    Got a question for you Coachbuilder. I have a bone stock 2014 Tundra 4x4 (1794) crewmax. As soon as my local shop can locate them, I want to purchase the 5100's and have them installed to level the truck. But with a level truck, I don't want the rear to sag when I pull my 19ft aluminum boat or my 5x10 utility trailer with a 700lb atv. However, I'm leery about lifting the rear of the truck as I've heard you can inherit a shutter/vibration from the driveshaft. Additionally, I've heard that shackles are a better way to lift than using blocks. Would you recommend the +1 or +2 shackles? Also, if I use either one of those shackles, would I really need the carrier bearing spacer kit? Thanks.

    I will take a set of +2. I just ordered my OME 612's

    How do I sent payment information?

    Thanks!

    I have a 2010 Toyota Tundra I'm looking to do a little bit of a lift on i was looking at the 3 and 1 but have seen your +3 and +4 shackels for the rear (also i have the air bag setup in the rear can i use your shackels in conjunction with it) but I wanted some advice from you on what u thought would get me most lift for my buck with out sacrificing ride. I want to be able to fit a 35" tire with out spending 2gs on a full lift. I see people offering coil over lifts for the front that gives 3 inches but is that the best rout or should I just go with spacers in the front. I wanted to see what you thought. I am also purchasing a set up rims and tires for the truck wanted to see if you had any recomendations on specs (offset and other specs ) I should look at for rims that will work good for me if I decide later on I want the 6 inch lift and What's your recomendation on tires that get the best life and are still the off road agressive look?

    Getting my shopping list for my lift kit together for 13 CM 4x4 for when i return from my deployment. I'll be running the BDS 7" basic kit, 22x11 -24 offset, 35" M/T(undecided on the brand). I would like to know what the price is to order your shackles and CB drop kit. Not quite sure on what size shackles I would need to level the truck or have the rear slightly higher. Thinking 1.5-2.0". I also have the firestone air bags. Shipping will be to Florida, 32566.

    Thanks!

    Ready to install my zone 5. Would like to order you +3 shackles for the rear. Also thinking about running 2 shims on each side up front. Steering stops and carrier drop.

    I will be ordering the bilstein 6112's soon for the front and would like to get some rear shackles as well as some of your other upgrades. I would prefer the truck to be as level as possible. What do you recommend for a 2015 cm 4wd?
    Thanks,
    Jaime

    Hi there.

    I have a 2014 Limited CM 4x4. I have the front lifted 3" and wanted to add about 1" to 1.5" in the rear. I do have my surveying equipt in back of my truck at all times......maybe 300-400 lbs at the most. Can I get a price and options on something that may help me?

    Thanks
