    ok so i finally got my lift installed, im going to pick it up tomorrow.
    in the box of all the parts a set of spacers were in there that i took to UPS to get a shipping prince on them earlier in the week. Even though i didnt say anything about installing spacers they put them in. they said they called toytech and spoke with there tech and they told them to install them.
    my question is should i keep them in or have them take them out ? will it effect the ride at all? and will the nose be up to high ?

    this is the combo, billies front and rear, rear AAL OME 885Xs and LR control arms. these are the spacers http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=115&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    I too would like to know the answer to this question. I recently bought the OME kit with 881 coils. I have not installed the 1/4" spacers. Without the spacers, I got about 2" lift in the front. I am debating if installing the spacers will change the quality of the ride. The guy at Toytec said it will not.

    are yall talking about the front leveling kits spacers? if so i have def. noticed a difference in how it rides. one thing to make sure is that you get your sway bar drop too. turn your wheel all the way to the lfet/right and look how close the bar is to the coil. without the spacer itll be literally touching it (no bueno) ...
