Hi Rich, I'm planning to order trd lowering leaf spring . What other parts I need to order to install leaf spring ? I already have rear trd sway bar installed, should I get new bushing? I have re-use my old U bolt to install trd leaf spring? Which one should I get toy tech 1.5 or coachbuilder + 3 to achieve 2 inch lift ?

As far as I know your existing rear swaybar will work but the end links are too long and you will need shorter ones. The drawback is that they are not sold separately as far as I know

how is the ride now? have pretty rough roads in new orleans unlike what you find in california.
any bottoming out issues, pogo stick ride or low rider bouncy ride?

tell us more!

i'm tempted with the trd lowering kit for a 15' crew max 4x4 but have yet to actually drive in one first or have complete feedback so still on the fence.

thanks

The ride is good and we have some shitty roads here. Especially the right two lanes that have been beat to death by the big rigs. I'm not at all disappointed in making the high dollar purchase.

There are some great looking rides on here. I have been tinkering with the idea of a NASCAR Truck series clone on a RCSB and will be going over this thread more when I get it.

Anyone know the largest tire I can run on my TRD lowered crewmax with the 20 inch platinum wheels? Currently has the 275/55/20's on it and had hopes of going to a 275/60/20.

I read a thread that it had been done on a lowered Tundra. Cannot find it now.
32" vs 33" so if you got another half inch of clearance then it should fit. I would mount one and try it on the front and see. The original thread had title like wanting to fill the wheel wells more. He was successful. I know from past experience(tuner cars, pulled and rolled fenders) tire brands vary wildly for the same size tire.

I imagine that the 275/60/20 will fit. I need to see if America's Tire will try mounting one to check for clearances. I'd just hate to order tires and find out they hit something.

I am running 305 40 22s on my 4.6/6 drop. The 275 60 20 works out to a 33'' tire compared to my 31.6 in tire. I really want to try a meaty 33'' tire under my truck. My tires are 12 inches wide compared to the 10.8 from the 275 60 20s

So if you are running 305-40-22's, do you think I may be able to run my stock 305-50-20's with my factory BBS wheels on a 4/6 drop?? I love the fat tire look and I like the BBS wheels for now.

Also I have read that if you go lower then the 2/4 then the Tundras have an issue with excessive tire wear. Are you having that issue?

I am wanting to lower my 2011 Crewmax in the next year or so. I like the look of the 4/6 but I would love to just bag it since I would have to run helper bags anyway. Can anyone tell me how low I can go parked and aired out and NOT have to cut the bed and move everything up? I may be okay with a little movement but not much. I still use my truck as a truck and a daily so I do not want to basically have a cab with a bench on the back.
