    Looking at lowering kits. May buy in January or March depending on how much money I can save. What are my options? The Tundra racing one is tried and true, but is there any other choice? Any drop coils or blocks work? I don't k ow much about suspension, but with instructions and a buddy, I would like to do the install myself... Said buddy is district manager for jiffy lube, so we could use the shop after hours....

    Well how low are you wanting to go? That will tell how much is going to be involved.

    doesn't matter if I can keep my current tires I just bought... there stock 265/70 r16.... the tundra racing will fit which is a 2/3.5 drop from my reading.

    Minus what I did, there isn't really. There are other readily available parts to be able to accomplish the same end result as mine though.

    Get an axle flip kit.

    Get QA1 coilovers with the top adapter for your truck. Yours is different than the XR.

    Add in low profile rear bump stops.

    Your tires would be on the verge of fitment. My stock spare still fit on my truck though, so yours might fit as well.

    Mine axle flip perches were from calvert racing. But they required extra work. There are plenty of kits from manufacturers on T.W. Those will be simple bolt on perches. That is where you want to look.

    Then www.xiiperformance.com You'll need to speak with them directly to explain the fact that you have a PreRunner.

    Most of the lowering kit components are listed in the link which Gadget posted.

    However, for the off-road flip kits(spring under axle), I do not know how much their costs are.

    Basically the same as the kit listed above, minus the rear shackle. I am using the OEM rear shackle. Which means that my truck sits nearly as high as a lowered XR. Higher than a DJM lowered XR.

    My method, is do-able. The kits posted are easier. Just depends on how low you want to go.

    That kit gadget posted looks to be the tundra racing kit. If it will get me low enough for the track, I'll get that kit.

    The upgrade to that kit would be the QA1 coilovers.

    So if I am understanding you correctly, you are saying get the tundra racing kit, and then add on QA1 coilovers?

    For front end adjustability, sometime down the road. If you are so inclined.
