  3. Tundra front suspension banging noise

    Suspension, Axles, Brakes

  6. Bilstein's and max tire size

    2Gen-Steering System & General Handling
    Okay, so I'm pretty new to lifting/leveling, but from what I've read I can level my 2013 doublecab with the adjustable bilstein 5100 series shocks? I've read too that adding them to the rear will give best performance? Also, what offset could I add that would bring the tire out, but not well...
