    Stay away from spacers, brother. Like Mile said, talk to Toytec.

    Stick with a suspension lift with rear shackles, your ride quality, your shocks, and your truck will thank you. Trust me.

    Spend more time and get something that is functional. I love my Toytec Boss.

    Neither. 5100 (shims ?) and shackles as the cheapest good way to get 3" and 2".

    Just depends how you plan to use your truck if it's a pavement pounder get the spacer if you take it off road get something different. Ome makes a great product as well.

    Even if you never go offroad nobody on here would advise you to get a spacer lift. If you want to level your truck the cheap way get some Bilstein 5100's.

    I've ran them never had a problem there's really nothing wrong if u just drive highway. Sure I'd do 5100s or pro runners over a spacer if I had a choice. But just answering ops question it really comes down to what you plan to use the truck for.

    Not really. You can have a spacer that's inline the coil and outside too..safer version IMO.
