    Thanks man!

    If you are on the fence about 275 or 285, just get 285s. You’ll end up buying them eventually because they are the perfect size. I had 265s before and then just got 285s 6 months later. Plus you can get 285 KO2s in C rating so they are not as bad on gas mileage.

    It didn’t rub around town but it did while flexing and in reverse turning. I ended up removing the spacers and swapped the OEM mud flaps for RekGens. Now it doesn’t rub at all. The 4Runner TRD wheels I have are ET4 so that also helps a lot for not rubbing.

    Here is my lift parts:

    No UCAs or CV boot issues. I've moved on up to 888 coils now with new UCAs but my CV boots are fine so far.

    Ok, so I put the 5100s on my 2019 TRD OR DCLB with 285/75/16s on the stock OR wheels, and as predicted its rubbing the stock UCA at full lock. Should wheel spacers help fix this? What size spacers are people running?

    Dang I just realized you replied, I appreciate that! A have a few more miles left on my current tires once it’s time to change them I’ll be taking this list and going with this exact set up.

    Thanks again for sharing!

    Ride quality was like stock. I experienced no issues at all. Keep in mind that I did not off-road my truck to the extent that many do. Some field roads and out to check the deer stands and such is about it. No crawling/articulation type stuff...

    Hate to bring the thread from the dead but i just got a 2020 4CYL 4WD SX Tacoma. I really don't do any offroading, i drive on the beach to go fishing and a lot of camping trips. I was going to do a 2/1 lift, 2'' spacers in the front and a 1'' block in the rear that will be more than sufficient for how i use the truck. My question is for guys who have the same setup have you had problems with the needle bearing. I was wondering if i should throw in the ecgs bushing while i have it torn down.

    I'm looking at a 2/1 kit as well. My issue is I have a 200 pound bumper in front and topper on the rear. Eventually I will be getting a heavier coil and better shocks. But for right now Im debating a 2/1 or maybe a 3/1 for all the weight?

    Thoughts

    Old thread resurrected,lots of nice trucks.
    I’m planning to lift my 2021 SR5 1 1/2” in the front with a strut spacer,ordered the sway bar relocation bracket incase I need it.I have 1 1/2” tapered block for the rear.
    My question is for guys that have used blocks in the rear,what shocks are you running ?
    Gonna need something longer then stock so what’s a good OEM quality replacement?

    Just ordered the N3 from Rough Country,made for a zero to 2” lift so should be good.
    1 1/2” strut spacer in the front,have the sway bar relocate brackets if needed.Also have a differential drop kit for the front if needed.
    1 1/2” tapered lift block for the rear with the N3 extended shocks.
    I’ll post some pics in a couple weeks when I get the parts and get them installed.

    Great looking setup. Im way late to the party but i'm in need of a small lift so I can move up to 285's cause I need new tires and don't wanna stay the size i'm at. Are these the struts you bought? No springs correct?
