    nah, just the alignment will be fine. the only correction that was needed when i had my alignment done was for "toe". everything else was spot on.

    i installed them myself but i have access to a proper spring/strut compressor at my work. overall it's an easy install. so far the 2.5" lift has been decent but you know, always wanting to go more. soon though i'll be getting coilovers to accommodate a front bumper and winch. as for you saying maybe something more then a 2.5" lift...well, thats all suggestive to what your wants and needs are for your Taco. plenty of options out there that works well, just be sure to research everything out before you make the final decision before pulling the trigger.

    it would be very hard to really see the difference in only a .5 inch of lift... side by side maybe but not just sitting alone

    right but i want to fit 33's without trimming and that would give the truck another inch
