Alright guys.... if I have a '07 TRD... what size spacer do I need in the front to make it perfectly level? I've measured it out (with exactly a half tank of fuel).... one side is 2 1/8 difference front to rear and the other side is 1 7/8" difference front to rear. I'm thinking I could split the difference and raise it 2" in the front.... but I don't want to be disappointed that I didn't go with a 2.5" lift in the front. I don't have any interest in raising the rear... just going for the look of the vehicle.... and I'd like to run a little bit bigger tire....

Thanks for the reply and the pics.... I ended up getting a 1" spacer, which apparently lifts it 2" at the wheel.... I looked at doing 2.5".... but it sat just a little nose high..... I'll post some pics when I get it installed... gonna have it anodized black first.

just to help you guys understand a little better.... if you think of the A arm on the truck..... if the strut was mounted right the spindle.... its a 1:1 ratio.... so a 2" spacer would lift it exactly 2"... but the strut is mounted in the middle of the A arm.... so the ratio is different.... you only have to lift it 1" at that location to get it to equal 2" out at the wheel.

I got a little off schedule.... but I got the spacers installed last night.... and I'm very happy with the results... the 1" spacer lifted it exactly 2" and the truck sits perfectly level, front to back. It was too dark to snap photos... so I will take some next chance I get.
