    Alright guys. For a grand total of 225 bucks, im doing a 3/2 lift tomorrow.
    2" rear block with procomp +2 shocks.
    Carrier bearing .750 drop
    Front diff drop
    Bilstein 5100's up front (won in a waffle for 10 bucks!!!)
    Coach builder shims 2 on driver one on pass side. (Per coach builder advice)

    After much research, this seems to be everything i need. Ive been soaking bolts for 3 days in penetrating lube so at least i have that going for me. Im very mechanically capable so im not too worried. Im going to attempt the non spring compressor method, i have a set of compressors if i need them.

    After talking to coach builder he agreed driving for a couple of days to let the suspension settle is the best bet before an alignment. He also advised to loosen the UCA rear bolt prior to install and tighten it back up after a couple of bumper bounces to let everything relax.

    How long do yall think is a good to wait before the alignment? 50 miles?????

    Also with a mild lift like this, should i go for factory alignment specs or some of the lifted specs ive seen?

    There is nothing as good as good maple syrup on a nice waffle!

    Nice setup. Diff drop necessary. Carrier bearing drop...maybe. Can't hurt.

    Nope didn't open a can of nothing won them on a wraffle but the bane of the page I got it on was a waffle not wraffle or raffle. So the original post I made was correct all jokes aside....

    @Whitelightning we joke around here quite a bit. Take it all in stride. $20 for a pair of bilstiens is an awesome price. Everything else in your plan seems solid except the rear blocks. You may regret that in the future, but if you're just buying time to save for upgrades to the springs it makes sense. Any advice from @Coachbuilder1 is good. POST SOME PICTURES!

    Oh jokes don't bother me hah. Was more wondering hot long others went before an alignment to let the suspension settle. I don't want to post the page name on here and get myself in trouble but there is a waffle page dedicated to tundra parts on fb. If I'm allowed to post it I will.

    For now it's a budget install. I will likely go with shackles later as well as UCAs. It was a task in itself to get the wife on board for the budget lift, if I go a little at a time she's happy.... still trying to figure out how to get katskinz past her...

    When I saw $225, I thought, dang, another spacer leveling kit. Can't beat that price. Bilstein 5100 is an excellent choice. Post some pictures when you get everything installed (heck, even before and during). We love pictures.
