Question 00' 2.7l Taco Suspension, tires, and wheels

00' 2.7l Taco Suspension, tires, and wheels
I am installing 2" lifted leaf springs in the 00" 2.7l Taco and was hoping to get 33"/12.50-15 on 15/8" wheels with little to no other modifications. Am I dreamin'? Can anyone foresee any difficulties or other considerations? Besides fender flares, will I have to trim the fenders? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What are you doing for the front? Do you mean you're going to put AAL's in the rear or new leaf packs?

Thanks for the response. The front is not being lifted, yet I am adding new coil-overs with progressive rate coils and replacement struts. NWOR, the company I got the parts from say that the 2" lift in rear will not significantly alter the front end geometry. I've done some measuring a and it appears that the tires will fit in the front, although I'm not sure if they will rub on turns. The rear may need some fender trim. First time doing this myself so I am just trying to cover my bases, and get 2nd opinions.

I'm guessing the front will rub on the fender/mud flaps or even the swaybar (?) on a full turn, while the rears will probably be OK.
