    Hey guys, I have a stock suspension 2014 SR5, Looking into leveling/lifting this next week. Ive read all the threads for suspension and tires but wan a more direct answer from the experts. Don't need anything crazy and going to go spacer lift route for front, either 2.5 or 3in. Any suggestions on brands? Do I need anything in the back as well? Also going to upgrade tires. Thinking of going the 33x12.5.r18 route, will I need to trim and will it be okay with stock powder-coated rims?

    I would go with Bilstein 5100s over spacers.

    Very true, so if I did 5100’s front and back with the front on the highest setting would I be able to achieve 3in in the front?

    They will level but not as high as 3 inches. I have Toytec Alumas myself....I got them to replace the Readylift 3/2 spacer kit that I had. Ride is so much better. Depending on what you want to spend, there are many options. Spacers are obviously on the low end, and definitely not recommended if you offroad. A few members run FatBobs coilovers and are happy with them. @Toytec Lifts can answer alot of your questions as well. Here is my setup.

    Hmmm okay looking for 3in, what would you recommend? Is it possible to run the 5100’s with a small spacer too?

    5100’s go up to 2.3 inches on the top setting. You can use a 1/4 shim to get you up to almost 3 inches. Fatbob’s are good. There is a pair for sale on the 3rd Gen Marketplace. $550 shipped. Not mine!!

    I'm so far against spacer lifts now...lol. The shackles definitely ride better than the blocks. I dont know how some disagree with that.

    Hmmm, wish they weren't sold. Is it okay to do 5100's all around and use eibach coils instead of OEM to gain more height?

    Here is my Toytec setup with 285/70/18's on a 0 offset. Right around 3.5 in the front and 2 rear.

    Not at all. Some get a slight rub at full lock depending on tire size, but usually an easy fix. 285/70 and 295/70 is the most popular size tires with this size lift.
