    Getting ready to pull the trigger on a 3” lift. Trying to decide between The Toytec Unlimited, ToyTec/bilstein 5100, or EMU. I’ve seen a lot of threads talk about 6112/5160, toytec unlimited, dobinson, the lean on the passenger side, and the rake look. Being new to the 4Runner world all this can get pretty confusing. Just when I make up my mind I see another thread telling me to do other wise. I won’t be doing much wheeling as my 2016 TEP is my daily driver. Also any tips to level it out as much as possible after lift. Putting on 33’s, not adding any weight, and decided to order spc ucas. Also trying to stay under $1,500. THANKS.

    I’ve been hearing SPC may not be the best course of action and to stick with Total Chaos or Camburg.

    There is a thread on TW about issues people have had with SPC and the weld breaking

    If you’re looking to level and not have the rake you may have to go less in the rear.

    Once you do get the lift installed you can also do the KDSS calibration per the attached.

    I have a Toytec Ultimate with 5100's and 650# front springs. It seems to work good. Dealer said it did not need UCA's to align. Ride is good, handling is good, and it is under 1,500. 20170819_063407_001.jpg

    I have SPC's on both my 5th Gen T4R and my 1st Gen Taco. No problems on either. Yes SPC had the weld issues but that was on the previous design and I also like the fact that I don't have to deal with uni balls. The T4R has the newer version and I have the caster set to 5 deg., I haven't seen anyone that can get to 5 degrees with Total Chaos or Camburg.
