    Hey all looking for a little input. I have a 08 regular cab 2.7L 4x4 I currently have a 3 inch tough country lift. I installed the lift shortly after i bought the truck not knowing much about toyota suspension. I'm sick of how my tuck handles off road, especially the rear axle wrap. Im going to upgrade to the 3 inch OME kit. My question is my current kit has the two front diff spacers, do i need to keep these spacers on my truck with the OME coils and struts or can i return the truck to the way it was stock to gain a little more clearance? Thanks
