    I'm new here and I just got my Tacoma a few weeks ago and I'm looking to install a leveling kit to get rid of that front end dip look. It's a '14 PreRunner 2WD, Anyone with a good kit that could provide me with information? I'd really appreciate it!

    I used the ReadyLift 2" kit that relocates the front diff, not that you're worried about that, and have no issues. I don't do much off road, my 4 wheel is for snow mostly. IMG_4125.jpg

    To me it just makes it look like the back is sagging. Then if you put anything in the back the front points to the sky

    The pic was taken on my drive way which slopes down to the left, I'll try to take pics on a level surface. The back is 1 inch taller.

    If you just want to level I'd get some 5100s and set the front to .85" if you want to lift it a bit you should get 5100s with OME 884 coils and an AAL. That will give you about 2"

    Just what I did except with Eibach front coil and 1/4 driver side spacer.

    Yep eibach coils are the other option but they are a bit stiffer than the OMEs

    Best? That's subjective.

    But a very good option without being excessively expensive would be OME 883s either on your factory shocks or with new Bilsteins or NitroChargers.

    On a PreRunner I expect OME 883s up front would make it sit almost perfectly level.

    I love my 884s but they'll make it nose-high if you do nothing to the back, especially since you're not 4WD.

    How much is that likely to cost?

    I went with 5100s on my 2014 DC / OR (set to 1.75") and I'm happy with it so far. I use the truck to commute and bomb around hunting trails on a regular basis without any problems. Only other changes from stock are 265/75 BFG AT KO2 tires.

    stock for now.
    I'm getting to this feed late but do you guys know if anyone makes a strut spacer thats 1.5" ? All i can find is 2" and that seems like it would not be level with the back. I have a pre runner and was just wanting to have it sit level. Not really wanting to preload my stock coils either with a coil spacer or 5100's cranked up. I'm on a budget otherwise id go the better route of new coils.

    Why not just pay $200 and get Bilstein 5100s which you can install yourself, and are height adjustable? They're way better than a strut spacer and actually improve the ride instead of hurting it. They can be set to stock height, 0.85", 1.75" or 2.5" using your stock coils. Just my 2¢

    I'm most worried why you have to post the same thing in so many threads.
