Anybody know who makes the best front end lift spacers/kits ? Looking to raise my front end up 1" for new ALY69430U20N wheels. Don't really want to change the way my truck sits, my have to lift the rear an inch., also. Any help ? Thanks

Bilstein 5100 shocks have multiple perch settings to change ride height and they're great riding, affordable shocks.

Spacer lifts suck. As Albacore said, the Bilstein 5100 series adjustable front struts allow you to set your ride height by installing the lower spring perch at different notches. I've had both. If you can't afford a true coilover (Icon, King, Fox, etc), then the 5100s are your best bet to level the front of your 1-Gen Tundra.

The term "coilovers" is slang for "coil-over-strut", the front suspension design typically incorporated with double-wishbone suspensions that utilizes a gas-tube strut inside a spring (aka "coil") providing the vehicle's support as well as compression and rebound damping.

Offroad suspension manufacturers (Icon, King, Fox, etc) typically sell their front assemblies as a kit (strut + coil). Some designs are adjustable, i.e. one of the coil's ends can be compressed/moved by the use of a threaded collar on the outside of the strut housing to change the vehicle's static ride height. In addition to ride height adjustment, they can offer increased suspension travel, user-adjustable compression and rebound damping settings, and rebuildability (seals, gas and oil).

If you like how your truck rides and just want it a little bit taller up front, 5100s all day.
