I'm looking to do a body lift/levelling kit on my truck to make sure I have good clearance for my new wheel setup. I'm new to Tacoma's and trucks in general. I've be sourcing out various body lifts and have decided to go with 3". Everywhere I've looked, it appears to show that you would get a 3" spacer block for the front shocks and either a 1.5 or 2" for the rear leafs. Questions:
1) Does the rear sit higher a bit then the front? Is that the reasoning to the 3" to 2" block difference?
2) I recall someone telling me that with the body lift, I'd also need some sort of cover for my steering column as with the lift, it needs to be covered and some with some lines that need to be extended. Correct me if I'm wrong but is this required for Tacoma's? I don't see this being included for any of the body lifts/levelling kits I've seen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
