So I just bought a 3" toytec lift kit with the 2" aal and 5160 bilstein shocks:
I am fairly mechanically inclined and the install seems like it would be pretty straight forward... so I am thinking about doing it myself. But to be honest, I haven't a clue as to what I am getting myself into.
I have a 2005 Tacoma, 4 door, DC, Long bed, Prerunner SR5 (non TRD).
It currently has a non-TSB 3 leaf pack and 2" front spacers and a 1.5" rear leveling block. The rear shocks are completely blown and bottom out on everything, and I mean everything (hence the purchase). I usually drive this about every other day or so to work and around town, but I usually take this out on bumpy fire roads every other weekend with about 200-300 lbs of potential cargo in the back. Stock front bumper but I do have a brush gaurd up there.
Sorry if these questions sound dumb or if they've been asked before, I've been lurking for a couple weeks and I couldn't exactly find what I've been looking for.
Is it a common thing to install the coilovers on the 2" spacer that's currently on it? Would this extra height damage anything or possibly limit my travel?
Also, is it common to use the 1.5" rear level block with the 2" AALs? And can I use this with the 5160s?
