At 3" you will be at the farthest limit of the coilover assuming they are the extended travel units. You will have very little droop travel, and when your shocks top out it will feel like your front end is going to rip apart. Other than that, it will ride the same as 1" lift.

I would crank those down a lot. Measure your starting height then add preload as needed to reach your 3 inch goal. Also do you have top plates for the coilovers?

I was told by DSM to have them in a spring compressor in order to adjust them. I am in the same boat with not knowing how much preload to put on my used set that I just picked up and rebuilt...

Are you running a bumper or winch?

I adjusted mine on the truck using the spammer wrench and cheater pipe it's actually fairly easy. With so much preload already on the coilovers your probably gonna have a hell of a time getting them on too

Speaking to Icon you can adjust these on the truck and you do not need a spring compressor.

But those are NOT gonna fit a 2nd Gen Tacoma. If you are going to keep those shocks (and I don't know if you can just put a top plate on those and make them work) you are going to need to get the 2 piece spacers for the bottom

And yes you need to lower those.

Yes those will work for second gens he just needs the top plate. I sent one of mine to icon to get it fixed before I put them on my truck. But you are right about needing the spacers that go on the bottom of the coilover...

At the bottom of the coilovers where the LCA bolt goes through there are little spacers that go on each side to keep it lined up. When u order the top plates just tell them you need a pair.

Great Shocks

I have the Icon Extended travel with resis and I love them. They're a huge improvement in ride comfort and performance. Mine are cranked up pretty well but based on measurements front of frame and back they're adjusted where I want them. I would say I have almost a full three inches of lift. It's also going to depend on your personal preference and existing armor gear and use for your truck. Overall I'd def make the purchase again. Best of luck
