I just had the same lift installed today. I measured it and I'm sitting about 1 inch lower in the front with no rear block or AAL. A little frustrated thinking i was getting 3 inches and only got about 2.125" out of the lift kit. Any ideas why this is happening, and have you talked to toytec about it? Any input would be appreciated! Thanks

I have been researching a 3 inch lift as well and came across this old post and saw your recent comment. My guess is you used the Toytec/Eibach front coils that only provide 1.6 inches of lift instead of the Toytec 521600 front coil which provide 2.5 inches of lift and 3 inches with a top spacer (optional). The 3 inch lift is a kit, so not sure why people are buying the parts separately and getting the wrong coils. Can you confirm what coils you used? How are you 1 inch lower in the front with 2 inches added up front and nothing in the rear? That would mean prior to the lift your rear was 3 inches higher than the front? Doesn't sound right.

I had a what toytec is calling a 3" coil spacer installed on my 2013 Tundra Crewmax 2WD and I only got 2.125 inches of lift out of it. Pretty disappointing. They are saying that my truck is too heavy and creating the sag in the front. Don't really believe that but whatever. No one can figure out what is going on. Toytec basically said they don't guarantee any lifts to what it claims and that each car is different. I get that, but it's not even close. I'm taking it back to the shop next week, they are going to pull a coil to see what part number I have, maybe they gave me the wrong part. My fault for not checking it beforehand. If they gave me the correct parts I might just buy another 1/2 spacer that would put me at about 3" lift dead on, only thing it my bolts might now be long enough. Either way it's frustrating and now I'm looking at more labor cost and possibly more parts. I don't even know if I could get bigger tires in there the way it is right now. Anyone have any idea of why it's not lifting to the correct height??

Hello,
I am sorry that were disappointed in our 3'' spacer lift, we have tested them on 2WD Tundra's and have experienced less lift out of them we do have it stated in the description below the product.
Let us know if you have any other questions!

Ya, you might wanna do your homework a little before just buying a lift kit to join the brolife. I ordered Bilstein 5100 extended travel shocks, toytec 3 inch front coil springs, toytec 1 inch block lift in the rear and, extended u joints. So actually I went less and got the ride I wanted because I researched lifting my truck before just doing it. Also I'm on the lowest notch on the Bilsteins and got 3 inches but that could be because I have a first gen tacoma and might not be able to achieve the higher lift like the gen two. I have nothing bad to say about the support you receive over the phone either, guys at toytec are very helpful and knowledgeable from my chats with them.
