Do I need any other parts for my lift??

So i got wheeler's 5 leaf pack, bilstein 5100s front and rear, bpv relocate, extended brake line, and strut stem washer kit.
i have a 97 excab and the front struts i got have only 3 notches (0, 1.25, 2.5) im going to reuse the stock coils and set it on 1.25. what else do i need? I want to make sure i have everything before i start installing thanks.
Should i get new bushings for the leafs and new u-bolts?
Also will this be level do you guys think? or should i do the top notch? (2.5)

Get new bushings for everything you can, might as well since you are in there.
Get the OME coils instead of your tired toyota ones and set the billys at 1.25 for an even lift and a far better ride.

If you use the old stock coils you need to use the 2.5 setting for an even lift.

You are adding a larger leaf pack so a longer ubolt kit is mandatory.

880's with a diff drop kit are the way to go, since you have the little motor do it on the stock height setting with the ome or 1.25 setting with stock coils.

The bushing kits can be found on http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/9504tacoma.htm
