    Ok so rough country 4.5"? Or BDS? For a 4x4 2015 tundra. But i hate strut spacers. Is there any way around it? Anyone have a 4.5"? Any thoughts??? Help

    I was looking at this same situation. My thoughts on this are the cheaper way to do it is with
    strut spacers. Unless you completely change out the struts, even the lift kits come with them.
    Unless your willing to pay more for the complete change out lift kits.

    I think the 4.5 lift kit is a good lift, and I believe a 4.5 for a tundra is just about the same as a
    6 inch on a f-150. At least that's what it looks like to me but I don't know actual heights.

    I would spend the extra money on the BDS lift. Rough Country is cheap for a reason and known for bad CV angles. Don't ruin a brand new Tundra with a rough country lift.

    Hear is my .02$. You just paid 35+k for your truck because you wanted a good tuff reliable truck. Do not chinse out on parts to put on it... Roll what you have until you save enough pennies to put a good kit on it. You will be much happier you did. Gramps always said don't throw good money after bad.... Toytec,icon,camburg make kits with aftermarket coil overs and new uca's. That are designed to keep angles right and not put any more stress on parts than factory. My truck handles and rides like a dream. Which you will not get with the cheaper lifts.... Good luck.

    Do it right the first time...if not, you may be back in the same boat kicking yourself wishing you had.
