FAQ: 2007+ Tundra
Q. Do I need the diff drop kit on my 2007up 4x4 Tundra?
Y The diff drop kit does lessen the angles on the axles, not a bad addition our 4x4 kits for this model include the diff drop kit.
Q. How much can I lift my 2007up Tundra?
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 great on the 2007up Tundra trucks.
Q. Can I use shackles or add-a-leafs on the rear for lift?
Yes. We do offer an adjustable shackle for 1 or 1.5 inches of lift as well as add-a-leafs.
Q. Will the lift 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" . The 2 1/2" kits will leave the rear slightly higher .
Q. What size tires can I run with the 3" lift kit?
We have not tested every wheel/tire size on these trucks, but 285/65/18, 285/65/20, and 305/55/20 tires have been used. We do not guarantee tire/wheel fitment due to variations between different wheel and tire manufacturers specs. We recommend "Test fitting" any aftermarket tire or wheel you are considering.
Q. Is the ride stiff with the spacers in the front.
The ride with our 3" spacer lift kit on the new Tundra is great, we think it is better than stock. The length of the front coil really helps the ride still be very nice. It feels less firm than the stock ride in the rear does, and feels more matched after the lift.
Q. Is there more stress on front end components (CV axles, joints, and ball joints) if I use your lift with spacers instead of an adjustable coil over ?
No, this is a common misconception that is completely false, neither our spacers or kits with front coils cause more stress or wear on front end components than the other comparing with the same amount of lift. 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
