    Just looking to level out the 2009 regular cab. Currently have 31.5"s (265/70/17) and looking to upgrade to roughly 33"s (270/75/17). This leveling kit is only $65 with FREE shipping and i can install is and align after in my school auto shop with expertise, but i will be the one installing. Anyone have any opinions/experience with this company? Ride quality? I know the 5100's would be better but for now i cant afford it.

    Thats a TOp plate spacer. If you hit a pot hole with one of those installed, you can break your shock/s. Consider this.....YOu have one of the more expensive mid size trucks out there. You could have saved money by buying a Nissan, but you spent a little more for a better vehicle. Do you want to keep the vehicle suspended off the road with a 5 to 10 dollar part? Your better off saving your money, and doing ti right. You save money by not having broken parts afterwards.

    I see your point here...and i do mild off roading (small rocks, small holes) but i've done endless researching on trying to level out the yota an inexpensive but reasonable way. I understand spacers aren't the highest of quality but, are there how would everyone suggest leveling it out? Don't wanna ride "bro" but as leveled as possible

    The least expensive way to do it right, is use the 5100 shocks.

    Sounds good thankyou. Would you suggest upgrading the coilovers at the same time?

    The stock coils are fine. If you want to spend more money, you can get Old Man Emu coils (884's), but then you also would need an AAL for the rear, along with new shocks for the rear. If you want to spend some mroe money, you can go a full OME kit, or a coilover kit from Fox, King, Icon, Camburg, etc. The list goes on. Search around the site, and see what others have come up with for their trucks. Check out the pics of the trucks, and see what you want to do. Being as you went from wanting a spacer, to considering 5100's, and new coils, it seems you may still have many questions that remain un answered.

    Thankyou very much for your expertise! I may save up for the 5100's all around and once i settle myself in my new apartment ill upgrade the coilovers and leafs.

    The 5100's on all 4 corners is a very good start. Downsouth Motorsports sells them for about 299 for all 4 (2 front, 2 rear).

    IIRC, they give TW members a discount. However, there was a price increase, so its best to check. Call, or PM, and ask for Marco. 339 is still a great price for 4 of them.

    How much lift can you get by putting the 5100s front and back? Is an alignment needed after?
