    Did my son's truck with above lift. Easy kit to install and maintains stock ride which was really important to him. Then he was kind enough to take my spare FJ Cruiser rims and tires to put on his truck. I think it came out really nice but it sits really high. Spacer front with AAL rear, after toyota did TSB on rear leaf springs.

    Looks great. I always like to see when people do the work instead of going to a shop, like I did. Nice job.

    that is a super simple kit that looks good/rides good. It was the first lift I had. I recommend not off roading that kit hard though. when I uninstalled it one of the studs in the front spacers was completely broken off and two others broke off when i unbolted the spacer from the coil over top plate. I'm hoping that was just a fluke because i got that lift when it was a newer company back in early 2006.

    good job with the install looks awesome on the white DC LB

    Where did you get the door bumpers? (black stips on the door) Did they come with the truck or was that aftermarket?

    I got them from Toyota directly at www.trdparts4u.com They had really good prices on these and a case of filters.

    Thanks it is a good way to teach my son about the truck and what is involved. We did the lift, side bars, tonneau cover, bug shield and bed cleats together, along with oil changes. I got real lucky he is a real good kid. All county in wrestling and track and still makes Deans list with his grades. He deserves the truck.:)

    Good to know, I purchased this style kit because he will be commuting back and forth to college daily. He is not going to wheel with the truck, he would never take the chance to damage it. He loves the truck and has always taken great care of everthing we have ever got him.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I originally installed that lift on my truck, but after a while I found that the AAL that came with it flattened out, and the front binds a bit when offroad(UCA and Coils contact and there is some weird noises at times too). I'm installing a different front lift(Toytec 3" w/ OME 885 coils) when I get the money for the OME shocks since others have recommended doing them all at once. I got the TSB and a different, long style AAL that is made by Alcan now, along with some bilstein 5100 rear shocks(required some extenders for better flex and not to top-out) and it rides a bit better and seems to handle loads better too.

    Interesting when I did the lift, strut was in and sway bar was disconnected and rotor was hanging fully extended and the upper control arm was not hitting the coil. I would think that is about as extended as it can be.
