if you crank them up higher.. you will preload the spring more.. causing issues.
more fellas should pitch in.. as I dont have exp with your specific setup.. post up a pic of them and you should get some info.

if previous owner left it set at what Toytec pre-set it at, the website states it is preset to 2.5-3" of lift. Probably depends on what type of truck (double, access, or single cabs). I wouldn't go cranking it up too high, spring preload will be horrible.
edit: IIRC for every 1/8" of thread you move up or down on the collar, you lift or lower 1/4" overall. Someone correct me if that isn't the right values, but it was what I remembered.

3 inches is as high as you want to go, if you crank it up more itll start to cause problems. stock tacomas cant be lifted higher than 3 inches without other lift components.

Are the CO's installed on your truck ? If your happy with the looks and the ride, I wouldn't start cranking it higher. Things will only get worse.(ride, alignment, etc). Mine is preset at 2.5" and the ride is better than factory.
