    :help:Does anyone have any recommendations on a leveling kit for my 2016 Toyota tundra TSS off road? I want to replace the upper control arms too. just don't want to spend thousands of dollars. I also want to replace the fog lights on the front bumper to black instead of the chrome led lights. Any recommendations on that?:help:

    At the lowest price point do bilstein 5100s. Do not do a spacer level kit.

    Alot of them
    And you dont need UCA's with just leveling. They aren't needed until you go over 3 inches.

    On my 17 TSS off-road I did the Bilstein 5100’s at top setting 2.5”. Made the truck level. Same measurement in the front as a the back. I have put about 1700 miles on them so far and no problems. Ride is better than stock and the truck looks great. I need to measure the fronts now to see if they have settled any. If your just looking to level it go the the bilsteins. Also you don’t have to put new UCA’s on unless you go over 3”.

    What size tires and wheels? Any rubbing, what offset did you go with the wheels? Did you put the 5100 on the top setting?

    Thanks
