    will this lift kit, lift as well as level? http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    if not how much lift do i need up front to level out?

    can i install a level kit and then a lift kit on top of that?

    if this kit wont level out too, are there any lift kits that will come out level also? links?

    sorry for the noob questions, new to the truck scene and trying to take in as much possible.

    and before i get reemed, i did search and couldnt find any specific answers to my quiestions.

    ALSO, any issues i should be expecting? anything that should deter me from buying this truck i should be picking up next week?

    ok, 33"s are plenty big.

    how about a leveling kit and then a 2-3 inch body lift with that? would that work ok, i mainly just want more clearance for tires.

    if anyone knows how much AAL i would need to level it out with the billstein 5100's set at 3" please feel free to chime in.

    also, what are these UCA's something or other i have seen people talking about? i assume it has something to do with the steering because everyone talks about the truck wandering on the road after lift without UCA

    Not sure an AAL would give you enough lift for 33s.

    UCAs are Upper Control Arms. If you are going 3 inchs or over it is a good idea to get new UCAs

    not really in need for the functionality of the suspension lift. shes gonna be a pavement princess with light wheeling, nothing serious

    body kits are not prefered. 5100s with new coils will give you about 3 inchs in the front and a new leaf pack will give you 3 in the back.

    Eibach coils are used a lot on here. Also I think OME is used too. not sure about which coils exactly but im sure someone will give some more input on those.
    All Pro sells leaf packs and so does OME (Old Man Emu) With those coils, 5100s and a new lead pack it should be pretty level

    Pro comp full 3" kit gives exactly that.. 3" of lift and levels. New shocks, coils, rear leafs, and hardware for under 500 bucks. I'm running 33's with no issues.

    There are lots of lifts that will level the truck I did the toytec ultimate kit and love it it has adjustable height coil overs in the front and aal in the rear with blistein shocks all the way around the truck rides much better than it did from the factory and clears 33s I like that it is adjustable so if/when I get a plate bumper I can undo the sag in the front.
