    Leveling kit
    I installed a leveling kit on my tundra and still need to raise the body with a 2-3" lift. What exactly would I need since I have already installed the 2.5" leveling kit? I want to raise the rear and front end an additional 3". I have 33's and the clearance on my front tires is very minimal and my job is off-road in many areas where I am in and out of trenches and ditches. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

    What year is your Tundra?

    Agree with Sean don't stack suspension lifts. If you want to do a body lift i suggest only going up 1". The taller the body lift the worse it looks and more prone to issues.

    Am i reading it correctly you have 2.5" front and want to go up another 3". That would put you at a 5.5" lift. For that you would need a drop bracket lift kit. The tallest you can really go before adding a drop bracket is 3.5" because your cv angles and upper control arm will be at too steep of an angle beyond that. Really above 3" you need an aftermarket upper control arm.

    A 3" front lift and 1 to 1.5" rear lift will allow you to fit 35s like i have on mine and make it very capable offroad.
