updated the first post.

the 1.5" bearing/misalignment spacers are for the lower shock mount ONLY. The Tacoma stock lower control arm lower shock mount spacing between the two tabs is 1.5"

The TOP plate adapter is most likely 1.25" spacing, which is the most common misalignment spacer on most shocks. CONFIRM this with the company you are buying the top plate spacers from first BEFORE buying the misalignment spacers for the top shock mount.

I'm pretty interested in running a set up just like this, but I have a couple of questions if someone is willing to help solidify my decision:

Does this set up still provide the lift that an Extended Travel Coil Over (Icon, King, Etc.) does?

Is there a predefined valving spec that the shock should run or is the normal valving straight from king nice? Or is it a matter of personal preference?

Do Engage, Camburg, or TC still offer the Coil Bucket Adapters for this application?

Does the suspension still bottom out on the Bumps or does it bottom on the shock?

Edit: or are there different adapters to make it work
