    Hi David -
    I'm new to the forum and recently purchased my 2014 crewmax. I know I want to purchase a set of shackles and pretty sure it's the +3s but I would love to hear your opinion on pairing them with the Toytec BOSS coilovers. I'm assuming 3"-3.5" in the front and I want a level stance. Please let me know your thoughts and how I can order a set of shackles.
    Thank you in advance. Adam

    Hey Coachbuilder,

    I have a 2013 Tundra with an apparent weaker coil spring on the drivers side. A fellow TT member suggest I contact you about a shim to help even up my truck sag to the drivers side. I would like to talk to you about this and ask a few questions so I comfortable with doing this.

    Thanks,
    Jerry (Hunter450)

    Good Morning! Please forgive my ignorance and feel free to send me a link to any concise threads about your shackles so you don't have to repeat yourself .

    My questions are:
    1) compatible with TRD rear sway bar?
    2) they add lift and..? stability?

    I have a 2014 TundraSR5 DC 4WD with a 3" max trac lift on the front and much to my chagrin, no lift in the rear. Adding a Smittybilt M! bumper and winch soon.

    What would you recommend? Nothing but props on the forum for you. Good work! Thanks, Anna (Ohbrothers)

    Could you PM me a price on your rear shackles for a 2012 Tundra Crewmax. I just need a 1" lift to level it out with my OME front lift. Thanks.

    Hi,

    I have a 2010 5.7 dual cab long bed that just turned 100k, it's time to lift it a bit and I'm interested in your rear shackles. the truck currently has 275/70/18's on stock steel wheels with no suspension mods other than Firestone air bags for towing my 7500lb travel trailer.

    I really like the look of a 4" lift with 35's, but will probably keep it to 3 or under as I don't want to have to purchase adjustable UCA's. money is a bit tight and I was thinking a spacer lift/level with your shackles should do the job since the truck will never see off road other than a gravel road. also I'm debating going to 35's or staying with the 33's I have in the interest of fuel mileage. I don't like the look when there is too much tire filling the wheel well, I guess at 45 years old it's become a fine line between underdone...overdone...and just right.

    what method of leveling would you recommend?

    thanks,
    Andy

    Hi Coachbuilder1

    Looking for some direction. I have a 2014 Tundra with a 6"pro comp lift , however to me it looks like the rear is low. I asked the 4x4 shop if there was any way way to level that rear out. I was told no as they had already put an extra leaf in and had 3"blocks. Is this something your extreme shackles could help me with or is there some other way to get my truck leveled. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hey there Coachbuilder1!

    I'm in the market for a 2014/2015 Tundra Platinum CrewMax. I want to get as close to a 3/2 lift as possible with your rear shackles and Bilstein 5100's on the top setting (which I believe the new design will give 2.75").

    How much for the rear 3" shackles and how long does it take before you ship them out? (They give 1.5"-1.75" of lift right?)

    Also, the build you did for Mikedsvt on this forum says he has 1/4" front shims as well, what do they do?

    I'm looking for a slight rake, with about. 1" lift in the front to make the truck look like a 3/2 levelling kit.

    Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you! I'm in Canada Btw.

    I have a 2 in lift front and back. Currently have 2" blocks on the back. So which set would work to keep that same lift in conjunction with the Hellwig helper springs 2000 lb.? I tow a tt regularly at about 300-500 over payload. Would like to eliminate the blocks and also add timbrens.
