    The term leveling kit is typically used for a front coil spacer only that brings the front up 1.5" -2" to be level with the stock rear suspension.
    3/1 is a lift kit. Semantics I know.
    To answer your warranty question, yes it will typically void warranty if it is over a certain height that I think is the 2" leveling kit. The loss of warranty can filter down to other things as well even if unrelated. Depends on the day, mood of the person and what's wrong.

    Your best lift options are suspension lifts, not spacers. Call up toytec and have them direct you to the lift kit that fits your needs.

    What he said ^^

    Once u change the suspension u are under a new manufacturer warranty presuming u purchase it new....although, I think it's pretty rare does someone have issues with their suspension if installed correctly

    OME or Bilstein ultimate kits are your best choices for 3"

    Just installed a rancho quick lift preloaded struts. 2.5 inches almost completely levels it . Leaves enough room so if you tow it doesn't look dumb. 200 a side for the preloaded struts love them nice ride too

    I've been wanting to level my Tundra for years. From what I'm reading it's best to use a suspension kit and it will level out. I have the TRD package on my 07, and the ride is fairly stiff and it does smooth out with weight in the bed or towing my RV, I'm getting too old to raise it much more than 2-3" . What's my best option on the suspension system brand? Also will it affect other things on the truck? Like major adjustment to the headlights, etc. Thanks to anyone for your advise.

    Look at the kits on Toyteclifts.com. Either buy from there or piece a kit together from another vendor. OME or Bilsteins will be great kits. Icon and Kings will be the best.
