    HEY whats up i just got a 6 inch fabtech lift used on the cheap for my 2000 taco.... anyway its just the front portion i have installed of the kit and all he gave me for the rear is 3 inch blocks(no Ubolts or shocks)...... what would be the best way to lift the rear with around a 400-500 dollar budget and where can i order this from. thanks to everyone.

    everone says the rear is the easy part but i cant find a single product that i can buy to match a 6 inch lift?

    Also the front impact struts are like 2 inch to short what did i screw up on?

    i would contact fabtech see if that can hook you up with just the rear options. if you wanted to keep the blocks (i would not) you could just get a 2inch AAl and new shocks and be good to go.

    EDIT: and the u-bolts

    I could be wrong but I would think you would need more than just add to the leafs because the stock shocks only have about 4'' of downtravel.
