You should be ok, but your rears will only have about 1" of downward travel. You will notice a jarring sensation as the shock tops out when the suspension drops over bumps. Shocks alone do not affect the ride height of the truck.

There is a lift install price thread here: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...ce-thread.html

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
