    I think it has to be a 5-lug, right? Or are you being sarcastic?

    To my knowledge, all 2WD non-PreRunners are 5-lug.

    It's not gonna fit. I don't think anyone has attempted to "make it fit" as of yet. You could be the first :notsure:

    The angles are completely different. You would have to weld in a new shock tower and change the lca mounts. I attempted to incorporate a trd coilover in my 5lug but im just going to wait and get the mid travel total chaos setup.

    If youve got the money of course, but for a decent lift and upgraded suspension tc mid travel. READYLIFT is no better than a body lift. If anything it decreases your suspension performance.

    What is your ultimate goal that you hope to achieve if you could do this swap?

    um yes and no.

    springs will work. I am running 4x4 leafs. they will drop your truck though. so that would be kinda stupid if your aiming to lift your truck. you would need an axle flip kit to get any lift out of it.

    To the average person using a fatbobs or ready lift it comes with a leaf spring for the rear. Thats where the lift comes from. The 6 lug shocks will now fit the rear due to the increased ride height. Being that there longer they wont be as maxed out and gives better ride quality. The ready lift comes with longer shocks as is but its a way to save money and have bilstein which are decent as opposed to the fatbobs shocks I really know nothing about. Not real sure where you got the dropping the truck stuff from unless im wrong
