some questions about lifting my taco?

Ok so I have no idea what I am doing with this, I have done a lot of research on lifts kits (brand blocks, things like that but I donít know how to mix and match) that being said I am just going to through all this out there and I was hoping you guys could help guide me in the right direction.

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypag e.tpl&product_id=58696&category_id=63&option=com_v irtuemart&Itemid=72

that lift with the diff drop because I have a 4x4. then (look down)

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypag e.tpl&product_id=58712&category_id=63&option=com_v irtuemart&Itemid=72

I would add those also to the rear. Is that possible? Now I would have a 3 inch total lift in the back (2 inch from the aal and 1 inch from those) right? Then (look down)

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypag e.tpl&product_id=58700&category_id=63&option=com_v irtuemart&Itemid=72

I would add those this should give me a 4 inch front lift and 3 inch rear lift (just the ďbest sellerĒ lift kit would give me 3 inches in the front and 2 inches in the rear)

I know I donít want to use blocks in the rear. I might add in 881 ome coils if I got the money left over, but for the sake of this post lets pretend I am not planning on it.

would all that work together?

you first link is the same as your third link your not going to be able to put two spacers like that together. You can get larger spacer to get the disired hight

well bein gyour 4x4 you cant go over a 3" lift in the front, bc it will destroy your cv's in the long run. Even with a diff. drop.

I did the AAL and 1" block in the rear for 3" lift. But for the front a wouldnt go with spacers if you do any off roading. I had spacer's and they sucked super bad. Rode like shit. I would go with the OME coil lift or coilovers.

ok thanks guys. the problem is i cant find spacers bigger than 3 inches i think i will go with 881 coils. i also totally forgot about the cv joints so i will just stick with 3 a 3 inch spacer. for the rear, can i do the shackle and the aal together.

I also dont want blocks at all i have heard nothing but horrible things form block owners.

yeah, your ganna regret doing spacers up front man! the OME coil lift with new shocks will be a way better ride.

The rear will be ok with AAL+1" shackles.

well i was planning on the spacer and 881 OME coils, but where could i get the new shocks? i dont have 1000 dollars to spend on the suspension lift, if i did i would have gone with a 6 inch lift.

Toytec has them.

These are the shocks you want for the 881's and top plate spacer. It will give a great ride. And I dont know if you know, But you will need longer rear shocks as well... I reccomend the Bilstein 5100's or the OME's. Hope this helps ya!

It will probably be cheaper to get this kit and then just add the 1" shackles.
