    I personally don't but for that price it had better ride like its on a cloud. I think if your really looking for a 3" lift you could definitely find something cheaper that is going to feel about the same as this. But then again maybe I'm wrong.

    I have I believe the same set up.(by medium I’m assuming they mean the front spring, heavy is usually used if you have a steel bumper)
    Any I also had the same setup in my taco. I do t off road, just seasonal roads hear and there, but it’s rides nice. A little stiffer than stock. The only issue I’ve had with arb is their Dakar leaf pack broke, but they replaced it fairly quickly.

    Yota18, thanks for the comment. Can you expand more on the stiffer than stock? I was going with the 3" ready lift level but i wanted to get a better ride quality. this is in a high range for a 3" but still less than the BDS and etc.

    There is a thread on OME lifts in the suspension forum here. It will have the info you are looking for

    lol not really. I had my truck stock for about 5k miles before I lifted it. It’s just stiffer than stock. OME is the only lift I have experience with and I picked them cause they were pretty much middle ground. The Dakar’s leaf packs what adds the excess cost. Most just run a block I believe. Anyone who’s been in my truck has said it doesn’t ride like I lifted truck, I tell em it’s not lifted, it’s leveled with 35’s. I don’t really off road with it or wheel as the cool guys say. Just some fields and seasonal roads. My guess is you’ll be happy, so long as one of your leaf packs don’t break. But even then they have 3 year warranty.

    This includes a set of upgraded rear leaf springs. This is the most legit way to lift a truck. Great price for whats included.

    I have the 612 kit (~2.5" lift) without the rear leaf upgrade and i love it. Very high quality components. It rides about the same as my previous stock black shocks. Offroad it soaks up bumps and provides way more travel, night and day difference and thats just been on dirt and gravel roads. I have yet to wheel mine on some harder trails. There are guys in the above posted thread that wheel this setup and it does great.

    You do have a point I guess I don't see the value in the struts when factory ones are really nice. And or you can get after market ones a little cheaper.

    Agreed. If you are going to lift do it right and get rid of the crap stock Toyota suspension that will be worn out by 50K miles.

    I don't have any experience with OME on a Tundra, but I think the Price is very nice considering front coil overs from other brands will run around this price point.

    I still think in this application I will pay a little more and go with the Ironman4x4 PRO kit just to have adjustable front coilovers
