Anyone got a small spacer?

    '07 Double Cab 4x4 Long Box. I just put new BFG All Terrains on in 265/70/17 LR C and there is a little bit of rubbing on the left side mudflap. I already have the "TSB Springs" because my truck is a Canadian truck which came with them stock. So a very slight lift to get rid of the rubbing and slighty level the truck (however I still like the looks of the rear sitting slightly higher than the front), is in order.

    I'm at the point where I might want to consider replacing my shocks too so my options are either the spacer linked below, or Bilstein 5100's.

    The spacer (3/4" lift advertised?) : http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    I'd kinda prefer to do the spacer because it's cheaper, and I can just replace the TRD Bilsteins with more TRD Bilsteins (have a family member who works at a dealership and I can get them cheap) but I'm open to ideas. I'm mainly interested in hearing how the spacer performs ride quality wise and if you're happy with it. It's not much of a spacer so it shouldn't change things too much though.

    But I AM a fan of Aftermarket Bilsteins. I put some Bilstein HD shocks on my 93 pickup when I had it and they were awesome shocks.

    Toyota's are awesome
    Like you said, the top plate spacer really won't effect the ride that much and for the simplicity of it, I would go with that spacer. Part of the advantage to upgrading your shocks to the new 5100's is the shock is longer, so it does ride better!
