    well im gonna be lifting my 08' 2gen taco soon. already got some parts coming in :)
    got the maxtrac 4" spindles & wanted to combine them with some 1500 w/ eibach coils (1.6") putting me right around 5.5 inches of height up front.. maybe will go up more if i preset the 1500 at .85 putting me almost at 6.5 inches o.0

    my question is how do i get my rear to match 5 - 6 inches??

    originally my plan was to go with (3") Allpro expo leaf packs with the stock 1" rake putting me at 4" which isnt 2 bad. but i would prefer to be at 5.5" in the rear.. what can i do ?

    i heard about a shackle flip that might help but not entirely sure yet..

    Too many to list now.
    Extended shackles maybe? Defined Engineering makes some pretty sweet ones.

    alcan seems like it might get pretty pricy :/
    plus just checked out the forum needed to fill & i dont know half of the stuff it asks 4

    maybe it just will be cheaper & easier to keep it at 4 and call it a day...

    does anyone know how many leafs in stock leaf pack?
    or the size of factory spare

    thanks for ur 2 cents, smooth ride is important for me
    i read that 5100 with ome is a bad combination

    5100 with ebiach was better. something about the 1500 not dampening the coil well enough? but maybe since there 883 there not that stiff
