    It's definitely more stiff. I've always liked a more harsh ride in my vehicles. Call me crazy, but I like feeling every bump in the road.

    The reason your truck is level now is because you did the TSB. That lifted your truck about 1-1.5" in the rear. I have the 1.5" spacer in back as well as the TSB suspension, and the pitch looks about stock (which I like).

    Braaap- unless you did the TSB also, keep your leafs.

    I thought that might have been why. Thanks Motorkopf.

    I would ultimately like to get some Wheelers Type B, or maybe some MB Razors (that I would have powder coated black,) or black Moto Metal 951s. But until then, I really like the TRD Off Road alloys, and am saving up for some BFG ATs.

    Hey man, you should post pics of the installation process. I plan on doing this to mine. (I hate the way it looks like im gonna scoop something up with my bullbar with the rear being so high after I got the TSB) Where did you get your spacers?

    How big are your spacers?

    And how long did it take you?

    I got my spacers from Toyteclifts.com, and they have illustrated instructions both on their website and included in the packages.

    And Dave, I bought the 3" spacer lift kit with 1.5" block kit for the rear. The TSB took care of lifting the rear however, so I didn't install them. The front from start to finish took me almost 6 hours including lunch.

    How did you compress the springs to get the spacers on? Did you do it yourself or did you have it professionally done?

    I got a set of spring compressors from the loan-a-tool program at Auto Zone and compressed them myself...by hand, no air tools. If you have an air impact, I highly suggest using that.

    needs new shoes, i was wondering how the spacers lift would feel on the newer models, i had the toytec on my 00 taco and it was way to stiff, i ended up getting adjustable front coil overs, and longer rear shocks.
