    I've been getting quotes from different shops on lift, rims, and tires. I have a shop stating they could install the 7in BDS lift Without the coilovers which is much cheaper than the one with coil overs and it still would ride just like factory. Is this true?

    Well, it depends if you have ever ridden in a Tundra with coilovers. It will ride like factory, but the COs are way better.

    Get what you pay for, so to speak.

    Especially with a big lift like that, going cheap usually isn't the best option.

    Where I have no experience with 7 inch lifts, I didn't go with coilovers on my 3/1 lift (to be rectified soon). The ride was. Noticeably worse than stock and to me, that fact would transfer to the 7" lift, also.
    Like Tyler and Chris said, on a lift like that, its best not to go cheap.

    I can vouch for what Law says. I originally went with a spacer lift and the ride felt harsh. I have FBG coilovers now and not only is the ride smoother but handling is greatly improved.
