    Just bought a Platinum and looking to get the TRD Pro suspension installed. My question is does the suspension itself provide the lift/level or is there another component installed that is assisting?

    The PRO suspension provides 2" of lift over the regular Tundra suspension, its just the suspension itself. Why are you wanting to pay big money for suspension that's not adjustable, rather than getting ones that are?

    Primarily to keep all Toyota parts and make sure that I maintain the warranty. I would probably buy used to save some cash. But I'm not against another system that would provide the same ability.

    You still retain a warranty if it's not the TRDPro (Bilistein) shocks...

    There is no "saving" money buying TRD pro suspension in my opinion. Just putting in a pair of coilovers and adjusted to level the truck out (I'm assuming that is what you want to do), it will not void any warranty.

    Unless you cut the frame for a drop bracket, the suspension shouldn't void a warranty. The only way to add lift height to the PRO suspension is with shims.

    Congrats on the new truck, We have allot of Tundra guys add the PRO suspension for similar reasons. Roman at Cool Springs Toyota will be able to help with your PRO items and if you're need extra height along with improved ride quality we build our Coachbuilder system to do just that. 295/70/18 is most common size used but can bump up to a 35" pretty easy too. Let me know if you need any help sizing or anything else.

    You may want to look into the Bilstein 6112/5160 combo.

    This ^^ Probably the route I'm going when I get into the suspension. Seen the two shocks side by side, they look almost identical aside from red coils, and small reservoirs on the TRD pro shocks. Although, there might be internal differences that make a difference, you can get the 6112/5160 setup for half the price virtually.


    Also, @Coachbuilder1, that MGM pro looks sweet!
