    Default 2.4 Spacer lift and towing

    Hello, I recently purchased a readylift 2.4 inch spacer lift from a member on another forum for a great price. I tow my toy hauler probably 5 or so times a year, will this be a bad idea and be to much lift for the front? I do have airbags on the back to help level while towing. Also my truck is only used on the street and I baby the hell out of it do you think that the spacer lift will ruin my suspension over time. Thanks for your help.

    No, you'll be just fine. The big concern is one you've already taken care of with the air bags. Have you installed the kit yet? If not, just make sure you have the truck aligned after installation.

    BTW, welcome to the forum.

    I agree
    You didn't say how big or how heavy your toy hauler is.
    Should be fine if your not over weight

    Thanks for the replies! The toy hauler is probably around 9000lbs fully loaded with 2 motorcycles, water, and gear. Most of the time its just 1 bike or no bikes, and if we are going somewhere with hook ups I dont have to carry water.

    Just make sure there isn't too much toung weight and the load is well balanced
    An RV store should be able to make sure your loaded correct.
    Good job on the air bags.
    I have never been impressed with Toyota rear springs.

    Just my 2 cents

    Weight distribution hitch makes a big difference
