Re: Does a 2" or 2-1/2" front leveling change handling?
Ok. I've seen a few threads and posts on this but I wondered if I can get VERY specific here. I'm wanting to have a 2" or 2-1/2" front end leveling kit installed. Here are my questions: (1) Is the 2" just right or is the 2-1/2" just right as far as level with the back? (2) Does the polyurethane coil over spacer really reduce road noise and last as long as the aluminum? (3) Does leveling the front end turn the handling and ride into crap? I love the way the stock suspension rides, but I HATE the stock front end rake! Why, oh why didn't Toyota level these from the factory? Keep in mind, I don't have much to spend, I just want to even it up without sacrificing the handling, and smooth road ride.
The DayStar Kit (inexpensive) I purchased for my 2013 TT was perfect.
It allowed me to run 285's with no issues and I was happy with the ride quality on the highway. Speed bumps were a be'Otch tho. If you just want to level the front the 2" kit will be fine.
