    Hi,

    Just installed the all pro 3" leafs. These leafs appear to be a great value for people who don't carry heavy loads.

    When I installed it, I had to remove the shocks so I could put the diff almost on the ground since the leafs have a lot of arch. I initially forgot to disconnect the brake line and while it did not break it was highly stressed.

    Probably a good idea to get an extended brake line but I was wondering since these springs seem to have much more droop is it possible to get a shock that allows more droop w/o moving the mount points or adding a thicker bump stop?

    Currently I have the aftermarket Bilsteins for lifted applications (previously had a 3" AAL). I don't remember the part number but it's the ones that came out shortly after this truck was introduced. As I remember this is as far as you can go w/o changing the shock mount point but thought I'd ask to be sure.

    Thanks


    PS. If you are considering lifting a Tacoma I highly recommend these springs considering what they cost. I originally put an AAL on my truck and it really doesn't make much sense. The Toyota springs are so whimpy and the AAL so stiff that it's a big mismatch and my stock springs finally broke.
