1 rear blocks and 2 front leveling kit question

Hey guys,
Ever since I installed the 2 leveling kit, the front end just seems a tad higher than the rear. Im contemplating 1 rear blocks to give the truck the right stance. A friend recommended https://bilsteinlifts.com/shop/toyot...toyota-tundra/

Given the fact that I do not off-road the vehicle and drive less than 10K miles a year, is the extra cost of shackles worth the investment?

Thanks for your input.

Yes, buy the Toytec shackles and put them on the 1" setting.
But buy them directly from Toytec.

You've already suffered enough by buying a spacer lift instead of coil overs for the front.
Friends don't let friends put blocks on their rear axles...

Wow...those shackles increased by over $50 in 4 months. Must be Chinese steel.

At that price I would definitely consider coachbuilder shackles instead. I bought mine last month on Father's Day sale for $119 from bilsteinlifts.

People shouldn't buy anything made out of steel from china anyway. Especially a suspension component.
I don't care how cheap it is.

Hey Dallas,

In the forum labeled tundra suspension talk is a thread regarding how to get in touch with David (coachbuilder). I reached out and he got back to me within a couple days. I then jumped on the phone with him and he walked me through everything. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgable regarding the tundra and its suspension. If I were you I would just get in touch with him. He can send you an emailed invoice and you can click a button and be on your way.

Hope that helps!

CJ

No problem. Im new here, but it seems like this is a pretty nice place to learn from folk. David was really laid back and helpful, Im sure he will get you hooked up.

Good luck!
