    Hey guys,

    I have searched on here and havent found a solid answer yet, Im sure it has been discussed to death tho so sorry.....

    I have my '11 DC 4X4 and Im looking to do a quick 1.25 to 1.5 inch front spacer/rear block lift. Im looking online and am thinking to put together the lift from daystar. I could do the full 2.5 lift but would rather have just a simple 1 to 1.5 inch lift all around.

    My question is if I go with the 1 inch rear block and 1.25 front spacer will this be level? This will produce the full 1 inch all around? Im thinking my rake is about 3/4 of an inch so from thinking this over I might need larger spacers up front. What do you all think?! Any solid combinations to produce a level lift :confused:

    Thanks! :D

    aaaaand there is the opinion of 97% of tacomaworld.com. spacers are god awful, but yes you will probably be levelish.

    edit: 1" block in back = 2" of lift. make sure you take that into consideration.

    1" in front and nothing in the rear would get you about level.

    And if you want to do a little reading about spacers:

    I have spacers in the front and aal in the back and when I installed the lift my ride quality inproved, maybe I just got lucky. But I would go with what was said about some 5100's. You could probably get a set-up for a little over $300.

    Ya I know thats exactly what I've found to be true and what I was originally planing on doing. I know that is the best option for a simple quality lift. This option is just soooo cost effective haha.

    At work we replace broken spacer lifts on Toyotas every once in a while. Same old same old, broken in the same spot everytime! Then they learn because we hook them up with the 5100's!
