    I have a 97 Tacoma V6 ExtraCab. I purchased it with a lift already on it. The front have a 1 5/8" spacer sitting on top of the spring (I don't know if this is stock??) and the back has a 3" block between the axle and the leaf spring.

    I've called a few places and so far no luck finding shocks/struts (front and rear) to fit this.

    Can anyone give me a hand with this?

    Welcome to TW from Ferntucky, NV
    Pics of shock & spacer?
    It sounds like it's just stock with a spacer lift.

    Are you just wanting new replacement shocks but keep the blocks and spacer lift?

    Looks like a good time to ditch the spacers and blocks and upgrade to a better setup with new shocks.
