Need help identifying lift

I picked up this 2007 Tacoma a couple weeks ago. I've added some wheels and tires. However the lift was already on there when I purchased it. It looks to me like the Pro Comp 3" lift.

My pics:









It kinda looks like this one:



I'm wanting to change it. It's not really level and the ride is harsh. I feel every bump on the road. Maybe it's the shocks that are so stiff, not sure.

Here is how my truck sits:



Not bad, but I would like to level it out more.

Would replacing the coilovers with the bilstein setup from toytec level it out and provide softer ride?

Getting rid of the blocks in the back would be a great start to a smoother ride....

That is a GOOD looking truck, It looks like you guessed right, is that rear shock supposed to be angled like it is??? Doesn't look right.

My guess is that the shock is straight. The boot is just cock-eyed. OP, I would take a picture of the entire rear shock though. You don't wanna be rolling around on it if it actually is bent.

I may be missing something but I do not see any lift blocks in the rear? Could you tell me what you're referring to?

Just looks like leaf springs on the perch.

Shock boot is just tilted. It's straight.

I see no blocks as well... AAL doesn't help, and neither do the Pro-Comp shocks. Not known for being smooth that's for sure

That's what I've gathered from researching on the site. I'm probably just going to replace the whole setup then, entire coilovers, leaf, shocks. Maybe add UCA's. Guessing that should improve the ride.
