    Lots of people run spacers. Even the dealership installed lifts are spacers. Theyre not ideal. But, Spacers have been used for a long time on a lot of trucks.

    if you are set on lifting your truck and that is in your budget go ahead. i know people who have been running spacers and off road all the time. the ride is stiff but you know that

    I've gotta 3" spacer lift and the ride is okay...But keep in mind that spacer preloads your struts and can cause some serious damage if you hit a bump or rock hard enough!! I'm saving up my money to get the Bilstein 5100s and OME 885 Coils

    You have non-progressive stock springs. Your ride will be a lil more bareable. I suggest saving up for OME ToyTec coil spring lifts but if you are set on spacers make sure it is the sammiched type between the coils not sit on top of the coilover assembly.

    Spacers are a great option if you both your shock and spring are still in good condition, which on a 2010, they are. ;)

    Just don't use a spacer or a block in the rear. The Toyota leaf packs need as much help/support as possible. We only recommend the Add A Leaf for the rear. We sell a 1.5 and a 2 inch AAL depending on how high you wanted to go.

    Here's what I'm referring to.
