    I have a set of sway away 3" coilovers for my 08 tacoma and am thinking I am going to buy a 3" leaf package for the rear. My question is will the rear sit alot higher than the front?

    You want 1 to 2" of rake. 3" leaf pack with 3" coilovers should be around 2" of rake.

    I was hoping to that it would level out but I was not sure because of the way the tacoma sits stock.

    Level will sag in the ass if you put a load in the bed.

    Once again, strongly recommend some rake.

    Should I think about doing a 4" spindle lift in the front to off set the rear? I already have the SAW coils for the front but I don't want my truck to look and ride like s#$t!

    How much are 5" spindles and where do I find them for a 08 Tacoma. Should I get rid of the Saws and stick with stock front coils or will the saws still be better with spindles? Can I even put spindles on a 4x4?

    Spindles don't work on 4x4 trucks. They're 2wd only.

    Get the 3" pack in the rear. It'll sit fine.

    For reference, this was my truck when I had W/E shocks up front and the AP 3" packs in the rear:

    I have OME that are 2.75 and my truck sits fine. I'm also not as high in the front because I'm not running coilovers (OME)

    i think itll sit too high in the rear. i have a 2.5" aal, and its too high for my taste. dont really need too much rake, cause the only things that get thrown in the bed are surfboards, snowboards, camping gear, and turnouts. nothing too heavy
