Merideth: If you're looking for one of the easiest and most affordable ways to gain some ground clearance, these Supreme Suspensions 2-Inch Pro Billet Front Strut Spacer Leveling Kit will be a great addition to your '07 or newer Tundra. Now, this kit will come with two spacers for the front struts to eliminate that factory rake and create a more aggressive stance for the truck while also gaining some clearance when taking your truck off-road.Not to mention, this will be great for the Tundra owner who is looking for all of those benefits in an easy and affordable solution rather than a lift kit that will cost a bit more and require some more time. These spacers will be made of a CNC-machined billet aluminum construction, meaning durable and able to last.Now the spacers will also have a nice black anodized finish on top which will protect the aluminum from any corrosion underneath. Now I would like to call out that the spacer itself will measure in at roughly 1.5 inches, however, with the suspension geometry and the spring compression, after they're installed, that's what's gonna give you that 2 inches of lift in the front. This kit will also include everything that you need in order to install it on your truck.Now, as for tires, guys, 35s will fit but will require modification, so 33s will be the recommended size and give you a comfortable fit with a decent amount of room inside the wheel well.As far as the price is concerned, this kit is gonna come in at roughly $100, making it, again, very affordable. Now, when taking a look at leveling kits and lift kits, usually they range in price from what's included in them. So, kits around this price range will usually be pretty similar to this one, or they may include rear spacers as well or just be a different size instead of this 2-inch lift here.Now you'll also see more involved solutions like replacement struts, leaf springs, and additional components, all to compensate for that additional height. Now, I think if you're looking for a simple way to get some height in the front and keep it on a budget, then this is gonna be a great pick.Now install is gonna be a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you about two hours to get the job done with the correct tools. Now, at this point, we can head over to the shop and check out a detailed breakdown of that install and what it looks like. So, that's gonna wrap it up for me. Let's go ahead and jump into it.Man: Tools used for this install, a hammer, large pry bar, small pry bar, a large 3/8 extension, short 3/8 extension, 24, 22, 19, and 14-millimeter sockets, a 17-millimeter ratcheting wrench, 14-millimeter ratcheting wrench, 22-millimeter wrench, 1/2-inch drive impact gun, a cutting pliers, and a 3/8 electric impact gun.Hey, guys, I'm gonna show you how to uninstall and install our front leveling kit here on our 2018 Tundra, so let's get started. So, the first thing we're going to do on our uninstall is we're going to have to remove our tie rod here to get this out of the way. Once we get that out of the way, we'll come down. We have two bolts down, one holding the sway bar, and one holding the bottom of the strut. We have four bolts up top here and two bolts underneath here I'm gonna remove that holds the bottom ball joint in so we can just move this out of the way. That'll give us access to remove our strut.So, now the first thing we're gonna do is take a pair of cutting pliers here and just bend this cotter pin and get it to move here. Then I'm gonna put my cutting pliers on, just like that, and we'll be able to grab a hold of it and pull that cotter pin out. We will replace that, put a new one in. Once we get that out of the way, I'm going to take our 24-millimeter socket here and take our 1/2-inch impact gun and we're gonna remove the nut like that. Once you get the nut removed...And I'm gonna take my ball-peen hammer, give it a smack right there, there we go, and then we'll just get that and hang that out of the way. So, now we're gonna remove our sway bar bolt right here. I'm gonna take my 19-millimeter and my 1/2-inch impact gun and get this out of the way. So, now we're just gonna spin it out and pull that out by hand. That'll get this bolt out.So, next, we're going to take a 22-millimeter wrench, a 22-millimeter socket on my 1/2-inch ratchet, we're going to take this long bolt out here that holds the lower strut in, and then just take my gun, blow the nut off, just like that. Like that. So, there's four bolts up top here, one, two, three, four. Take my 14-millimeter ratcheting wrench and I'm gonna get up here and we're gonna loosen these all the way up, starting with the back one, and this one back here. And then I'm going to back the nuts off all the way except I'm going to end up removing I think two of them. You could probably remove three if you wanted to because we're gonna get underneath and lower the lower control arm down and then it'll just let the strut hang here for now. So, I am gonna remove three, and just let one on with a couple of threads. That way, the strut, when you drop the lower control arm, the strut doesn't fall straight out, has something to hold it up there until you get up and grab it.So, now I'm gonna take my 22-millimeter on my 1/2-inch gun. There's two bolts right here, one here, one here. This holds the lower control arm bottom part with the ball joint in it to the spindle. So, we're just gonna loosen these up and remove them. Same on this side. And now that I got those out of the way, I'm gonna be able to move our assembly here. And now we'll get a pry bar, pry it down, and we'll be able to move our strut out of the way.So, now we have everything disconnected here. We have the sway bar out. This is ready. The bottom bolts are out. Our spindle is just hanging here. I'm gonna take a pry bar like this. I'm gonna wedge it back in here under the lower control arm, and I'm just gonna not slip off like that. Push down and get this out of the way like that. And then once we have it out of the way...again, I only left one bolt holding it in. I'm gonna take this nut, take it off, and remove the strut. And now you're gonna wanna repeat this uninstall on the other side.So now that we have our strut assembly on our table here, we have it removed, we're gonna put our spacer on. Now this spacer fits one way, you're gonna see. You're gonna line everything up with the holes, kind of just like that, and slide this into place. Once we get this into place, our factory nuts that we took off the top, we're going to use them to put in here and start these. That's what's gonna hold it in place. So, I'm just gonna spin them on like that, get all four started. We'll do this one, and we'll do our bottom one.So, what I did was I just put our four nuts on here and just got them started. What I'm gonna do now is I'm gonna take my 14-millimeter on my 3/8 gun and I'm gonna start running these in and tighten them up. Once we get those all tight, now we're ready to reinstall our strut assembly.So, now we're going to take our strut assembly, I'm gonna lift it up and get it up into place here. Once I get it up into here, what I'm gonna do is take two of our bolts here. They have a lock washer and a flat washer. I'm gonna line this up, get the holes lined up, and start the top bolts to hold the strut into place. So, I'm gonna take my bolt, stick it through the top here, and I'm going to hold this up into place here and try to line it up with the hole. My hand might be in the way, but I need to be able to find the first hole. There we go. I'll move my hand here in a second, like that. Now I got the first one started. I'm gonna start the second one right there. And we have two more, one in the back here and one in this corner. Now I'm just gonna get them started, all of them. And that'll hold the strut in place, and then we'll work on putting the bottom of the strut in.So, now as you can see, we have our strut in place here. It's held up by the four bolts. As you can tell, this part down here is kind of turned a little bit, and we're gonna turn that right now. So, what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna use this hand extension. You can use a punch or a screwdriver, and I'm just gonna give this a turn to line it up so we can get it when it falls into place there, pretty much like that. That'll line it up. That way we'll be able to get the bolt in.Next, what we're gonna do is take a pry bar. We're gonna pry down on the lower control arm and get this back into place. So, now I'm gonna take a large pry bar and I'm gonna push down on this lower control arm. The larger the pry bar you have, the better. I have a pretty big one here. You can also use a jack handle. You can put it in there, wedge it in there, pry down. The more leverage you have, the better it is to get the control arm to go down, pretty much like that. Got it in place.Now we'll get ready and we'll lower it down enough that I can get the bolts started, push that through, then we can start re-hooking up our suspension. So, what I'm gonna do is take two pry bars, a smaller one, and a bigger one. I have this one back here I'm gonna pry up, then I'm gonna get this one underneath it and lift up. I'm gonna move the second one over here and just push down on the control arm, and so I can get it to line the hole up so I can put the bolt in. I'm trying to hold it there, just keep moving around until, there we go, we get that bolt started. Now that I got it started, I'm just gonna tap it through with my hammer, get that one started.Next, we'll work on getting our lower pad here back in place. We're gonna have to lower the vehicle down, jack up with a jack to get this so that we can start the bolts. So, now I'm gonna just jack up on the bottom control arm. I'm gonna get it up high enough so that we can line those bolts up. Now we'll get them bolts lined up, get them started, and tighten them back up to put the spindle back to the lower control arm.So, now what I'm gonna do is try to line these up here, put this bolt through, and you'll be able to move this around to get the bolt started. I'm gonna try to get one of them started at least, and then we can bring it up into place closer. So, now that I'm under here, I got this lined up, I'm gonna start these two bolts, got them in place. We got them started. This is gonna give us the ability to tighten this back up and put this whole assembly together. I still have it up on the jack. I ended up taking an extension here, going up, lining the holes up, and getting them started.Now I'm gonna take my 22-millimeter here on my impact gun and I'm gonna run these in. And now you're gonna want to make sure you torque everything to manufacturer specs on your vehicle. So, now that we have these in, I'll lower the jack down. We'll install our sway bar, which looks pretty close already, and we'll put our tie rod back on.So, next, what we're gonna do is connect our sway bar. I'm just going to line this up here. All right. Now we have that started. I'm gonna take my 19-millimeter on my 1/2-inch gun and run it in.Next, we'll install our tie rod. So, now we're gonna install our tie rod here, just gonna push it up into place like that, start our nut, and run it down like that. And I'm gonna give it a good hit here with our gun. Again, we'll install a new cotter pin. Take my cotters, bend the one tab back up. What I usually do is just line it up, push it down into place just like that.Now we'll take our 14-millimeter, we'll tighten up our bolts up top. So, now we're gonna go up top here. These aren't 14 only. They're actually 17. The bottom ones here were 14. So, I'm gonna get up here with this ratcheting wrench, tighten these up. Do the same for this one, and we'll tighten it back. Now that we have these all tightened up, we'll go down underneath and we'll tighten up our 22-millimeter that holds our strut in. So, now we're going to tighten up this bolt here. I'm gonna take my 22-millimeter wrench, take my 22-millimeter on my 1/2-inch gun, and tighten this up. And now you're gonna want to repeat this whole uninstall and install procedure on the opposite side.That wraps up this review and install of our Supreme Suspensions 2-Inch Pro Billet Front Strut Spacer Leveling Kit for '07 and newer Tundras.
