You said 10" travel at the wheel. 10" stroke shocks will give you more than 10" at the wheel.

I did not know AP had extended brake lines, thanks.

If I went with AP 3" lift springs, would TRD Billies be enough until I found better rear shocks?

You could run them for the time being. They would limit down travel and may limit uptravel (that I'm not sure of tho).

How do people actually measure the amount of travel they have?

I'm assuming the frame notch from my lowered days allows more up travel, right?

It depends on the bumpstops, tire size(hitting fender) , breaklines and the collapsed length of the shock. these are all variables to rear travel.

IIRC the TRD billies are too short and at full down travel could over extend the shock and bust it. You would need to add longer travel shocks when you add bigger then 2 inches of lift. I think thats why some people get away with running stock billies with AAL. Right...lol

Nevermind...late :P
