This what I'm looking at for my 2010 Tundra trd DC. I'm paying 1734 dollars for the whole set up shipped and 400$ for install. Is this a good deal?

If anybody has a similair set up how do you like it? I was told by a few people that this is a far superior way of getting 3 inch lift as opposed to a spacer lift. Any comments?

I am glad to hear that. I am kinda new to after market mods on 4x4's. I hope that the 3/4 inch lift provided by the TC shackles will provide enough lift to keep the back higher than the front after I lift the fron by 3 inches. Going strictly off pre-install measurements the shackles should leave the rear .25 higher than the front, I hope this is the case.

I think a better way to put this

.

I explained that my truck would be seeing quite a bit of ranch roads, river trails, washouts .. etc and for that application a coil over supension is a safer set up. I have seen alot of the pics of spacer lifts here on the forum and there are some great looking trucks here. I would happily go with a spacer lift if I thought I wouldnt do damage to my truck(so much cheaper .. same look). So to all you guys that are lucky enough to be able to use a spacer lift with no problems, your trucks look awesome.

I think you may want to go with the Total Chaos UCA's rather that the Camburg ones. Camburg uses mild steel and Total Chaos uses 4130 chromoly which is stronger. I like your choice of using Icon front coilovers and Icon rear shocks. I also installed this very simular setup on my 08 Tundra and it turned out great. When I purchased all my suspension componets I also bought the Total Chaos shackle kit , but never used them. I just put it in the Gen2 Tundra Classifieds - (2007-current) section. Let me know if you are interested. They are still brand new in the box. Could save you a few bucks in the long run.

I wanted to use the TC Uniball arm or the camburg uniball but I was told that if I was more of a point A to point B offroader and I used the truck on the highway alot, the camburg balljoint would suit my purposes just as well and they wouldnt have the vibration and humming issues that uniballs have at speed sometimes.

I will check out your shackles. If you dont mind a question.. why didnt you use yours? Were they unecessary? I would LOVE to see how your truck turned out if you can post some pics.

I got the balljoint control arms. As far as the website states and the guy at camburg they use chromoly steel tubing in the manufacture of both their arms.

I didn't use the TC shackles because I decided to use the Deaver 3 leaf mini pack instead. I will post the 2 pictures I have of my truck for you.

Good choices and decent pricing. Im doing something similar myself...Camburg Coilovers, Camburg BJ UCAs, ICON rear leaf expansion pack (1.5" lift) with Bilstein 5100's.

Have the same front setup right now, and considering basically the same rear setup (or maybe the 7100 rear dampers as they're rebuildable). Post up your observations of that setup over stock/TRD please!

I hope the TC shackles provide enough lift to the rear so that it sits a bit higher than the front.

I like how the lines of this truck allow it to make a shell look nice.

To all that have installed the camburg UCAs and Icon coilovers: I recently installed this on my 07 crewmax 4x4. I had a 3" spacer in before and was running 285/65/18 Nitto Trail Grapplers, I still have the same tire set up, same rims but after the install they now rub on the rear fender well (drivers side only)? The coilovers are set at the same height as the spacer lifted, if not a bit higher. If I had no rubbing before, why do I now? I think taking the mudflaps off will eliminate the rubbing, but I'm very curious as to why the rub now? Other people are running much larger tires with the same setup, no rubbing and mine didn't rub before with 3" spacer. Please help????
