    I have been looking for a leveling kit for my 2012 extra cab sr5 tundra. There are some many different ones out there its hard to know which one to go with. Also if you pull the tape the front end is about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 lower then the back. 99% of the leveling kits are 2 1/5 to 3 inches. looking for some direction

    I havent towed yet, I'v heard these trucks are pretty stout and stiff for towing, Heavy loads will always give a truck some sag.

    Look into Bilstein 5100 for leveling. You are much less likely to break front strut (in a spacer leveling kit, your front strut in effect acts as the bump stop). And best of all, it's not that much more expensive than spacers.

    This is what I got in my deal so its hard to price out whats what. The dealer is definitely more expensive than anywhere else but I got to roll it into the loan. Im guessing a level kit install at 4Wheel Parts would run around $400-$600
