So I put in my 3inch spacers form toytec about a week ago and I'm pretty disappointed with how my truck looks. The front and rear sit level at 37 inches but it looks like its leaning forward which I cant stand. Does anyone else have this same lift but different results? And also, is there anything I can do to get an extra inch in the front or lower the rear an inch? Let me know whatever you think

its a 2005 4x4 double cab

I do not have that lift, but, not sure of your problem. You say the truck is level at 37".

Is it a perception issue that looks off? I presume you measured on level ground with centerline for
the wheel and using the same point on your fender well or flare? I would not move or add anything just yet, unless it really is different in height from back to front.

I measured from the ground to the same point on the wheel well. The rep from Toytec said the 2inch kit usually levels a tundra out. so i dont understand why mine is barely level

Yes, i realize its level. It just appears not to be, so Im trying to figure out how to get either an inch in the front or do something to the rear.

4.5" Tuff Country lift w/o the rear lift block, remove a leaf from your springs, drop shackles for the rear, lower psi in rear tires, air up the front tires, throw in a couple hundred lbs of weight in the bed. Many options.

To lower the rear, you'd need longer shackles. I've seen shorter ones, which raise the rear. I've never looked for longer ones.

By the way guys, on your front leveling kits, are they metal or hard rubber? I ordered the 2' kit from Tuff Country and they are rubbers. I still haven't put them on. :-\
