What's the best level kit and maybe wheel spacer you can buy?

Can't speak to wheel spacers but I have 2" inch Ready Lift installed on front end and have had no problems. Install was easy and clean. They have kits for your Tundra.

Bilstein 5100 ride-height adjustables are great for the Tundra. Much better than a leveling spacer.

No wheel spacer required, just choose aftermarket wheels with the backspacing you're after.

I have a 2010 Tundra that I put the Old Man Emu suspension on. It rides great off road as well as on. I have heard to many horror stories about the Bilstein shock failing.

Guess I got lucky then because I've got 128K on my 2008 and they've been on since 20K. They've seen their fair share of off-road in that time as well. Not bad for about a $200 investment.

So i guess there's two ways of lifting a truck shocks/springs and blocks. Is this correct?

And the reason i'm also asking about wheel spacers is because the tundra rims look sucked in. I'm looking for a wider stance without adding a super wide tire and rim. If that makes any sense?

Sort of. Forget the blocks

Research mid travel kits.

I was told by a guy at 4 wheel parts not to use spacers, especially if you tow much. You can find the same size aftermarket wheels with a slight offset to let them sit out a bit more.

Spacers are fine. You can tow on them no problem.

Buy the right one for your application, lug or hub centric, and don't buy cheap.

I've ran spacers on jeeps that have drove from college station to moab ut, wheeled all week and drove back. Lifted 1/2 tons on 3rd and a lifted duramax farm truck that always hooked to a trailer and has a bed full of tools.

Second the idea that spacers are fine, if you get the quality ones.

However, Discount Tire *will not* touch a vehicle that has spacers on it, I don't know about any of the other major retailers. That can be a factor if you get their lifetime balance/rotate.

And the level kit is just pucks that will go between the top of the coilover, no need to worry about shocks or anything else until you go bigger.

STAY AWAY from spacers for ride quality. You need to get on the Tundra forum or even the Tacoma forum. You will get some good advice there. While people do use spacers on spring assemblies very few like the results.

Are you talking about the spring spacers or the wheel spacers? I've got the spring spacers (leveling kit) on my FJ and it didn't effect the ride quality much, if at all. Maybe it's different on the full size trucks. I don't have the wheel spacers, I went with aftermarket wheels.

I think we're talking different things. I was talking wheel spacers.

Discount did change their policy btw, the will work on vehicles with them now

Did they? Good to know, last time I asked was a couple years ago.

It was bad enough at that time, they wouldn't replace the LR tire on my golf cart because it had spacers on the rear.

GOLF CART!
