    Ok so I have an 03 tacoma trd 4x4 v6, I got the fox/fabtech coilovers for the front. I have them set to level right now but I wanna lift them 2.5 inches or 3 inches whatever they go to and I was going to get blocks for the rear to lift it. so here are my questions.

    1) what size blocks should I get for the rear to be level? 1 inch? 1.5 inch? 2 inch?

    2) would I need to get longer rear shocks if I get a 1 or 1.5inch blocks?

    thanks people.

    Blocks WILL lift your truck but I'd opt for AAL - personal experience I had blocks and then went to the AAL and have been pretty happy with the set up and now I am going to new OME leaf packs since the stock springs are finally shot.
    Yes, you should get longer shocks otherwise you can grenade (ruin) them when your rear end flexes.
    Just installed a BDS AAL on a friends truck and it only took a few hours to do, pretty easy - I think he got the 2" AAL. There were no instructions, but I had done the AAL before.
    Hope this helps.
