    Welcome to the community! So you have multiple options for leveling kits for 4th gens (2003-2009) ranging in brand, size, and price. A common choice to level out a 4th gen is 1" up front. You can lift/level with 2" up front and 1" in the rear, or 2.5" and 1.5", all the way up to 3" and 2". Common brands youll find for these kits are Daystar, Supreme Suspensions, Toytec, and Wheelers Offroad. Most of these can be found right on Wheelers website. Let us know if you have any further questions!

    I have the daystar 2.5"/1" lift/level kit on my 4runner. $125 on Amazon. It did exactly what I wanted it to do. Level the front and give me enough lift to slightly increase tire size and off-road capability. Didn't effect ride quality at all.

    Hey just joined the site today. Looks sick. I have a 2013 SR5 4x4. Did you do this yourself or have it installed? What size tires are you on now.

    I'm on 265/70/17 KO2s now. Had to do quite a bit of trimming to the front inner fender. I installed this myself, but I've been working on cars professionally for quite a few years now. You can do it in a day unless you're completely clueless.
