    2012, std cab, 5 lug, 2.7, 5 speed
    Built for maximum low end torque, tooter II.VII intake manifold spacer, LCE long tube header, Injen long tube intake, 2,900 rpm torque peak.
    I removed these 1.25" front leveling spacers when I went from 245/75/16 to 235/60/16 tires, as they were no longer needed for wheel well clearance.

    Although they came off of a 2012 Tacoma 2x4 5 lug, they likely fit some other years and models as well. The linear space between each threaded stud and each hole is 96mm. They install on top of the complete strut assembly and are positioned between the strut and the top of the strut tower. They mildly raise the front end 1 1/4 inches without altering the spring compression rate.

    Asking $80 including shipping, or $65 local pickup.

    If you can see the triangle of three bolts on the top of one of your front struts that hold it on, and they are each separated by 3 3/4 inches, it should fit just fine. (the center one holds the shock on)

    The leveler kit modestly raises the front 1 1/4 inches by raising the frame above the strut without altering the spring compression.

    im without my truck for a week (repairing the deer hit) so i cant measure it right now... do you have the name of the company that makes them or where you got them maybe i can check it out? if they will work for a 2012 i'll take them.


    or could someone hook me up and measure their 4x4 to see if these will work :)

    They're made by ReadyLift. These 2 inch front Readylifts are on ebay.

    Ah, found the whole kit. They also came as a kit with add a leaf rear levellers.

    I know those are the ones because I have the rear add a leafs.

    thanks for the info tooter! i looked for them on ebay and didnt find the answer to the 2wd work on 4wd question...

    if someone could please verify the number of studs (3) and distance between the studs ( 3 3/4in) that would be a huge help! i wont have my truck back till friday.

    tomorrow going to try and go to the toyota dealer and measure one on the lot. hopefully they will work i just need a small 1in-1.5in lift up front to clear some different tires/wheels (265/70r17 with offset wheels). i dont wheel my truck so a spacer should be fine till i go OME when factory suspension starts to break down a little.

    Do you have a picture of your truck with the spacer lift? Also if the spacer it's self is 1.25 in that would give the front 2.5 inches of lift correct?

    Sorry... not very definitive ones because the tires were changed concurrently. The lift was very mild.

    With front spacers:

    Without front spacers:

    I don't think that these give any more lift than just the 1.25 inches of lift because they fit on top of the strut between it and the underside of the strut tower so there's no multiplier effect as the strut itself is unaltered as is the spring rate.

    thanks... but the 2x4 vs 4x4 i'm still unsure of and i dont want to end up with too much lift. think i'll probably just go 5100's and set them at 1.75. these look like a great cheap way to clear some tires though

    I am pretty dang sure the six lug, strut equipped trucks are the same, 2x4 or 4x4 doesn't matter....

    Laterzzzz....

    No problem. :)

    You are aware that 1.75 is more lift than 1.25? ;)
