    I want to level out my truck i have a DCLB trd or 4x4
    I read a little bit here and there about these and it was mostly good, didnt get much info on the exact amount of lift people are getting though, I know 2" might make me a bit nose high but since I have a 4WD I figured the extra weight may bring me back to 1.75" and put me perfectly level or closer to it at least...

    any thoughts?

    Nothing wrong with it. 2" usually levels off the 3rd gens pretty evenly, you just may get the front diff noise like most of us have and will have to install the ECGS bushing down the road.

    A spacer is a spacer is a spacer. No better or worse than any other chunk of metal out there.

    No.

    If his tire "fell out" it was due to installation error.

    I agree that spacers and cheap ebay stuff isn't really ideal, however, I don't do a lot of extreme off roading and I don't want to spend a lot money ( I do I just don't have enough of it) for a full suspension lift. For the mild off roading that I do and the mostly on road commuting the spacer should be fine. They CAN crack but its not very likely and I don't feel like spending 150 vs 50 is going to give me a much better quality spacer, it's just gonna give the vendor some extra money.
