    I am looking just to lift my '07 PreRunner 3" to fit larger tires. Not really looking for off-road use, but I want something that is quality. I've been looking at the Ready Lift SST kit and the Toytec 3" lift with the coils and spacers up front and AAL in the rear. I have read Toku's lift guide extensively, but still undecided. I don't want to have to get new UCA if not necessary, but I don't want my alignment to be jacked up. Would appreciated suggestions. Wanting to fit 33's. Thanks.

    Sure if he wants perfectly good front tires to wear out in 10k miles. :rolleyes:
    Lifts change suspension geometry which drastically affects tire wear. I ruined a BRAND NEW set of tires following the "you won't need new UCA's" advice. An alignment to get 40K or more miles out of a set of tires is cheap insurance IMO. You'll end up with new UCA's sooner or later... unless you ditch the lift.

    The SST Readylift kit levels the truck which may require UCA's. Tacoma Prerunners have a Slight rake. DR. Rabbit was correct in pointing that out. You might want to look at the Readylift 2.25 Leveling Kit and the Readlift 1.0 rear block kit . That should lift your truck without affecting the rake. The SST Readylift is for Non-Prerunner Tacoma's. I'm planning on getting the Separate kits installed in the near future. When do you plan on installing your lift?

    Not OEM.
    I'm in agreement with Blanca06. I have the Ready-Lift leveling kit and 1 inch rear block. I think it states you can go up to 32" without cutting. Research the height of 285's, they'll look good with the lift. Got mine installed at 4WheelParts, alignment was great. Rides like stock. Good luck.

    In order to fit 33's you will need 3" of lift up front. Your alignment will be off and you will want to get new uca's. The readylift is a top plate spacer where as the toytec is a combo of a top plate and a preload spacer. The toytec will make the ride a little stiffer but not real bad. They are both pretty good kits but i tend to like the readylift stuff because it doesn't preload the coils and it's made out of STEEL not aluminum. If you must have 33's and want a spacer lift then i would suggest getting the readylift sst kit with the light racing uca's. You can get them at www.fatbobsgarage.com for $379.99(you must call them to get that price)

    not true you can fit 285/75/16 with the readylift 2.25 front leveling kit with very minor cutting of fender well splash guard. you need atleast a 1.5 " rear AAL also.

    ^^^ Maybe but why would you wanna stuff big tires on? It looks like crap imo. You need some wheel gap in order for your suspension to articulate.

    When you lift your truck you lose caster. This will not make your tires wear poorly. Your truck just will just have a tendency to wander and follow grooves in the road.
