Are you lifting the front too? What kind of lift you putting in there? I actually cant think of the last time I saw someone use an extended shackle on here so props to you for finding one and going for it!

That front is just begging to be lifted ;)

It's nice to see someone level their truck by LOWERING the rear and not lifting the front. Definitely going to look slick on the white DC. Your truck is similar to mine in some ways. :p

Truck looks real slick!

If I didn't actually go off-road, I would have done something similar!

Props to you man, it looks awesome! Can't wait for after pics.

No lift for me my friend, the rear is getting lowered 2"...If it was a 4x4 I would lift the front, but there is no reason to lift a 4x2. Plus she is a highway queen.

Nokz:

Thanks for the feedback... I think it will definetly look better, and still very functional. I wish more of the 4x2 Tundras would post here, but it sure seems to be a lift friendly forum and not the other way around.

And yes in some ways similar, and in other very different .

But thank you.

I personally think the whole lower leveled truck looks good, just has to be done right :)

oooooOOOOOOOOOooooooooo....

I see now! Just so used to people lifting it didn't even register that you could lower it...
But that'll look great, I'm not one for slammed trucks but yours would do well evening off that rake. I was worried the low-pro tires would look odd with a lift anyways :D

Looking forward to pics!

Truck will look good, especially with the 20s.

I was going to do this to mine with some belltech shackles, but getting a great deal on some off road style wheels, I have decided to lift the front to level it.

Waiting on the pics.

The truck looks good man. I've always thought about doing the same thing, I drive a 4x2 as well. I like the leveled look. I would like to see more pic's, maybe you could take a few in the day time so it would show up better. Looks good though.

The weather today is not anything to brag about, but we expect that in Houston.

I took a couple of pictures in the parking lot again, just to see the stance.

Also I went ahead and measured as cpearson817 requested.
Front 34"
Rear 34 3/4"

The truck definetly feels way better driving, it feels more controlable in a turn. Speaking of turn the next modification will be swaybars.

Let me know what you guys think, and feel free to ask whatever questions, or even bash on me for lowering a Tundra:cool:

Looks awesome!

Thanks for the measurements, that makes sense why the back end still looked a little tall to me. Are you planning on doing anything for that last 3/4" remaining?

Good job though!
