Don’t know much about lift kits but want to put one on my new TRD sport thinking three 3-3 1/2 inches. What’s my best option? Will also have some type of company installing it
Will this affect my warranty?

It is not hard at all to install suspension, and you will save a bunch of money by doing it yourself. the best route is to get new suspension, Bilstein 5100's are a good cheap option and can give you a solid couple inches. If you have a larger budget go with icon, fox, or king adjustable coilovers.

I have Bilstein 5100 front and back, with Old Man Emu 887 springs in the front. This will give you close to 3 inches in the front. Depending on what you are planning on doing offroad, you can get a 1" spacer in the back like I originally did. This should level the truck out pretty well.

Can anyone elaborate on the affect a 5100s and block or leaf set up would have on the factory warranty? Also are there any other modifications needed to the truck in order to make the 5100s setup work (such as diff drop or cutting)?

From what I've heard (from other forums and the dealership I go to), changing the suspension components does not affect the warranty, *unless* it directly impacts a failure on a part that your warranty does cover. If you do take the truck to a shop to get the install done, the shop will most likely warranty the parts and labor they install. After the suspension work is done, Toyota will not cover any of the parts related to what you had done. This is what I gathered from swapping parts on mine.

Doing a 5100/add-a-leaf setup at about 2” lift, no other modifications are necessary, especially not the diff drop. Upgrading your upper control arms and installing extended rear brake lines are good practice, though not entirely necessary. Cutting isn’t either depending on your tire size, and even then you don’t necessarily need to. I run 285/75r16 with no cab mount chop, but there is some rubbing off road.

exactly, well put. 5100's are a great route to go.

5100's all around 3-500$ depending on where you go. I believe Offroad Warehouse sells a 5100 kit for about 340+
