Basic leveling kit install: :cool:

Step 1 Get your Tundra up in the air. Remove the wheels, skid plate, and the sway bar links. I suggest using air tools because it makes your work a lot easier.

Step 2 Next disconnect the spindle from the lower ball joints. Loosen the lower control arm bushings.

Step 3 Disconnect and remove the struts. Bolt on the spacer with curve facing out.

Step 4 Reinstall the struts. You may need to use a jack stand to get the lower strut bolt.

Step 5 Reconnect the spindle to the lower ball joint. Use a ratchet strap to help make thing easier.

Step 6 Next, install bump stop washers. Install diff drop spacers. Here's a tip, loosen the steering rack before you begin. This makes it a lot easier to attach the nuts to the new bolts.

Step 7 Replace wheels. Lower the truck to the ground and reinstall swaybar links.

Step 8 Tighten lower control arm bushings and get a new alignment. That's it, you are done.

Also of importance...

Get a case of your favorite beer and chill.

Call your buddy who owes you a favor and tell him to get your ass over here, and bring tools. (hopefully he knows what he's doing)

Order a pizza when your done and drink the rest of the beer.

Take pics of your ride and submit on TUNDRA GEEKS!
