lift question

Just joined the site. Got my son a 98 Tacoma xtra cab and think we're going to add adjuatsble Bilsteins (set at 2.5 in) on the front and a 1.5in blocks on the rear. Will this cause problems with any other components on the truck?
Thanks

Its not the top of the line lift especially with block on the rear but you should be fine other then that. Might need to get an alignment up front after the install though. I'm assuming since its a 98' it doesnt have a current warranty anymore so you dont have to worry about anything like that.

He turns 16 in a few weeks so, not looking to break the bank. He does that enough with motorcross. He just wants it to look a little better. Always open to suggestions, just trying to stay simple and stay affordable.

You may be better off with a aal in the rear instead of the block.

x2 on the AAL. since it's a 98 Im going to assume that the leaf pack is sagging. If you add a block to that, it'll wear the pack even more.

If he doesnt wheel the AAL too much, it's an easy way to lift the back

Like the others say an AAL would be the better choice in the long run. He does motocrross huh, sounds like we would get along just fine!!

Thanks for the replies. I think we'll look into the AAL's. I take it from the comments that the Bilsteins are a good choice for the 2.5 on the front. I've been browsing on Wheelers off road, any other suggestions on suppliers?

I guess I should add to the post. The reason I decided on 2.5" in front and 1.5" on the rear was I read somewhere that 3" or more lift could cause some mechanical issues up front with CV joints etc... Should I stick with original plan or is 3" okay with no issues to consider?
Thanks again.

I found something on fabtech stating not to lift over 2" with auto-hubs. Will 2.5 inches on front cause him problems with ball joints/cv joints??
