Question lift question!

so my lift came in the mail today, its the 2.5front 1.5 rear rough country lift

can someone explain how the spacer is only 1.5 inches max.. and how it lifts the front 2.5?!
i want to be familiar with my truck : ] ive only worked on my 66 mustang, and they are quite different.

also what are the biggest tires i could run? i was hoping to get 285/75R16
would these fit on a stock rim with the lift?

its a 2002 Tacoma Prerunner
thanks!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Being as the shock/spring assembly is 1/2 way between the "A" arm pivot point, and the spindle, a 1.5" spacer will yeild a 3" lift. In the rear, the axel is solid, so a 1" lift via block or spring, will give 1" lift.

A 285/75/16 on the stock wheels will rub the bejeezus out of the Upper Control Arm. Best bet is getting replacement Upper Control Arms, Different wheels with a different off set, or a wheel spacer.
