AAL vs blocks?

have had 2" spacers on the front to keep my truck level for only a couple months for temporary decent look but now have the extra money to lift my truck. looking for a true 3 inches but was wondering if i could run the spacers and buy a set of 5100's to raise an inch to give me 3 in the front then buy blocks or AAL in the rear with 5100's. and found a complete 3" setup on ebay from skyjacker for 300$ with the AAL included. just not to sure where to go in this situation so hopefully you guys can help.

Blocks cause axle wrap. I'm not too sure of the benefits or disadvantages of an AAL.

AALs are a better way to go, the ride may be a bit stiffer but the block will cause axle wrap. The AAL will increase hauling capacity a little bit. I've heard of blocks cracking and other horror stories with blocks.

Thats a good idea. I don't know how the skyjacker kits are on tacomas, but most people go with 5100's all around or OME setups. I would check out wheeleroffroad, toytec lifts and DSM.

This might be a better kit to go with, based on what you're looking at.
