    3in. Ruff Country suspension lift, front push bar, step rails, undercover bedcover, 305/60 Nitto Terra-Grapplers on 18in moto-metal 951s
    OK, so I just replaced a 2in. leveling kit on my 2008 Tacoma with a brand new Ruff Country 3in. suspension lift kit. I'm digging the new ride height, however, the rear of the truck now sits higher than the front. Is there any way for me to lift the front of the truck so that it sits level or possibly a little higher than the back or will i have to remove the rear lift blocks to achieve the desired effect?

    The rear might settle if the shocks are new. Mine settled a full inch in about 500 miles but i had also installed new leaf packs at the same time. If not get shorter blocks? U really wouldnt want to go more than 3" in the front. Thats about the max these trucks can safely handle without droping the front cross member due to cv angle. Hope this helps- just speaking from my own experience.

    I've had the lift with the new shocks for two weeks, so i think it's settled about as much as it is going to. But i'm starting to think replacing the 2in. blocks with 1in. ones may do the trick..

    So u've got a 3" lift in the front and a 2" rear but back is sitting higher? That should have put it level. Are they the stock leaf packs? How is the front lift achieved i.e... spacers, longer coilovers?
