    Im sure there is alot on this subject but, just a quick question. My 07 TRD Sport 4X4 has stock susp. it looks like the front sits a little lower than the rear. Is ther a spacer, leveling kit, etc. that i can get CHEAP to bring the fron up so that its level with the rear?

    Yeah all trucks are like that so if there is a load in the back it wont drop as much. If all you do is want to level it out, I would recommend getting some Billy 5100's for the front set at .85" of lift. Most guys on here says that pretty much levels the whole truck out.;) You can go with spacers, but then that will take you up 3"s in the front so thats to much. Unless your looking to lift the rear too.:rolleyes:

    Yeah just for the front adjustable shocks at Downsouthmotorsports, they are around $200 so still not to cheap.

    I would go with the bilsteins as well. You are going to pay around $200 plus for a leveling kit anyways unless you find one used.
