Which size extended travel?

I just ordered eibach coils and a 2" aal for a 3 inch lift, tomorrow im ordering bilstein 5100 for the front. But for the back im getting bilstein 5125 (http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-13...ce-shocks.html) these ARE the right ones huh? Im not sure which size valving and travel I should get to accomodate for the 2inch aal?

Edit: also, noob question, but can someone explain what a tsb on the leaf is and if i need one?
Thanks

You'll want to measure your compressed and extended lengths without the shocks to match the lengths.

We need more info on your truck. Is it a 1st or 2nd gen? What year? Straight 4 or V6? 5 or 6 lug?

That being said, a quick phone call to Downsouth Motorsports is all it takes. They should know exactly what you need with all the Tacoma suspensions they sell

I would think that a 10" travel shock would work well for you, but I'm just speculating based on similar lifts on 2nd gens.

TSB for a 2001? Really?

TSB stands for Technical Service Bulletin. When a manufacturer feels there is something that needs fixing and/or replacing on a vehicle that's already been produced and sold they issue a TSB.

But they're not around forever and dealers hate doing them
