TRD pro shock and +3 CB shackles installed

I scored a set of take off TRD pro shocks for $1200 and installed the rears yesterday along with some coach builder +3 shackles and poly bushings. Getting the old bushings out of the leaf springs were by far the hardest part. I used a ball joint press (looks like a c clamp) but I had to be creative with stuff around my garage because the adapters the press came with wouldn't quite work. After the old bushings were out everything went in really smooth. I'm going to install the fronts after I receive the shims I ordered from CB. So right now I have a crazy amount of rake. About 4" total. Measures 36 1/2 in the front and 40 1/2 in the back.

Probably yields great downforce at very high speeds ;)

Pretty safe bet you have the only Tundra on Earth set up this way. I'd drive it around a bit.

And forgive me but I can't help but say, It's appropriate that this big bootied ride is the color it is. I'm thinking Serena Williams here. (I love her!)

Weird. The +3 shackles are supposed to net something like 1.6" in the rear right? With 2" from the PRO suspension up front, you should have lost about half an inch of rake.

Drive it around a bit, get the shackles to settle and re-measure?

hmmm... i thought +2's resulted in about that. from seeing the physical length of the +3's in other videos this is kind of what i'd expect with a modest lift up front.

Haha well if I left it as is I definitely wouldn't have any sag when towing my travel trailer :). In my opinion this look is def best suited for women tho. :D

I haven't installed the fronts yet. I am waiting on shims from CB to get here. I'm hoping after the fronts are installed I have about an inch of rake.

The +3 shackles are supposed to yield about 1.75" of lift I think.

Aaaah. Now it makes sense. I thought you already had the fronts installed.

Got the fronts installed over the weekend and had the alignment done today. Truck rides great and the front now measures just over 39 inches. So I have a bit over an inch of rake, but It's hardly noticeable and looks good in my opinion.

So I plan to install this suspension into my 2010 DC. My dealership is willing to assist with installing CB shims etc. How many inches of lift did this give you over your previous setup. In all my research I have never gotten a definitive answer on this. What tires do you plan on getting later? Can you provide a parts list? I appreciate it and I too love a little rake in my vehicle. Was looking at UCAs as well. Thank You!

I plan on doing the same thing with my 2010 CM. It looks like the TRD pro suspension and 2 CB shims you should net about 3 inches up front. I just ordered my shims. Are you doing the install yourself? If so you will not need help from the dealer. The shims go on top of the coilover assembly on the 4 bolts. They are idiot proof because they can only go on 1 way. I am hoping to clear my 35x12.50 tires on 20x9 +30 rims

Alignment was all within spec, truck drives great and goes down the road straight. As of now I am not planning on getting ucas. The only other thing I would like to do is get some bigger tires but that will be next year sometime.

Perfect, thanks for the update. I guess the 2 CB shims don't take it out of spec to require new UCAs.

I have the Pro suspension, but I've been debating if I should get CB shackles and shims before installing them. Now I'm contemplating selling them and getting a set of Kings or Foxes.

It all depends on your proposed use. If you are going to wheel your truck hard then kings or foxes might be in order but the Pro kit is very capable. I use my truck as a truck. I tow, haul, and use it off road on occasion. The OME 612 and CB +2 shackles have proved very capable, I just want a bit pusher ride. The OME can be a bit stiff.

I just received my CB order of 4 shims and the +3 shackles to go on my new '16 TRD PRO. I will be getting it installed tomorrow (should end up with just under 1" of rake) and I will be getting some 295/70R18s Nitto Trail Grapps put on the stock TRD PRO wheels. I was wondering how it would look with that rake so thanks for posting the pic, looks good in my opinion!!! I'm assuming mine will look very similar to what yours looks like.

Will post some pics tomorrow evening or Friday once its all on there.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. Let me know how it goes.
@Migs53 Please update your results.
