    Have not installed this set up, but I can say around here RC gets no love. The kit you are looking at is better than some of their other stuff and they have improved quality a bit recently. For on road use only, this would work. Blocks in the rear whether on road or off road isn't the best option when an AAL is nearly the same price as some blocks that are likely made like crap. I suggest just going Bilstein 5100's all around with an AAL. A few hundred dollars more but a better quality and will still fit exactly what you want.

    If it’s just for looks, just get spacers and blocks. Why spend the money on kits when a couple hundred in spacers is alllllllllllll you need.

    If you keep the OEM coils, a set of front and rear Bilstein 5100's is about $460.00 give or take where you buy it from. Then you can decide to use a rear block or go AAL. So realistically that would be even cheaper than your OP, and better quality I would say.

    I have the same kit on my 2005 Prerunner. The kit rides fine for me and install wasn't too bad. You could do worse for the price. Is it going to ride like Kings? No. But if it is what your budget allows, will it provide a decent upgrade over stock? Sure will.
