    I have been doing some recent upgrades to my 2014 Tacoma and I was looking into getting a 2 inch leveling kit in the front and 1 inch in the rear. Posting because I don't want to do this install on my own and I am leaning towards taking it to a shop to get it done professionally. What would be the cost of labor for the install? Also adding the links to front and rear leveling kits below for opinions. Thanks!

    Why a rear level kit? Isn't the idea of a leveling kit to bring the front of the truck up to be level with the stock height of the rear?

    I don't really recommend blocks or spacers, annoying, finicky, and cause problems.
    Can't beat the price though.

    none of those products are "upgrades".

    After a couple of videos that I have watched, I am under the impression that adding the 2 inches on the front end actually makes the truck sit higher than in the rear. Adding the rear leveling kit will make the heights even. I am not certain though.

    Instead of assuming and guessing, recommend you first measure how YOUR truck is currently sitting. On each wheel measure the vertical distance from the center of the wheel hub up to the fender and report back. See this post for reference: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/hub-to-fender-measurement-on-stock-2016.405255/#post-11350704

    Also, some more details on your truck would help (i.e. model, trim, motor, 2wd/4wd, etc.).
