front=5"-6" rear=??? how do i get my rear to match my front height. 2x4

well im gonna be lifting my 08' 2gen taco soon. already got some parts coming in (:
got the maxtrac 4" spindles & wanted to combine them with some 1500 w/ eibach coils (1.6") putting me right around 5.5 inches of height up front.. maybe will go up more if i preset the 1500 at .85 putting me almost at 6.5 inches o.0

my question is how do i get my rear to match 5 - 6 inches??

originally my plan was to go with (3") Allpro expo leaf packs with the stock 1" rake putting me at 4" which isnt 2 bad. but i would prefer to be at 5.5" in the rear.. what can i do ?

i heard about a shackle flip that might help but not entirely sure yet..

Extended shackles maybe? Defined Engineering makes some pretty sweet ones.

alcan seems like it might get pretty pricy :/
plus just checked out the forum needed to fill & i dont know half of the stuff it asks 4

maybe it just will be cheaper & easier to keep it at 4 and call it a day...

does anyone know how many leafs in stock leaf pack?
or the size of factory spare

Check out this build, he is running a similar setup to what you are getting.
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...uas-build.html

OME 883=1.5''
Elbach =1.6''

I have 5100@0 and 883 and the ride is very smooth

thanks for ur 2 cents, smooth ride is important for me
i read that 5100 with ome is a bad combination

5100 with ebiach was better. something about the 1500 not dampening the coil well enough? but maybe since there 883 there not that stiff
