Hi everyone, I made the switch from a dodge to a Tundra and I'm so happy about it!

    I would like to level my 08 so any feedback would be great.
    I would like to spend as little as possible but I don't want to buy junk either.

    Welcome! Just level the front or 3" front and 1" rear lift to level. Spacer lift or Coilover lift?
    @ToyTec Lifts has a lot of options. Let me know and we can talk through what your looking for.

    CSUviper, if I want to just raise the front to level with the back is it a 2" lift?

    Stock truck are roughly 2" higher in the back to account for weight you might add with payload or trailer. A lot of people just add a 2" lift to the front to level the truck out. This allows you to fit larger tires in the front that you couldn't without the lift. This is what most consider a level kit. Just levels the front with the rear. You can do this with either spacers or Coilovers. The better way is with Coilovers.

    I agree with CSUviper, a 3/1 level kit did the trick for my truck! I went with a readylift spacer kit. Largely because I got a good deal on Amazon. No complaints so far.
