Hello everyone, I have a 2000 tundra ltd with a 4.5" Tuff Country Lift (i think). This lift was on it when I purchased it. The parts seem to match up from pictures I have researched. It has stock spindels with spacers. The truck came with 35s that rubbed some so I did a mod I found where I flattened out the pinch weld in the wheel well. That helped some. Now I'm at a point where I want to add a little more lift so the tires don't rub at all when fully compressed and strengthen my suspension at the same time. My questions are: can I add some 2.5" coilovers to this lift without removing any spacers so that I get lift from both the spacers and the coilovers? Tuff Country said I shouldn't do this. But it seems like lots of people do. I'm just not sure if people running coilovers with the tc lift take out the spacers. Tuff Country said to do a body lift. I want a bomb proof truck and it seems to me like I should be adding new 2.5" coilovers, icon uppers, and deaver leafs. Can I add this all on to my current lift without removing any spacers? Including the rear Deaver leaf? Any suggestions on an approach to take would be a great help. Im a newb if you can't tell.
Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the info. Its a 4x4 (sorry). I am going give a call to Jack-It in Utah-thanks Big-O. I will have to see the price difference between the brackets and the longer spindles to make a decision. I would rather remove the spacer as suggested. Makes more since to me. Then I'm thinking I will try and get the custom coilovers. DevinSixtySeven might take you up on that offer thanks alot. I will post prices of the brackets and the longer spindles once I figure it out. Thanks again!

Just talked to Tyler at Jack-It Suspension-very helpful. The larger spindles are $475/ea. Also have to replace the c/o spacers which are $72 ea. Looks like $1094 plus tax and shipping to upgrade spindles. The 5" kit is around $1600. Didn't get prices of the brackets. I decided to just get rid of the spacer completely. The lift in the rear for both kits is the same. Hopefully will be ordering soon. SWEEEEET!
