    Hey everyone.

    It's been years since I've been on a car thread but I remember its usually the best place to get info on modifying a vehicle. First time owning a 4Runner 2015 SR5. It's stock except I put rims and tires and already regretting the tires cause I wish I would've gone bigger. Well hope to get to meet some of you guys

    Actually yeah. I was about to post a thread asking some questions on it but since you asked maybe you can help.
    I want to do a 3" lift. Nothing fancy, just hoping to raise it some to put bigger tires. I called the local shop here in Katy and they want to charge me about $750 bucks for some spacers. I looked it up and they are fairly easy to do myself and it would give me a chance to get to know my 4Runner a bit (I am mechanically inclined). I searched and couldn't find one that said "This will fit your truck" So I called Toyotec but the guy said I could only use a spring and spacer kit. Springs require a spring compressor which I don't have and it puts me back at square one.

    So I'm looking for a leveling /spacer kit for a 2015 SR5 4runner (without that shock hydraulic thing) Any help?

    Thanks.

    Toytec does compress the coils on the shock (I believe they charge $100 for it) as an option if that's something you're open to.

    You can do a spacer lift, but that's up to you. You can find spacers from $100+. $750 for a spacer kit, I would opt for a suspension lift at that rate for a bit more.

    Avoid spacers. Much nicer ride with swapped coilovers and springs.
