    Bilstein 5100's on the lowest setting would probably be your best bet if you're sticking with stock rims and tires. But you won't see a big difference unless you change rubbers and rims.

    Another vote on using Bilsteins. They are easy to install and cost effective. Got mine at 4wheelonline. These shocks can improve ride quality and handling.

    You can go with Bilstein 5100's. They've got 3 settings. At the top setting your truck will be nearly level. It all depends what you do with your truck. I know a guy here who did the Toytec boss and is now shopping for some serious suspension 'cause he likes to wheel his truck.

    Lowering the rear and adding the TRD rear sway bar to my Tundra
    are easily the most rewarding mods I have made to my truck.

    Everything. Literally.
    @Toytec 3/1 lift kit.
    Pricier than a level but well worth it.
    Buy once cry once.

    You lower it if lowering meets your needs.

    Why would you lift a truck if lifting it doesn't meet your needs?
