Suspension Leveling and Mild Kits are one of the most popular aftermarket products for Toyota truck owners. Leveling systems not only transform trucks like the Tacoma into taller, better looking vehicle, but they also provide a more commanding view of the road. SST Lift Kits from ReadyLift® Suspension Inc., the leader in suspension leveling and lift systems, are the most economical and safe method of altering vehicle ride height, which also allows the consumer to upgrade his tires to a preferred larger size. Nothing looks better than a truck fit with an aggressive stance and that is exactly what ReadyLift® Smart Suspension Systems (SST) provide!
ReadyLift® Suspension Inc. has used their proven technological engineering methods to produce a SST Suspension Lift System for the 2005-2013 Six-Lug Toyota Tacoma trucks (P/N 69-5056) that lifts the truck 2.75″-3.0″ and includes a new tapered 2.0″ rear lift block. The intermediate Smart Strut Technology system fits all 2005-2012 Tacoma and Prerunner models including both 2WD and 4WD models. This kit provides the owner with the opportunity to upgrade to larger wheel and tire combinations up to 33-inches in diameter while retaining the great stock ride and handling characteristics. 32.5″ tire diameter is recommended. In order to fit 33″ tires you will have to do some minor trimming of the inner fenderwell.
NOTE: Our objective is to have your truck sit level or slightly below level. Each truck is different so the amount of lift achieved may vary between 2.75″ and 3.0″ in the front. TRD-equipped trucks often have less rake compared to a non-TRD truck. Measurements on some customer’s trucks have revealed as much as 1.0” difference in the factory front end height. Some earlier model Tacoma trucks came factory with a 2 leaf plus overload rear spring pack that had sagging issues. Toyota is replacing these packs with a 3+1 rear leaf pack. Trucks with 2+1 packs will want to take advantage of this new lift system that includes a 2.0″ rear lift block for a complete lift wall the way around and a stance which will give approximately a .5″ rear to front rake.
NOTE: 2011-2013 Tacoma applications: Toyota made minor changes to the Tacoma upper control arm suspension geometry. In some cases adding a leveling kit MAY affect the ability to correct the caster alignment to within factory specifications. If you have a 2011-2012 Tacoma with a leveling kit and the caster alignment specs cannot be put back to factory your truck will require an aftermarket upper control arm with adjustable caster/camber.
This is a complete suspension lift kit that includes a powder coated steel strut extension, front differential drop bracket, skid plate spacers and a 2-inch rear lift block. The SST strut extension and diff drop bracket has been designed to provide between 2.75″-3.0″-inches of front suspension lift while retaining the OEM safe suspension geometry. Unlike other kits, the ReadyLift® 3-inch suspension system requires no cutting or strut spring pre-loading and installs quickly and safely using the provided heavy-duty hardware. Quality step-by-step instructions are provided with every kit.
Professional installation time is estimated at two to three hours. An alignment will be necessary upon completion of installing the kit. Like all other ReadyLift kits, the 2005-2013 Six-lug Tacoma/Prerunner lift kit is guaranteed for life against manufacturing defects.
