    I have a 2015 4 runner SR5 . I am considering putting in 2 inch spacers up front. Tuff Country 2 Inch Leveling Lift Kit - 52002
    Tax Paid
    Tuff Country 2 Inch Leveling Lift Kit - 52002
    $74.99 . I am not doing off road. Is there any concern if I do this for the overall well being of the unit? Dealership and a local shop will not do the work. I am puzzled. Thanks !

    kdss is a self adjusting system. put too high of a level and the computer may be ramped up more than its supposed to. I'm sure they have an issue with doing a level because they dont want to be liable for any damage that may occur to kdss(long run). true is 1.5" maybe a 2" level will probably be ok with no issues. that's what in think, cant really speak to it tho I'm running full icons

    He doesn’t have KDSS on a SR5.

    Most people frown on the spacer lifts but if you don’t intend on using it off road, it shouldn’t be an issue. Could look into the bilstein 5100 series shocks as they have several settings for you to set the height.

    I have Old Man Emu suspension on my 2017 TRD ORP with KDSS and haven’t had any issues
