    Spacers suck. Spend the extra $$ and get proper shocks/springs. You can get OME for $750 from toytec.

    The common knowledge here is Avoid top plate spacers at all (low) cost. Go in for new shocks, coils and add a leafs.

    Check out Headstrong Off-road. Marie will set you up right.

    I began my lift hunt looking at toytec spacers, did about three months of research before ordering my kit (OME coils, Bilstein shocks, Deaver AAL). Don't take the cheapest route. Spend a couple hundred and do it right. You deserve it, your passengers deserve it and your truck deserves it.

    If money is a concern, start with 5100's and add to it over time.

    Poor ride quality, reduced travel, potential to fuck up other suspension components, etc etc

    Going over 2.5" means you'll need aftermarket Upper Control Arms ("UCAs") to correct alignment issues.

    Just get some 5100's, set to .85 to start with until you have the money to invest in AAL's, UCA's, coils, etc.

    I run spacers on mine no problem, if you don't offroad much, it's no big deal,

    as for upper control arms, they are to help get your alignment back within specs, many running 3'' lift are still within spec without upper control arms
