    If I put the Icon shocks (the 2.0 standard rear shocks for Tacomas) with the Expo leafs...am I limiting the leafs?

    I thought about putting the BAMF relocation kit with longer shocks?

    Suggestions please.

    Actually scratch that I'm not going with the relocation. Just stock mounting points.

    I was told that these would not work on the all pro expo can some one tell me what size shocks I would need to work with the all pro expos. All pro claims that they'll give you 4" lift with a empty bed is that true too?

    Magnaflow, Fox RR/ Camburg UCA up front, Bilsten 5100 and some kind of AAL/ leaf pack in the back?, Light bar w/ Hella, and an air freshener
    It will/ should state the lift height capabilities of the shocks in their description on the website

    DSM Does have the description and the compression and extended length but I need to know what size shock will fit with the leaf pack I read somewhere that I need a 27" shock I don't want to just go by what a read a while back maybe some one else to second that statement.

    The Expedition Leaf springs unloaded sit right about 4" of lift. The Shocks that are normally run with our expo leafs are 9 1/4"-9 5/8"s of travel.
