    I was quoted $250 from 4wheel parts in westminster to install 5100s on the front end, plus $150 for the alignment. Thought that was reasonable, but did It myself using the how to on this site. Not a bad job if you have some tools and half a day.

    If you need an alignment in the future, Toytec does it for $100.

    Thanks, good to know. Bought my wheels and tires from 4wp, so was already there. Will definitely check out toytec in the future.

    This is exactly what I'm thinking of doing. Do you have a picture of your truck from the side?

    Thanks. Went with Duratrac 295/65 18. Had to remove the small front mud flap and push the liner forward.

    I'm wanting to get a 3/1 level and the stealership I bought my truck from wants me to have them do it. They say I have to or I lose my warranty.

    1.) Will a level kit void my warranty?

    2.) Does a 3/1 level kit make gas mileage any worse? I plan on keeping my stock rims and tires.

    Thanks in advance!

    Would a 2" level using spacers look better?

    You may not like the ride. You can always get the Bilistein 5100's and use your stock coil.

    I am looking to get my truck leveled 2018 Tundra Dbl cab TRD off road. I just did some measurements and the Front is 36.5 both sides and the rear is 39.5 both sides so wouldn't I just need to do a 3 inch lift in the front to make it level?

    I measured mine and got 37" in the front and 39.5" in the back. I talked to ToyTec and they said the 2" would level it. If you go with a 3' you would be slightly pitched in the front plus it might create an issue with the TSS. I ordered the 2" (havent installed yet.) and talked to the dealer. They said it shouldn't affect the TSS and they could calibrate it if needed.
