    well what i really wana do right now and i think what im going to do before summer is i really wana do some sort of a front end lift now i have been looking thought this site and others and i have come to realize the best kinda lift that i can do is the toytec lift now idk if the 3" lift is going to be to much because i really wana just level out my truck and stick some of the trd sport rims on it with a nice set of tires i have that part figured out with the tires but what i really wana know is with the lift now i see u did a 3 inch lift and a diff drop and i dont wana stress my front end to much u know but what i also plan to do is a light bar and a intake and a custom exhaust

    if all you wanna do is level your ride....go with a set of bilstein 5100's all the way around. im sure someone here will tell you what settings are stock,and which ones will make the front end level. by the way....welcome to tw!!!!

    Rear leaf TSB and some spacers up front would work. Probably the cheapest route, if cost is an issue (always is with me)
    With this option, there would be no need for a diff. drop.

    not exactly sure on that man......just do a search on the product and see what you can find as the best price. performance products has them listed, but im not too sure of the price. maybe someone who has them will chime in!!

    There are a lot of inexpense options/combinations out there that you can install yourself if you have some mechanical abillity and relatively basic tools.

    hardly i live on a farm and i would really just like a more level look to it and then if i ever did do some light off roading and or go thoguht the snow i dont really have to worry because i will get that extra clearance my bigest thing is leveling it like im thinking a 2.5" spacer to be safe for my ball joints and things like that and i would like the sport rims because i like the look of them over the stock 1s i have

    wat?
    u can get a 2.5" polyurethane spacer in the front off ebay for around $70. and if u get the tsb done in the rear, then thata 1.25" of lift in the rear and it'll be pretty much level
