    hey everyone, i getting the leaf spring tsb pretty soon, and i was thinking a leveling kit would be a nice compliment to that, I'm just wondering if anyone has a favorite they would like to recommend. while price is not much of an issue, cheaper is always looked nicely upon. currently, i like the readylift 2.25'' "front strut extension" http://www.readylift.com/c-83-tacoma-suspension-leveling-kits-2005-2008-4wd-2wd-prerunner.aspx

    any feedback is greatly appreciated:)

    wat?
    if u want cheap, get a set of the poly 2.5" spacers on ebay for $70. its takes more time to install b/c u install a spacer above the coil and above the strut, but its cheaper and works!!

    as long as you don't need a spring compressor or anything other than the normal hand tools, i'm up for it.

    Bilstien 5100s.

    They ride great, are adjustable, and can give you up to 2.5" of lift. The TSB springs will settle A LOT. I know because I have them on my truck right now.

    I wouldn't recommend a part that I myself wouldn't use. I plan on ordering a set of 5100s next month.

    Ready lift is ok. Good quality. No sagging since install 2 months ago. $300.00 parts and install.

    But if had to do it again, those 5100's look sweet.

    But for now im happy, able to run 33's.

    FABTECH is coming around in a year...:D
