    I have a 2008 SR5 Trd dbl door 4x4. My local tire shop wants $650 to install the leveling kit which includes the cost of the kit. They said it would take three hours to install. Is this right?
    Thanks for any advice!

    My 3-1 Pro comp level w/install cost $627 tax included. Pro comp products kinda have a bad rep on the site, but so far no complaints here. fYI I don't off road, strictly for looks. Good luck and welcome to the site.

    Yea i don't have experience with Pro-comp myself but seared away from it in the past because its known as procrap on the forums.
    I have heard the pro runner is a copy of the Bilstein 5100. If its truly a copy it should be similar in ride.

    Based on the price i am assuming that it is just a spacer lift though without new shocks. Looks like spacer lifts are around $300 so that would put the install around $350. I think we have said on here that these lifts should cost around $300 installed. Not far off from norm then.

    There are two types of spacer lifts; Above coil and In-coil. Each have their pros and cons. The problem that people see with spacer lifts is that it can cause shock failure. Either in the droop position or compressed position.

    One thing i found interesting is that Toytec has a split spacer design. They add part of the lift above the coil and part of the lift in the coil. I assume to alleviate the possible shock problems.
