2005-2014 Toyota Tacoma 4wd and 2wd
2" front Leveling Kit
This kit will only fit the 6-lug models--WILL NOT FIT the 5-lug model
This kit is manufactured in America by AutoSpring Kits. Manufactured from heavy duty steel not plastic or aluminum that can break down or corrode.
NO STRUT DISASSEMBLE REQUIRED AND NO BALL JOINT SEPARATOR IS REQUIRED TO INSTALL OUR KIT.
Other kits require you to completely remove the struts and disassemble them with a coil compressor tool (and it better be a heavy duty one because the factory coils are stiff). They claim 1.5 hrs (for a suspension mechanic with the right tools on a good day).
Our Steel spacer simply bolts on top of your existing strut. The 1-1/4 inch thick spacer will lift the front end ~2 inches due to the control arm angles and strut placement in relation to the spindle. After installing this kit you can easily clear 33" tires on factory width wheels. We designed this kit with strength and ease of install in mind. We use the highest quality materials, including: Zinc plated hardware and Nylock nuts. Our front spacers are fabricated from heavy duty 1/4" CNC LASER cut U.S. steel and 1/4" thick wall D.O.M tubing. These babies won`t break. GUARANTEED FOR LIFE!
This kit WILL NOT CHANGE your factory soft ride at all. No special tools required and the kit only takes one and half hours to install. Your coils are STEEL and your struts are also, so why use plastic in between? Our kit comes complete with:
2 Lift/Leveling spacers
Grade 8.8 zinc plated hardware
Easy to follow installation instructions
If you have been looking at the various Toyota forums, you have probably read about the problem with premature strut failure. This failure is caused by installing a spacer (plastic or aluminum) in between the coil. This preloads the strut/coil causing a much stiffer ride but also over-extends the strut shaft causing the strut to leak and fail, and in some severe cases completely separate. NOT GOOD!
Our kit WILL NOT cause the struts to fail because our steel spacers simply bolt on top of the strut, not in-between. NO COIL/STRUT PRELOAD AND THE FACTORY SMOOTH RIDE IS UN-CHANGED.
THIS KIT IS GLOSS BLACK POLYURETHANE FINISH.
Note: After installing this or any other lift/leveling kit you will need to re-align the front end. However, only toe in will need to be corrected. NO SHIMS or additional parts are required.
