    Does any one know if I could put a 3" spacer with an AAL lift in my tacoma and then put 3" bigger coils with 3" shackles without putting a drop bracket in for the front pumpkin? I am also wondering about the A arms and if they would have to be extended?

    3" spacer with 3" coils would ride slightly worse than if you were to weld you front suspension soild. You would destroy your ball joints, and Cv's. If your looking for a 6" lift, than go with a dedicated drop bracket 6" lift. "Stacking" lifts is a horrible idea. For the rear, you CAN add 3" shackels, but keep in mind, they are 6" long. Better off getting a new leaf pack.

    With 3" coils & 3" spacer (assuming it's mounted inside the coil assembly) will never work. The mounting location on the strut tube will break. They're not built to handle that much pressure. I've seen it happen with only 2.5" coils and a 1" spacer.

    If you want 6" lift - buy a 6" lift kit.
