FAQ: 00-06 Tundra

Q. Do I need the diff drop kit on my 2000-2006 4x4 Tundra?
Y The diff drop kit does lessen the angles on the axles, not a bad addition.... our 4x4 kits for these models include the diff drop kit.

Q. Can I Use your 3" lift front spacers with the 3" coilovers  for 6" Total lift?
NO, you cannot. 3" is the maximum front lift on these vehicles without replacing, or lowering  the entire front cross member. The stock control arms, ball joints and Cv axles will not allow more lift.

Q. Do I need longer shocks with your 3" kit?
No, The stock shocks work exceptionally well on the 2000-2006 Tundra. We do stock longer rear shocks for optimum flex, and performance off road if desired.

Q. Can I use shackles or add-a-leafs on the rear for lift?
No, You cannot use shackles on the 2000 - 2006 Tundra, their rear spring mounts do not allow standard "bolt on" shackle designs to work.  We recommend the longer rear Toytec add-a-leafs for rear lift. The ride is not too firm, and the extra load capacity is nice. We also stock block kits that fit the Tundra in 1" and 1 1/2" lift.

Q. Will the kits you offer "level" my truck?
Yes, our 3" complete front and rear kits are designed to level your truck, by lifting the front 3" and the rear 1 1/2" . The 2 1/2" kits will leave the rear slightly higher like stock.

Q. What size tires can I run with the 3" kit?
We have not tested every wheel/tire size on these trucks, but 285/75/16 tires are about the largest for the 2000-2006  Tundra trucks.

Q. What size tires can I run on a 16x8" wheel?
With 4" or 4.5" back spacing we have several trucks running 285/75/16 tires. We do not guarantee any tire/ wheel fitment due to variations between different wheel and tire manufacturers specs. We recommend "test fitting" any wheel and tire combination you are considering

Q. What is the difference between the coil kits, and the front coilovers?
The coil over shocks will have a softer ride than kits with spacers. Either will be slightly firmer than stock . The coilovers are adjustable and come assembled ready to bolt on so a spring compressor is not required.

Q. Is there more stress on front end components (CV axles, joints, and ball joints) if I use your lift with spacers only and not the adjustable coil overs?
No, this is a common misconception that is completely false, neither our spacers or kits with front coilovers cause more stress or wear on front end components than the other. There are however other manufacturers spacers we have seen that will cause problems if too much spacer is over the top plate of the shock.....

Q. Will I need an alignment after the lift?
Yes, you will need an alignment after the lift install. We recommend the Camber be set to zero and toe .04 degrees

Q. Will the installation of a lift Void my warranty?
The installation of a lift will not Void the warranty. Coverage on any part that is proven to be damaged as the result of a lift or any condition caused by the install of a lift can be denied for coverage though. There is more warranty information on our Warranty page: Click Here
