Looking at leveling my truck

Hello all! Im a noob at leveling/lifting a truck as this is my first truck/ Ive done a little research on some of the ways to level out a tundra and ive decided on going with the Rough Country 2.5"-3" leveling lift kit. Has anyone had any experience with RC leveling kits? If so are they good quality kits for the $190 price tag? How is the ride quality after installation? Thanks!

You have a few choices, I lowered the rear of mine so it's level with the front.
Whatever you do - don't go cheap.

Billstein 5100's seem to be the majority choice when it comes to leveling, it's what I have and couldn't be happier.

with the 5100's do you use the current factory spring or buy new, or does the 5100 also come as a quick strut?

I purchased all 4 and installed the rears myself, super simple. The fronts I contemplated doing and then decided against it so I had a shop install them. They did not order or charge for any new parts so everything you need is there unless for some reason it needs to be replaced.

With the 5100ís you will swap your factory spring and top plate onto the 5100. You will also get to choose how much lift you would like from 1-2.5Ē. If your truck is older or a good bit of miles, putting a new top plate is t a bad idea the KYB brand is quality and inexpensive.

Iíve run 5100ís on several vehicles including my wifeís sequoia. I run the 6112/5100 combo and couldnít be happier, but itís significantly more expensive than the 5100ís.

I'm absolutely pleased with the 5100s I used to level my 2014 Crewmax a few months ago. Did all 4 corners.
There was a set of 6112s on CL for $550 near me that really tempted me though. Just didn't need them for any good reason, and I tried hard to find a reason.
