    With 3” up front, maybe. Read through the threads here, plenty of info on 3” lifts.

    We put a 3"/2" on ours with the diff. drop in the front. I would love to tell you that the diff drop will stop the needle bearing problem in the front but it won't. Ours was good until right after the 5k mile checkup. The diff drop kit will help CV angles. RevTek kit/ diff drop.

    Think you need to do more reading in the suspension section.

    There is tons of info there better than everyone explaining one thing at a time.

    Was referencing the on going needle bearing problem in the front diff., it was supposed to be "calmed" down by the install of a diff. drop kit, it is taken care of by the dealer. The modifications to your 4Runner when you install a spacer lift are minimal. We installed a 3"/2" RevTek kit, new rear shocks came with the kit, so did the front diff. drop kit. Not sure if you need shocks with only 1.25" rear.
