    Evening all,
    Does your stock tundra sit level??
    I bought the TRD PRO and it sat level and bought BDS 7 inch suspension lift and their lift was set to be level when done but back is 1 1/2 lower as they planned on back starting higher. So I'm wondering if other tundra start higher in the back. I know the other 5 tundra truck I had were all higher in the back to start.

    The pro comes leveled. Don't think any other model does

    Stock mine was low in the front. I put 5100s on the front (highest setting) and it was ~level. While next to a stock pro they both measured the same at that point.

    The only reason the pro is leveled is because of the upgraded Bilsteins upfront. The rear is the same height as any other Tundra. I think 2wd and non factory tow pkg might sit lower in the rear, but not sure.

    So your Tundra being a Pro shouldn't affect your lift application. Once you remove the TRD Pro suspension your Tundra is the same as any other 4x4 Tundra.

    I'm not familiar with drop bracket lifts, but with a true suspention lift you get a bro lean due to the coilovers being set too high or the rear not being lifted high enough with AAL, block, shackles.

    Oh, also forgot to mention that sometimes you end up with a bro lean that goes away once the front suspension settles down. Not sure if that's the case with a drop bracket. Hope that helps.

    I'm going to raise the back one way or another I was just wondering if they had changed them. I can't have the front higher. So either add a leaf or shackles. Ill find out on nonday whrn I get with BDS
