I definitely forgot to add Camber Bolts to the list. Thanks for reminding me of that!You don't need the drive shaft spacer for sure and I don't think you need the shackles either. You will need a set of Adjustable Camber Bolts to get the alignment correct.
If you do purchase the Deaver leaf pack, then you're going to want to purchase the adjustable shackles. The Deaver leaf pack will lift a 4WD Titan approximately 2.5" in the rear. With the shackles, you'll be able to bring that down to roughly 1.5" lift.I definitely forgot to add Camber Bolts to the list. Thanks for reminding me of that!
As for the shackles, I was under the impression that they might be necessary with the Deaver leaf pack to make sure that the truck doesn't have a serious nose-down rake to it because of how much height the Deavers add.
I'd love to be wrong about that as it's just one less part to have to purchase.
Thanks for the replies, all. Feel free to keep them coming. I'm not committed to anything until I start ordering parts.
First, 08'+ you can only get maximum 3" of lift in the front before you begin to bind your lower ball joints.I have a few questions I would like to run by you all regarding suspension lift for my 2011 Titan Pro-4X.
In the past I've had a seriously modified Toyota FJ Cruiser with Icon / Total Chaos suspension setup and enjoyed the control and ride quality. I'd like to lift my Titan approximately 3 to 4 inches (no more, due to garage clearances at home and work) and do it right without completely breaking the bank. My truck spends 95% of its time on road and 5% light-duty trail riding. $2500 would be a good cap.
I'm considering the following components from PRG's online shop but am open to other sources if someone has a better idea. I'd like you all to help me look this plan over and make sure that I'm not buying anything unnecessary or omitting something important. Feel free to recommend alternatives.
I had been considering just doing the mini-lift and level kit, but I think that would just leave me wanting more. Thanks in advance!

Not sure on what height you are wanting to get out of this but be aware that the PRO-4X springs up front are 1" longer than other 08 and later 4x4. Meaning that when the Extended Travel Kit says you'll get 3 inches out of it, you're really going to only get 2" of front lift over what you currently have. Something I just found out as wellGuys,
Are the traction bars going to be necessary if I run the Deaver spring packs? I'm hearing from some of my Ford Raptor buddies (apples vs. oranges perhaps) that on their trucks, when they run Deaver springs instead of blocks, they don't need to use traction bars. Apparently Deaver's rep on their forum is using that as a reason they should buy Deaver springs instead of blocks.
I'm not adverse to buying what I need to do the job right, so if the traction bars are needed, then that's what I'll do.
Interesting. Thanks for the heads up on this. That might change my plans considerably, then.Not sure on what height you are wanting to get out of this but be aware that the PRO-4X springs up front are 1" longer than other 08 and later 4x4.

DKF isn't making trac bars anymore. I shot them an email yesterday for a price quote on their street bars and here's their reply:I think the list looks good. couple things, dirt king fabrication makes traction bars, and maybe see if nick would build you some uca's. maybe save some money hint hint. also total chaos makes ucas for titans too. nfab makes some traction bars too. just putting different options out there. PRG is a great company, but its not the only one. I think based off your fj build, a mini lift wont make you happy, you'll want coilovers.
really? Did you talk to nick on here? That sucks alot. I wanna get some of his products too.DKF isn't making trac bars anymore. I shot them an email yesterday for a price quote on their street bars and here's their reply:
"We no longer make them because of an unhappy customer, we don't want to deal with the hassle again"
It's a shame, I was looking forward to equipping my Titan w/ their products.
That's a reply to an email sent to Dirt King Fab yesterday. It sounds like only the traction bars not the bumpers and other stuff.really? Did you talk to nick on here? That sucks alot. I wanna get some of his products too.
