    hi has anyone installed the toytec 4" shock extension and rear block with adjustable UCA's ? I just ordered the kit and plan on ordering the adjustable upper a arms soon.. just wondered if you liked it, or would you have ordered a full 4" suspension lift with a arm drop ect....

    I have the BOSS kit with a 2" block..

    3.5" suspension lift in total. I need to re-measure to see how much has settled, but that's what I gained after.

    That was good timing.

    I am just curious if it will stand at 4" higher in the front.. I understand the adjustable a arms for camber & caster.. But I always heard anything over 3" should be a full suspension lift.. But its toytec.. And they know their shit.. Wondering if anyone out there has experienced with the 4" lift

    Anything at 3" or higher I would do full suspension. Too much stress on the stock shocks and not as safe with spacers, IMO.

    Yeah. I was tossed up between the 3 and 4 inch.. Ordered the 4" and then read the fine print about the adjustable a arms.. Emailed and called the same day and when they returned my call, the lift had already been sent out.. I was told it was their fault for getting back to me so late and as soon as the lift came in to call.. I'm going to return the upper spacer and rear blocks for the rest of the 3" kit.. The guys at toytec were super nice and friendly.. Easy to work with.. Thanks..
