    Def. go Toytec, I just ordered Coilovers from them and also Total Chaos UCA's from DownSouth. I hate my spacer lift, made the ride real stiff, and harsh. But If you go with Toytec, I would go coil lift or there Coil Overs. and ofcourse AAL in the rear.:)

    Just throwing this out there, as Im a bit grumpy this morning.......SO......


    I find it funny sometimes that people will spend Bunch-O-Coin on Stereos, Superchargers, Wheels, Fuzzy Dice, whatever, but when it comes to the actual hardware that holds the truck UP, off the ground, and can directly affect the vehicle handling, saftey, etc., people want to do it fo $5.00...........

    it's because people don't give two shits about what other people tell them is safe, or what functions properly off road, they just want to make there dicks seem bigger when they back into the parking space at the sonic friday night.

    The 2 ways I suggested would be a good way to go man! C/O's or just OME coil lift with OME shocks, and an AAL in the rear. Cant go wrong! Im still waiting on my C/O's and UCA's.:)

    nope! as long as you get an alignment done you should be ok. The ride might be a bit stiffer, but not bad, like mine. Some have said it actually made there ride better then stock. But It will be a great set up for ya!

    Depends on how high your gonna lift the front, and how you want your truck to sit. If your gonna lift it the full 2.5", but want your truck to ride with the front higher than the rear, no need for an AAL. BUT, if you want it level, you'' need an AAL.

    With the Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit -- will this cause any issues with the CV joints? Is there anything else that one would need to purchase to make this workable?

    Thanks
