    Top hat should still be the same. I think toytec provides longer studs in their kit to use stock nuts. The kit I have includes regular nuts, stock nuts would not work, unless you flip them upside down witch would be nonsense lol

    I'm not to keep debating a stupid topic. Cost me nothing to put new studs in and I know I won't have to worry about it

    I'm having the toytec spacers installed tomorrow, I downloaded the pdf that available online on how to install them and the new studs are for a 3 inch lift. It says only a 3 inch also. The studs that are in my struts now are definitely to short for the 1/2 inch spacer.

    I've got a 17 Pro, the offered suspension is great. I've added an SSO bumper and winch and a dual battery setup and lost 1/2 or so due to weight and would like to recover it. I think the toytec spacer is the right answer.

    I did the 3/4 spacers and an AAL from Toytec and I'm happy with the results. Getting the new studs in was probably the hardest part. A combination of setting the top plate on large sockets and a 1/2" extension as a punch if you will, proved to be the best route. I'm sure a shop with real tools or a press would be the way to go though.

    I have these from toytec, still haven't installed, I don't have a spring compressor yet. If I was to install these, when I go in for my first service could I ask for an alignment? Or are they gonna be difficult?

    Will the 1/4" spacer fit on stock TRD Shocks to correct driver side lean?

    None as of yet
    May be a silly question but is an alignment or anything else needed after doing a spacer lift?

    I want a small lift and spacers may be the perfect choice.

    Edit: Nevermind, I see these are only front lifts.

    I installed this on my truck! Very happy with the results. Leveled the truck out just about perfectly! It doesn’t look like some of the other ones that give the front too much lift. Hope this helps! I also installed it myself in a few hours. It was difficult other than compressed the springs in order to change out the top hat bolts.

    O shit... do I have to compress the springs? I wasn’t expecting that... how did you do it? Went to a tire shop? Did it yourself? I don’t have a spring compressor... I might have to buy one... any advice on that??

    I have compressed springs before but on a car a long time ago with those cheap spring compressor clamps...

    I used a loaner spring compressor through OReillys. Not too hard of a job! Just a little time consuming and some grunt. I didn’t have any impact tools, so I cranked on the compressors with a 1/4” Drive
