    2015 Tundra, Currently have a 6 inch RC lift, have the lifted N2.0 struts. I know they say to not put a spacer on a lifted strut, but I been hearing different from people. Some say as long as you don't off-road you will be fine to put a spacer on a lifted strut. Wanting to put a 2 inch spacer to even out with the my rear

    Extended rear shocks? I thought the kit came with blocks for the back? My front sits lower either due to after market coils( old man Emu) kit was on the truck when I bought it and I went with the RC. Not sure if the coils are smaller than the stock ones, I know nothing about lifts. But I have the OME leaf pack in the rear, so I only put a 1 1/4 inch block roughly on the back instead of the 3 or 4 (whichever came with the RC kit). Not sure why my front sits lower, you can see it in the pic

    Mine has the same issue but smaller lift. I'm definitely interested in which way you go with thus because I'm wanting the same lift.

    Can you post some pics of your coilovers and the underside of your front and rear suspension? I'm curious how your coil-overs are adjusted. Did you measure your rear block under the leaf springs? Its possible someone put a larger block in the rear & your front suspension is setup lower. Some guys will crank the suspension as high as possible giving your truck a stiff ride and feel. For a 6" lift the front of your truck does look low from the photo.
