    Strange picture. Does it include new UCAs but then uses spacers as the lift mechanism? That seems to re-use stock shocks, which are Hitachi and honestly just ok. Too soft for my liking, and might ride hard with a spacer.

    Also, appearently then includes new rear springs, which is a good thing, but talks about shock relocation, which shouldn't be necessary for a 2" lift. (CORRECTION, it's a 4" lift).

    Question, have you been in a 4Runner with 4" of lift? If you add a 33" tire, that would equate to about 5.5" of lift. That's quite a lot.
    I now understand why you'd need new UCAs and the shock relocation, but honestly, you'd probably want a better quality shock with this setup, as the stock shocks probably don't have the travel you'd want from this.

    The brand is good, i have it on my Tundra. Just make sure you get the steel lift and no the rubber spacer. The rubber has been known to squeak after time. However i have never experianced them on a 4runner. My tundra is only a Level kit with a small rear spacer to even it out nicely. No clue how there full blown lifts are
