Toyota is investigating a rumor that lift kits could be causing steering rack failures in 2009-2012 Toyota Tundra pickup. How could this be possible? Does this rumor have any merit?
Toytec Lifts was started in 2004 with a simple idea for Toyota lift kits at a reasonable price. The company has since expanded into a retailer of hundreds of products and accessories for Toyota trucks. We manufacture our well known “ToyTec” lift kits and suspension products. We also stock a HUGE inventory of Toyota suspension parts and off road accessories from dozens of other manufacturers.
A recent commenter on our Tundra tire replacement guide asked:
I’m a new owner of a 2008 Toyota Tundra with a 3 inch lift kit, and I’ve noticed that the ride on my lifted 2008 is much rougher than the ride on a new 2011. My question is: What can I do to improve the ride quality on my lifted truck?
While lift kits usually degrade a truck’s ride and handling (at least most commonly installed kits), there are some things you can do to “treat” the rough ride problem.
