The Pro Comp Nitro Kit (2 Inch Rear and 3 Inch Front) leveling kit is a high-quality, well-built level/lift kit for the 5th Generation 4Runner. This leveling kit is a little more robust than some of the more simple level kits out there. While most leveling kits at the $100-$200 price range come with front spacers, the Pro Comp takes it a step further. This kit comes with 2″ beefy rear coil spring spacers and 3″ front strut spacers.

With this precision engineered coil spring spacer and strut spacer leveling kit, you will get heavy-duty blocks along with application-specific designed hardware (E-coat finish on U-bolts with Zinc plated nuts).
This is a bolt-on leveling kit that installs on the factory strut assembly. The Pro Comp kit is an easy installation and can easily be returned to a stock stance.
While this is strictly a leveling kit with coil spring spacers and strut spacers, there are many other options that Pro Comp and other brands offer with advanced shocks and coilovers. The Pro Comp kit is a happy medium between a basic leveling kit and a more expensive leveling kit or full lift kit.
There are a handful of other leveling kit options available out there. It’s really on your preference to decide which lift or leveling kit is right for your daily driving or Off-Road driving needs. In most cases, a leveling kit should offer plenty of clearance.

Why a Leveling Kit Instead of a Lift Kit?
With a leveling kit, you can add a larger set of wheels and tires without rubbing with adding the ability to attack larger trails with advanced terrain. With a leveling kit, you can also remove the raked look (nose slanted down) that comes stock off the lot. Choosing a leveling kit over a suspension lift kit will save you money.
Money is the biggest reason why anyone would buy a leveling kit over a suspension lifts. Most lift kits and suspension kits on the market are built for serious Off-Roading. Most high-quality suspension lift kits are $2000+ ($3000 for our Icon) and a high-quality leveling kit like this Pro Comp is only $350.
If you plan on doing serious Off-Roading, buy a suspension kit, not a leveling kit. If you plan on cruising around town and hitting the occasional trail here and there, buy a leveling kit.
Leveling kits are easier to install than suspension kits and lift kits. You can check out our Stage 2 Icon Suspension Installation for more detail on what it takes to install a suspension kit. You will have a much easier time installing a leveling kit as opposed to a full suspension kit with upper control arms.
