    I am new to wheelin' and I am just getting started on my "build" I need new tires now and plan on 33" but cannot afford a full suspension lift. I would like to use a cheaper spacer type lift as a temporary "fix" until I can afford a better lift. My issue is that I have a topper and with the stock suspension, my truck is level. I know I can get the 3" in front, but how do I get a full 3-4" in the rear?

    oh OZ you're such a pessimist!

    you can get a new leaf pack buy you're obviously wanting to take the cheap route which I would have to agree with OZ here, save your cash but if you want to slap the cheapest piece of junk underneath your truck get a 3" block lift in the rear.

    but I wouldn't.

    Why do you need 3-4 in the rear? 2" add-a-leaf will be more than adequate for 33's with a shell. 85 bucks from toytec.com http://toyteclifts.3dcartstores.com/Rear-ToyTec-Add-A-Leafs_p_10.html

    Edit: Spacers are all bad in the rear on these trucks. They have axle wrap/driveline vibration issues on stock suspension and blocks make them much worse. Add-a-leafs are so much better for not much more price.
