    I'm about to pick up the 3" leveling kit from Low Range (http://www.lowrangeoffroad.com/toyo...a-tacoma-by-low-range-off-road-lr-lrtaco.html) but even when I had full access to a shop in the military I suck at suspension work. Anyone free on August 19th (Saturday) that wants to help me out? I want to give as much notice as possible.

    I have an unhealthy amount of bourbon and booze and all of the pizza you can eat until blood no longer pumps through your arteries.

    Anyone wanna help a brother out?

    Where are you doing this? At your garage or you know a shop? @fatfurious2 @EatSleepTacos we can make it a big mod day! Everyone bring their cars!

    I was thinking my garage (in Gainesville) I have a decent set of tools but nothing extravagant. If anyone has a better idea or place I'm game.

    I just put a 3" leveling kit on mine. Makes the back look lower than the front "squat".. I hate it and will be putting some blocks in the back. Go with 2" if you want level.

    What have you heard that's bad? AAL's can increqase carrying capacity, whereas blocks can cause axle wrap.

    I can't do it then, but hopefully someone else can help! BTW if you're mechanically savvy, you should hopefully be able to do it yourself if no one else can since you said you've got the tools. Here's a great video on how to do it.

    Ashburn isn't far from my place at all. I work in OneLoudon and I drive there from home (Gainesville) every day. If you could help out that would be awesome.
