    I have a quote from a recommended shop for $300 to install my 2/1 Cornfed spacer lift including alignment. I’d do it myself but no longer have the tools.

    Anyone have a recommendation.

    I’m in the North West San Antonio area.

    That's not a bad price at all. The alignment alone is near $100, right?

    I just installed that lift two weekends ago on my '20. Not a bad job at all, but for that price I'd have paid someone to do it just so I could be lazy.

    That’s my thinking. I’ve done enough of these over the years, I’m tired.

    Yup, seems like a decent install price. Do you happen to have links to the exact CF spacers you are installing?

    C&W Off Road was great. Chris the owner is as real as it gets. Straight shooter. Quoted a price and no surprises.

    Measures 37 1/2 at the rear and
    36 1/2 front. Gained exactly 1” in the rear and exactly 2” in the front

    Cornfed Suspension

    no longer looks weak in the front IMO

    before higher than the back in the photo.
    can you measure the height from the hub to the arch?
    What is included ?
    what has changed in the behavior of the machine?

    I measured from the ground to the top of the arch. Previously listed. 37 1/2 Rear, 36 1/2 front. Anytime you compress the springs with a spacer lift it will feel a bit tighter or a tad more stiff. DCF50057-4B9B-4E0C-A7DC-EA363E0CA9A4.jpg

    You guys may not believe this, heck I’m still skeptical. But my average mpg went from 18.5 to 19.5-20.2. I think the level kit allows better airflow and less drag. I do about 72mi a day mostly highway and or 45-60 mph. This is my first T4R and I’m really liking it.

    Just recently purchased my first 4Runner, could you give me a update on how the spacers are holding up? What’s the ride like?
    Thinking of just doing a 1” level in the front.

    The ride feels a tad stiffer but not in any way uncomfortable. No question, do the level kit but go with the 2.5” in the front and 1” in the rear. Kornfed products are top notch.
