    I've got one of the heavy ass Ranch Hand front bumpers on the Tundra and it's causing the front end to sag down more than I'd like. Found a 3" leveling kit from Ready Lift that I'm considering picking up. Wondering if anyone else was able to get rid of the sag with a leveling kit or spacers. Thanks

    Have you considered using an adjustable shock like a Bilstein 5100?

    I've looked into it a little but haven't done a whole lot of research or searching. I have no issues with the ride height itself, I just need to level it out. Maybe I'll start looking into some 5100's now...

    New shocks never hurt anyone

    Bilstein's would help a lot but OME makes lift kits made for heavy bumpers etc.

    My main reason for not doing a lift (like I would like to) is I have kids and putting kids in car seats, especially an infant, with a 6" lift is not an easy task. I would love to slap a lift on it but I have to be responsible and smart for at least another couple years til the kids grow up and can climb in themselves. And by then I hope to be in a new Tundra.
    I've looked into the OME shocks but I was looking for my Jeep. Couple guys at work have used them and didn't have any complaints.
