    Hey guys. When I started this thread i didnt have my lift kit intalled. I know have it installed and here is my cv angles of the lift at 2.5. They dont seem that bad now. ome kit no top spacer. 2inch aal in back and now my truck stills lower in front. If i install the 1/2 top spacer for the front to lift it out and level it out at 3inch are my cv angles gonna be that bad. Would a 1/2 top spacer make that much of a differnce in the angle. I want to put it on so im level. If my cv boots rip are they that exspenvise to fix. I know the boot is only likw 20 but i didnt know if i sad to replace the cv boot axel too or not? Thanks guys.

    Don't you mean 1/4" spacer to raise it 1/2"? You've seen my CV angles at a full 3". Don't know about the cost or hassle of replacing the CV boot, about 6K miles on mine with lift and no problems. I prefer the front lower than the rear over level, and sometimes I wish I had a sun roof when wheeling so I could stand up and poke my head out the roof to see where I was going. The higher the front is in relation to the rear the less you'll see in front of you.

    Yes i mean that. Sorry. Ive seen your angles but you have a 4 banger, i have a v6 4x4 so i would think the cv angles would be different.( but I could be wrong). As yo you wanting it lower, I would like it higher. I hate seeing my truck lower in the front, I like it level. I think im gonna have a shop install it and see how my cv angles are. Thanks for the help.

    FYI , the Toytec top plate spacer kit sold with the longer studs and a pair of spacers are 10mm spacers and will give approx 3/4" of lift

    The 1/4" spacer sold to correct taco lean will give approx 1/2" of lift and is sold as a single ( ie get 2 ) and will not require longer studs

    3" lift will give the same CV angles regardless of engine weight. My 4Banger jut means that the 885s give me 3" where they only give you 2 1/2". No I don't want my front lower than it is, it's just that sometimes when wheeling all you see is sky and that would happen more with a level truck.
