) and reading these forums. sounds to me like the best quality lift from my understanding of what i have read.
    Front:
    Donahoe Racing Suspension Kit: 1,049.99

    Rear:

    Wheeler's 1.5" Lift 3 Leaf Progressive Add A Leaf Kit: 149.95

    Is this all i need for a 3" lift all around that is lvl?
    or do i still need the billstein 5100's for the rear too?
    trying to do it right the first time....pretty lost here.
    never raised a truck only put frame on pavement.:cool:

    When you get them to install your lift you may also want the diff drops, axle shims and the hanger bearing drop along with the extended rear brake lines.

    hmm any good namebrand i should buy or brands i should stay away from? Im not too familiar with "axle shims" could you elaborate? This is going to be permanent and done right the first time i want to make sure i have everything to do the install at one time. I will probably be doing this install myself it doesnt look too hard and i have access to a lift and all the tools i need. Plus free help provided that i provide the beer.

    Go with the OME 3" lift medium. You can get the entire package for under $1k. You don't need any kind of hanger or axle shim but you would be better off with the diff drop spacer. If you you plan to wheel then the brake line extensions wouldn't hurt but they are extra I think? Hope this helps. Contact TRDparts4U with any questions, ask for Gerone or Jacque. Tell them what you have and what you would like and they will take care of you.
