    The title explains it all. I had this on before I made the upgrade to Bilsteins (5100's) on all corners. So of course it came off a 2006 Tacoma PreRunner TRD Sport Double Cab. They worked out great for the added lift but without the expense and provided the better clearance for the larger tires. I don't remember the brand spacer kit but I did pay around $150 for it. They are a little less than 2" tall.

    Thanks everyone. BTW, feel free to bump! :D

    I'll assume shipping to be around $15.
    I'll leave it to you guys in TW to make an offer.

    I love the 5100's. No shadow of a doubt, there is a change in ride quality. To boot, it did extremely well off-road.

    Spacers seem to have a pretty bad rep in TW.

    Way to help me make a sale. They're not that bad. After all I had them on my truck and kept the factory ride. I simply wanted it leveled off and couldn't afford the $500 for new 5100's all around and installed. This was just as good for me. A person on a budget who wants the look.

    All I want is to level out the front. With that I should be able to put a larger tire on as well.

    I ran 3" spacers with 33's on my 08 Double Cab - they work perfectly, and are a cheap fix instead of a suspension lift.

    not hard, just long (using only hand tools). Pop the top ball joint - it makes it so much easier = it goes right back together and totally helps reinstalling the shock.

    You will need to rent a spring compressor (AutoZone).

    No spring compressor needed for the spacers being sold here. They install on Top of the Top Plate. Pull the shock assembly off the truck, put those on, then re install.
