    Alright, finally getting around to replacing my 3/2 spacer lift with a real suspension. I’ve talked to boss and toytec but still looking for some opinions. My leaf springs look about shot so I need to replace those and I’m currently running 285/75/18 and want to make sure I can still fit them. I’m on factory trd wheels but would like to do some +25 or so scs or method or similar. It’s been years since I put a suspension together so want to run this by you guys before I start ordering. Here’s what I’m thinking so far, please let me know if I’m going about this wrong. I’m open to any and all suggestions.

    rear-
    -Ome/Dakar cs055r 2.5” leaf pack
    With new ubolts and brake line kit
    -icon 56506 shocks

    front-
    I need coilovers that’ll atleast keep me as high as I am now with the 1.75” (3” lift) pro comp spacer on my trd off-road factory setup. Was looking at icon 58650’s but stumbled on a thread where it looks like they’re having repeat issues so now looking more at the toytec, radflo, eibach, etc.
    I’m assuming a diff drop and bump stop ext’s are a good idea, I’m good on the factory uca as of now so guessing They should still be ok with 3” coilovers?

    Another possible option with the 2.5” leafs would be to look at the fabtech or similar 4” kit with the spindles and uca for the front if that makes any sense. It’s my daily driver, I work out of it, pull boats, hunt and fish from it. I don’t do any extreme wheeling or rock crawling just need to keep the ground clearance for driving through the occasional water and ditches when I hunt or go through my property. More mud than anything around here. Hoping to not spend a ton but dont want to have to deal with any mystery problems so whatever it costs to do it right is what I’m willing to spend. I wasn’t really looking at bracket lifts but if that’s the safest way to run my tire size maybe I should.

    Thanks for any info in advance.

    Following as I am going to pull my 3/2 in the near future as well. I already bought the UCA's, and I'm going with the Toytec Boss coilovers. I run the 285/70/18's on mine. Which 3/2 do you have?

    if I remember right it was pro comp parts I bought but its been a while. I ended up ordering the boss coilovers and shocks and some small parts for now, I'll grab the uca's before the fronts go in. Also figured what the hell and ordered the relentless cmc plates, if I have them sitting here it pretty much guarantees i'll just go ahead and chop those mounts and not have to worry as much about tire rubbing when I change wheels
