Need slight front lift to level truck

    Hey guys (or gals),

    I'm looking for some input that will help me make the right suspension/tire choice for my Tundra. We just got a 2006 4x4 Limited. Stock tires are 265/65R17. I'd like to bump it up to 265/70R17 and level up the front 1" or 1.5" only. (Just enough to level it out --not interested in lifting this one).

    It's a daily driver and will rarely see off-road use. However, I may use to to pull a boat, small camper, etc so keeping the tire size close to stock will help with overall HP and fuel mileage when not loaded.

    I've found some cheap 1" "poly" spacers on ebay but I've read bad things about them and prefer steel or aluminum if possible. Also, is 1" enough to level it out, or do I need 1.5"?

    What do you recommend for leveling kits, and do you have any tire suggestions based on what I have described?

    Also, with only 1.5, do you think I need to drop the front diff and clap the CV's? Is that really necessary with such a slight mod?

    Thanks so much.

    I went with a Pro Comp and am very satisfied with it. I did 2.4 front and 1 rear, and a 1" taller tire same width (LT275/70R18). The lift came with the differential spacers so I would assume that if necessary the 1.5 would too.
