    i have an '09 tacoma TRD with a (excuse the technical talk if i "F" this up) front coil spacers and a rear add-a-leaf. ride is harsh and my alignment is off. I'm wanting to correct this.

    TRD model comes standard with Bilsteins but with the spacer i have reduced travel (correct?). i'm thinking i should go: front coilovers (this includes shock and spring correct?) and UCA (total chaos - to correct alignment problems). will also replace rear shock and springs too - just not sure with what. will be following up with Toytec and local lift shop. just wanna follow up with the good people on the forum first.

    ...new shocks and springs all around with UCAs - right way to go for 3 inches? Bilstein 5100 and 885 coils or coilover kit. is there a coilover kit for rear?

    appreciate helpful comments.

    Sounds good. Billy 5100 seems to be the most common lift around here.
    No coilover kit for the rear. Just leaf springs. You can go with an add a leaf (AAL) or a whole new leaf pack. New leaf pack should last longer too. an AAL will sag eventually.
