May 7, 2007Heard really good things about procomp. http://www.explorerprocomp.com/
May 7, 2007My personal favorite (for the $250-500 range) is a kit sold by Toytec Lifts. It comes with OME coils up front and Alcan rear AAL's. They sell quite a large variety of kits at different prices ranging from less than $300 for front spacers and rear shackles or pro-comp AAL's to around $500 for what I will be getting.
If you've got more $$ and want the best setup, get coilovers up front and replacement 2.5" leafs in the rear (about $1200-2000 for everything).
May 17, 2007yes i agree we have procomp in the uk and have used them a couple of times, they can help with anything.
May 17, 2007check ouy my gallery, I have the toytec 3" basic kit i think, its the coil isolator and top plate, the rear is stock height
June 7, 2007I put in a Revtek 3" kit before changing it with the new 6" fabtech kit. I really liked the kit and would recommend it to anyone. The only reason I changed it was because I wanted more height.
June 7, 2007Have installed skyjacker, didn't like.
Also used trailmaster, it's an ok system.
Most recently installed a procomp. It rides the best
of the ones I have personally used.
June 7, 2007Iv got Toytec 2.5 coil spacers on my rig, so far so good.
June 15, 2007Check out my pics, I have 98' tacoma and I was kind of a test subject when the toytec lift first came out. It's a good lift over all but if you have a v6 get the 882's their stiffer but will be able to support the added weight of the v6. I have the 881's and the ride is good but they ended up dropping my height to about 2" in front versus about 2-3/4" at the beginning. But by all means if you have the 4cylinder get the 881's. That's the low cost option.
for the higher end best I'm going to get and what I would suggest doing if you plan on doing any real 4wheeling is the Total chaos upper control arms, Donahoe racing coilovers, alcan 8 leaf pack, with bilstein 5150 rear shocks. It'll give you a better ride that stock 90% of the time, give you better flex , and give you the ~3" of lift your looking for. Then comes the issue of tire size
September 28, 2011My lift support under the hood gave out. It no workee at all.
I did find a link to something called a "support rod" on parts.com for $117.30 (yikes). Is this the same part? I`ve heard it called Gas Prop (in the service manual), a lift support and now, maybe, a support rod....confusing....
Can someone confirm this is the right part? And if anyone has any advice or sources for a decent replacement, that would be great!
May 6, 2012im in the market for a lift right now and was told cognito was the best. i want to know why its the best and why it is different then superlift or rough country ect. how much more different can it be?

I want to lift my Tundra also. I did a lot of research online, and finally decided to go with the lift kit by procomp. I haven`t bought it yet, however that`s something I`m going to do some time this weekend. Now I was wondering whether the job will be more difficult on the Tundra than on an old good Ford truck? Now, I know How to Install a Lift Kit on a Ford F-150, but the Tundra at this point is still kinda new to me. As I`ve heared that Japanese trucks have more complicated suspension, than Ford and GM trucks.
