    I was looking for a Lift Kit on the budget. So I'm looking for personal experience of fellow members.
    On my short list:
    - Ready Lift 69-5276
    - Daystar KT09131BK
    - KSP KS-9K016-32
    I'm not familiar with KSP brand. Had in the past Daystar kit on my old 4Runner and don't have any bad personal experience.
    What what be the best option?
    Does anyone familiar with KSP? How good are they? They are very price competitive...

    Daystar has front polyurethane spacers, KSP is bullet aluminum and ReadyLift is piece of round pipe with 4 spot welded plates at the ends. How well the ReadyLift caries the load with their design and withstand corrosion from salty winters? From past experience steel bolts and aluminum spacers can potentially be corrosive welded and may need maintenance on the threads time to time. Design with the bolts of KSP can be a bit tricky to install vs studs like Daystar or ReadyLift...

    Rear blocks are cast (steel I assume) for Daystar and Readylift and welded steel for KSP. Daystar state that their blocks are tapered for driveline angle, it looks like KSP and ReadyLift tapered too, but I couldn't find any info confirming that.

    What do you guys think?

    I thought of this, but it tends to be $1'000 option.
    The vehicle is basically driven on the road and towing a trailer. I have 4Runner for off-road which has OME lift

    I meant that Toytec also has the spacer lift you are looking for...

    5100's and a block for the rear. DIY and it'll be under $600 or so. Amazon has the full set of 5100's for like $450 and you can find a rear block + ubolts pretty cheap. Say no to spacer lifts. I've seen shock failures on spacer lifts from people hitting large potholes.

    I checked the Bilstein 5100s. 2 front struts are $400 with free shipping. Rear shocks are another $300.
    I can't seem to find who does the 2" rear blocks for Tundra, all I find are part of the kits.

    Wait are you Canadian? Sorry i might not be of much help there then. On Amazon in the US the set of front and rear shocks are $447 with free shipping.

    Toytec has blocks as a kit with the ubolts which is what i recommend. You can't use the OEM Ubolts as they're too short and ubolts are a one time use part since they stretch once torqued anyways. https://www.toyteclifts.com/bk-2-rear-2-block-kit-includes-u-bolts.html

    You can also find cheaper blocks on ebay, but i can't vouch for their quality.

    Yep, anything sold by US retailer is not a free shipping to Canada (usually around $60-100 on shipping + $60-150 in brokerage fees) and multiply the final number by 1.35 to get it in CDN.
