    Is this a good kit and worth $75 ?
    Not looking to go off road, just to give it a small lift and keep the factory 20" tires on for now.

    I've had this kit for about 3 months now. No complaints. Like you, I don't go off road and I'm also on the factory 20 inch wheels and off road tires. I had it aligned when it was initially installed and got it re-aligned about two weeks later on suggestion of the installer. No problems. I purchased mine through RC at $99 so you got a good discount, IMO.

    There are much better options if you just want the truck to sit level and not spend a ton on a lift. Look at Bilstein/Toytec adjustable front shocks. They are a nice middle ground between spacers and coilovers. Plus you won't lose the wheel travel or have the awkard angles / premature wear on other components that come from spacer lifts.

    ToyTec's Eibach coil overs are affordably priced. I think up to 3" lift. Call ToyTec and ask for David. He can give you some decent options to consider.

    So what's the major difference between the Toytec kit and the Readylift kit?

    Toytec offers a variety of different lifts (spacers, adjustable shock, coil over). Not sure there is much of a difference if you are comparing spacer lifts but Toytecs will most certainly be of higher quality if you are set on going that route over a shock/coilover.
