    so I have a situation, I have different opinions all over this forum. I just got. A 2017 SR5 with 14k Miles. The suspension I love but I want to level the front probably 2 inches. Now i don’t know if I should go all in for a whole front kit or Coil spacers which I hear great things about and also not great things about. My friend told me that the spacers are just a cheap way of leveling my truck but I wanna know what experienced 3rd gen Taco owners say THANK YOU!!!

    If you’re not off-roading and lifting for aesthetics, go with spacers.

    Alright, thank you. I’m planning too off-road it at least a couple times a year but I work full time so It won’t be more than 5 times at least

    2" in the front you may want to look into a 1.0" spacer in the rear as well. I did a lift in the front and ended up with this "bro-lean" thing where my truck was now squatting to the rear a bit. That look drove me nuts personally. I got a set of 1.5" spacer blocks put in the rear and that got things back to more of the stance i was looking for. You can see the Bro lean on the first pictures and the result after on the second page.

    As a side note I tow and carry gear for work with me often. So got a set of 610 Sumo springs put in as well. The ride is stiffer but it doesnt squat when i have a load in the bed or towing nearly as much at all. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00O4GD38M

    heres the thread i had on this very subject a number of months ago https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/should-i-bump-the-rear-up.541219/
