    Hi

    I’m looking to order my 22 t4r trd off road premium with Kdss soon. I’m looking to moderate lift it to fit 275 or 285 tires and was told 2inch or 2.5 is the most you can lift on a kdss but not sure how true that is. When is the control arms needed? Around 2.5 to 3inch? I would like to see what suspension lifts you running.

    I was looking at bilstein 5100 with stock springs and what height will I need 1inch rear springs in the rear?

    I just lifted my 21 ORP with KDSS using a Toytec aluma boss 2.5. I don't have the before and after measurements but I have 285/70R17s on it. Seems to be good.

    I believe at more than 3” you start to potentially have issues with KDSS not being able to accommodate the extended travel.


    This should provide some useful info while you research what lift to go with:

    I have a 2020 TRD ORP w/KDSS and I had Toytec 3” front and 2” rear springs, Bilstein 5100s all the way around, and SPC UCAs installed. The tires are Michelin Defender LTX in a 285/70/17 on TRD Pro wheels. No other modifications were necessary as far as tire rub. The ride quality is great.

    How did you get those brown spots on the tires?

    Hey Vito. Love the grey Pro wheels. Matt or glossy? Why not (if not) glossy?

    No issues yet with a decent amount of off-road use.

    One thing about KDSS to look out for is dirt collecting in the KDSS accumulator skid on the driver's side frame rail. It's easily removed with 2 bolts and should be cleaned out anytime you get dirty. :)

    It looks like tire blooming, my KO2 are doing it and I have to use a dressing to prevent it.
    https://www.torquedetail.com/blogs/car-detailing/fix-brown-tires-blooming

    As far as KDSS and lifting height, I was almost at 4" in front with no issues before adding the bumper and winch weight taking it down to 3".
