Good Idea for Lift?

Ok, I am still a newbie but I have been looking at a lot of different setups for a lift on my 2003 prerunner. I keep finding myself going back to the Bilstein 5100's and 2" shackles from toytec.

i think this will save the cost of buying shackles, but idk because of my ignorance. Can someone tell me if I can get Bilstein 5100's for the front with my stock coilovers, and Rough Country Nitro 9000 shocks for a 2" lift in the rear? If I went this route would I need shackles or an AAL?

This is the link to the rear Rough Country shocks.

I am not looking to do a ton of off-roading, mainly a daily driver and some occasional driving through some washes...

Truck info: 2003 Tacoma SR5 PreRunner. 2WD 3.4L V6.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Shocks by themselves in the rear won't lift it. You need an aal, block, or shackle and an aal is the best way to go out of those three. Don't know much about Ranchos but 5100's all around seems to be a great setup.

I just got 5100's all the way around with the 2" toytec shackles. Looks and rides great, you won't be disappointed! Also, pretty easy to install.
