    i have an 05 prerunner.. getting some procomp mud terrains and some moto metal 951s on it soon..
    about 2 months ago the dealership offered a suspension upgrade to the TRD shocks and new leaf springs in the back only.. for free, i agreed not thinking about what it would change for looks..
    my problem is the back sits about 3.5" higher than the front now.. im kinda on a budget, so ive been looking at the front suspension spacers only to even it out or even get the front up a little higher than the back, but the largest spacers ive found are 3"

    Does anyone know if anyone makes spacers any bigger?

    If I'm not mistaken, a 1.25 inch spacer will raise the front end about 2.5 inches.

    I'm certainly no expert. I can only attest to what I have experienced first hand. I put 1.25 inch spacers (the kind that bolt on top of the struts) on mine and it raised it @ 2.5 inches. I was trying to get mine level, and after I did the spacers, the front was noticeabley higher than the rear. Even after I put 1 inch block on the rear, it was still higher in the front. I ended up getting the suspension TSB done and only now does it look level, with the blocks still there.


    You may want to wait until some others chime in that are more knowledgeable
    on suspensions than I am.
