    I'm considering purchasing a 2016 Crewmax and I want to do a 2"/4" drop on it. I'm having trouble finding a kit for the 2016 models. I also emailed a company asking about it and they said that they don't show any kits for this year model. Has anyone seen or heard of a kit for that year model?

    Thanks

    It will be the same as a 2014 or 2015. Nothing has changed except adding of a OEM trailer brake controller on the 16's.

    Sorry I don't. I'm not into lowering so have not done any research on them.

    Honestly there is nothing about the suspension that has changed since the 2007 MY Tundra, so any kit 2007-16 would likely be identical. They probably just havent confirmed/test-fitted on a '16 therefore it's absent from the compatibility chart.

    I had a 2007 as well. This was a 2"/4" drop. I've owned a lot of vehicles in my life and NEVER had more heads turned than with this truck (except maybe my Triumph Thruxton). Man, I miss that thing!!!

    They are correct on 2007-2016 Tundras having the same suspension.

    When I get mine lowered, I'm going with the 2"/4" kit from McGaughys which is a spindle drop in front and a flip shackle kit in the rear. I was told this is the best kit for still having a smooth ride.

    You might also consider a kit from Tundra Racing - http://sosperformance.com/ This was my first choice, but I had a local shop quote me $850 installed for the McGaughy kit. My installing days are over with... and $100 labor isn't too bad IMO.

    I installed a lowering kit a while back on a they 2wd dbl cab. Wasn't too bad... handle corners rather well at 60 mph:spy:

    Search Google for kits. They are out there
