    I ordered a 3 inch spacer lift with 1 inch rear blocks (http://fatbobsgarage.com/i-6765338-...it-w-rear-blocks-4wd-2wd-1996-2004-6-lug.html) for my 99 Tacoma Prerunner from Fat Bob's Garage and the spacers don't look like they will give 3 inches of lift. The rear blocks look like the correct thing but idk about the spacers. Maybe I'm wrong so if anyone could help I would appreciate it. Here are some pictures of it.

    Yes, that's right, the spacer compresses the strut which gives your the 3ish inches of lift.

    Thanks alot man. Good to know that its the right one. Also thanks for the quick reply. Fat Bob's did some A+ packaging by the way and I was really impressed. It wasn't all just thrown in the box like I expected.

    They are correct.

    Front 1.5" block = 3" lift

    You need to remember that this block on top of the coil assembly is pushing the inside (closer to the pivoting bolt) of the LCA down. The outer tip of the LCA is being pushed own proportionately farther, because it is rotating around the pivoting bolt.

    Think of a door in your house. Push it close to the hinge just a little bit, and the outer edge of the door (with the door knob) moves farther.
