    A bit of a back ground. 06DC non-tsb, shity leafs, shitty shocks= horrible ride. Installed over the weekend in 5 hours 5100's @1.75" and AAL in the rear. Ride has improved ten-fold. Have to get them on the rear now.

    Anyway gained about 1.75' in front approx. and the rear1 3/8" overall the truck sits about leevel off by about 3/8- 1/2" Did the install with the help of a very knowledgable member from another toyota forum. Had the alignment done and the caster is the only thing off. The manager at the dealer did this for me, and they made sure as to put on the work order all over the place truck has lift to the suspension. Then when I go pick up the truck the desk help tell me I need to have new cam bolts washers and nuts because they were siezed and need new bushings. Will be ok for the time beinmg but recommend getting this done in the future. Asked how much was told 484.

    Ok question now has anyone ever heard the cam bolts being bad? I was told because of the Pa. weather was the cause. Sorry have owned suvs and trucks never had this issue before. If bushing do go this fast at 50K miles. Who can recommend a good place to get the polyurethane bushings as a kit. May as well do the sway bar and what ever else I can get.

    Oh and I must have really lucked out because, before this lift at 70mph on highway had a vibration in the rear, now its gone. No vibrations, no shakes and no shimmy's, steering feels solid as before was loose and constantly fighting it to keep straight. Take some pics tomorrow and post them for everyone to enjoy or bust balls.

    I can tell the suspense has been killing everyone. Nothing great or fantastic compared to some on here. But I got just the right amount of lift that I was looking for. Also, anyone ever have to replace the cambolts in the a-amrs. I was told I needed mine replaced because they were seized. Sounds a bit fishy to me, but looking to see if anyone ran into this problem. Actually the pics don't seem like it sits as high when I see it in person. There is a huge gap between the top of tire and the fender. perfect for stuffing bigger tires and new wheels in there next year.
