I am planning on doing a lift spindle and adjustable bilstein in the front and for the back I am kind of up in the air. Is there anything that is better for towing than the rest or are all of them going to knock my towing? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am wanting to keep a close to stock or better ride. I have a 2010 crewmax TRD sr5 5.7.

Front spindle will be 3.5" and Bilstein on middle setting will be 2.5". So you're looking at about 6" in the front. You'll want 3-4" in the rear. Since you mentioned towing you'll probably want an add a leaf for 1.5-2" and CB 3" shackles for another 1.75". That should set you around 3.5" in the rear for a little rake and stiffer rear suspension for towing.

I just got my tundra and got rid of a Suzuki Equator (Nissan Frontier) shackles and leafs were fairly cheap for it, what's the damage on a tundra and where is a reliable place with good customer service that you guys go through often? Thanks for the reply!!

Reading over that last post I sent, I meant where is a reliable place or these parts and around about cost... My brain isn't connecting with my fingers apparently today.

Coachbuilder1 sells heavy duty shackles on here. You will need to PM him for pricing. I haven't checked the price lately but when I bought mine they were a little under $200.

I believe I've seen add a leafs on eBay for around $100. You won't hear a lot about add a leafs on here but I think they're great if you haul or tow much. I'm still considering changing my rear setup and getting a set.

If you are looking to have the truck sit level when unloaded, you are going to want airbags for the rear to level it out when towing.

I fit 315's on rw wheels with bilstines on top notch, could probably go with middle notch. I tow a 28' 5th wheel toy hauler with air bags at 60 and it sits perfect. don't think I would want any more lift in the front. btw I am 4x so spindles aren't an option.

Hey bud, on those Bilstein shocks the top setting is for a 2.5" which is the max you can get out of them not the middle... not sure if that was a typo...

Not sure how big 315's are.... I'll do a search. With the lift I'm planning, what size tire should fit?

Where were you able to purchase the bilstein rear shocks that could work with that much lift? I've looked all over the place!
