    I installed 2.75" spacers on the front and 3" shackles in the rear. My tacoma is now saggin' in the rear and I was wondering what I can do to lift the rear to get my truck level. I thought about just taking the spacers off, but I'm not sure yet..

    One thing to consider would be remove the spacers and install Bilstein 5100's in the front. They're adjustable up to 2-1/2".

    Doesn't look like the shackles did anything for you.

    3" shackles are only giving you 1.5 inches of lift. You need a 1.5 inch aal or maybe 2".
    Check out toytec.com or any of the other fine vendors on this site listed to the left of the page.
