    I'm posting this in a new thread so it dosnt get lost in the many pages of the suspension thread (although I do suggest going through that too)

    I also suggest checking out this thread

    Note: The surface is not flat. I realized this wayyyyyyyyy to late. I suggest looking at the gaps between the wheels and fenders.

    How my front spacer looks (Sometimes people's are seated all the way causing installation fun)

    Here is a look at my stock brake line length (longer ones are on the list)
    20170528_193529.jpg

    So I here's how it sits currently
    The front is the same however I am a 6 lug in the rear. I used a 2016 leaf pack with the overload leaf removed. I have a 2007 trd off-road elocker axle. I have a driveshaft spacer to make up some extra space as well as some leaf spring clamps to help control the axle wrap spring overs have. My rims are now specific to the front and back. I had 5 lug adapter in the rear but they were a big hassle when I need to do a brake job and had to be cut off.

    Goodyear duratracs 33/12.r15 on cragar soft 8's 4in bs and -13mm offset. My Mickey Thompson's had to big of an offset at -44mm so the 33's rubbed

    Hmmmm...I like it alot lifted up...looks more like a truck than a car with a bed.

    For my personal preferences I think I might go a size bigger, or at least something with a wider sidewall and not necessarily a wider tread....although I have no idea what I'll end up doing

    At the beginning it felt higher but now it feels normal. There is a slight bit of more swaying because the center of gravity is higher but I like how it rides. I've realized I could have gone up in tire size and will but for now it I like having the gaps more room for travel.

    I didn't notice any difference with 235s as far as power but the height and grip was a nice change

    The trd bilstiens are pretty easy to get and pretty cheap if you keep an eye out locally. I've gotten a set for $30 and another one for a case of beer. As for installation I got them in without jacking anything up because I was lazy.

    Now my fox shocks I just got I had to jack my truck up a lot and apply some persuasion. (I've been meaning to add this too )

    Here's the shocks next to the trd bilstiens

    Here's the top view it's about an inch bigger

    And finally for the clearance shot

    I want to say stiff but that's not a proper way of explaining it. I have hardly anything body roll and when it moves down it only does it once. They were definitely worth it for the price I got them for. :D

    Thanks man


    The TRDs are a lot better than stock if you can get them cheap (like I got mine for a case of beer) but if your going to pay more Id look towards the 5100's or any 6 lug shock designed for no lift.

    The long term plan is a regear with a trutrac and possibly 32's lol
