Re: 07 tacoma levelling

Measure the the heights of the front and rear and decide how much you need to raise the front to match the rear.
You will have to compute the the ratio of the spring center to the swing arm pivot. With the ratio you can compute what thickness spacer you need. Or you can just guess at what thickness you need.

Be advised that adding spacers to the springs will change the suspension geometry. It could affect the handling of the truck.

Re: 07 tacoma levelling

I just bought an '07 Tacoma Double Cab 4x4 with the TRD Off Road package a couple of weeks ago. The levelling lift I had installed is 2 1/2" in the front and 1" in the rear. It made it sit up just enough to make the stock tires look too small...great excuse to get new tires & wheels! I just bought a set of BFG 285/70-17 A/T's this afternoon. I had to trim a couple of inches of the plastic inside the front fenders, but nothing major. What a difference in the look.
