    Do you still have the BOSS setup?

    I am thinking of going with the Aluma 2.0 BOSS series. I only have 5K on truck and have in coil spacers. For the money, I just want to be sure I will get an upgrade over stock.

    I do still have my BOSS setup.

    honestly, I think you’d get a solid upgrade over spacers and/or stock.
    Best part is Toytec valve their shocks specifically for Toyota. The ride is definitely noticeably smoother than stock/spacers.

    Is there a consensus on when you need to get an upper control arm?

    The amount of lift?

    Typically, the more you lift (by pushing down on the control arm assembly) the harder it is to align. The consensus is that 3” of lift (using spacers or coilovers) may require aftermarket UCAs for better alignment, but some Tundras are fine while others may need them with just 2.5” of lift. Another issue that might justify aftermarket UCAs is that a spacer or coilover lift can result in the stock UCA hitting the coil springs during downtravel. Those are the two main reasons I’m aware of, but I’m speaking with admittedly no experience with them. I am considering a pair, though, as I want to go up to about 2.75” to 3” of lift later. I think they’ll give me peace of mind with alignment numbers and coil spring clearance during any excessive down travel.

    I have a 2019 with the supreme suspension leveling kit , 3” spacers on front and 2” blocks in back ... rear end bottoms out when hit railroad tracks and such ... do you know what size I would need to go to on rear shocks ? The installer even said they had to stretch them to get them to near bottoming out to get back on truck

    @csuviper

    I am currently running 6112 / 5160 with toytec shackles.

    about to install icon stage 9. Should I revert back to "stock" shackles with the RXT leaf pack or should I keep the toytec shackles? Will the combination of the new leaf pack and shackles add to each other as a lift? For example, toytec shack is 1" and the leaf pack is 1.75".. so if combining, using together, would I be looking at 2.75"?

    Had to inquire with Toytec as I have never installed the RTX. They said it will look great with the Toytec shackle still installed. They have done a few installs like that.
