    i am going to buy a 3" TOYOTEC lift, and they offer rear blocks or add a leafs. my question to all of you is what do you think is better and a smoother ride... and the best quality... i am looking for quality and performance.

    thanks for the help.

    AALs are better than blocks by far, it'll give you a bit stiffer ride, but not too much. Blocks will give you axle wrap, not good.

    edit: the best quality would be to get new coilover shocks with new leaf packs that give you a lift.

    Mods so far: Tube steps from toyota, Bed extender from toyota, Spare Tire lock, Sound System Makeover, Tacoma All-Weather heavy duty rubber floor mats. Rear TSB, Icon Coilovers w/ TC UCA's and 3inch rear block with rear 5100 bilstein shocks, Black Headlights, Grillcraft black grill, Devil Horns from Andres, Black Headlights, Chrome Liquid Metal Gatlins Wheels, 285/70R17 Nitto Tera Grapplers, Wet Okole Seat Covers! Seat Belt Chime Mod, Flowmaster 50 series dual exhaust, Debadged tailgate, TRD Decals, HID hi/low + fogs.
    Just a heads up... I am getting the TSB done for the rear suspension because they basically add a leaf for you for free. Then I am getting 1 inch block in the lift kit I just bought.

    Blocks are really bad especially if you go offroad.

    I've seen atleast 3 blocks fly out of a vehicle because they broke in half while the axle was under torque. One paticular situation.... if the airborne piece was 3" higher, it would've castrated a guy.

    Unfortunatley I had the TSB done and at the time Toytec didn't have an AAL for that application. I haven't had any problems, on or off road.

    However when the time comes I will be going for some AAL's. My $.02
