im thinking of getting a lift for my 07.
i wouldnt be seeing any hard off-roading.
some light offroading here and there.

theres a member selling a truxx spacer lift
for about 200. has anyone heard of any
reviews on these and will they be okay?

thanks again guys for even reading.
hope to get some feedback.

Most on here would advise you to consider going with a coilover lift instead of the spacer lift, even if your initial plans are for just "light offroading." A level lift with OME 883s or even 884s won't be much more than the spacers. With these front springs, you should be able to run your stock shocks without any issues.

you can get 884s for right around $150 new. if you have some patience, 883 and 884 coils pop up with regularity at the blue room for $100 or so.

so if i just get the 883/884 front springs...
will i need some spacers for the rear?
or will those front springs be enough.

883s will get rid of the rake, and be fine if you don't plan on getting an aftermarket plate bumper (a pre-runner bumper should be fine).

get 884s if you plan on adding one of the lighter aftermarket plate bumpers. anything beyond that, and you'll probably want to re-think your entire suspension setup, including the rear suspension and aftermarket shocks all around.

but, to answer your question, 883s and 884s for the front are fine. don't worry about rear shocks or springs unless you feel like you must lift it, and i'm pretty sure there are no spacers for the rear. :eek:
