    I don't really go off-road, but want to mount 285/75/16 tires on my '10 DC-TRD Sport. The Readylift seems to afford the clearance on 285s.

    It says the ride is the same as stock, but I dunno. I have the TRD suspension.
    Will the ride change at all?

    Could you do: Bilstein 5100s with the Readylift? How much would that $$ together?

    I've scoured the site, but hadn't really found specific answers to my questions.
    Thanks

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    I would save up for some ToyTec OME lift kit or Bilstein 5100's set at 2.5" w/ TSB AAL.

    the readylift is gonna ride stiff. you will need new uca's to get your alignment in an ideal range. I dont think you can run a top plate spacer with the billies unless you set them at 0. otherwise your uca will hit your coil.

    This guy is wrong, dead wrong. It will not ride stiff at all since it is a TOP PLATE SPACER not a PRELOAD SPACER.

    ^^^ With the readylift you will lose travel! thus making for a stiff ride. I have owned the readylift stuff and i know from experience! with a 3" spacer he WILL lose uptravel. making for a stiff jarring ride. dont believe all that "it maintains factory ride" hype. Its just not true!thanks
