    My buddy has a 96 tacoma and it has a 3" suspension lift and a 2" body. But he just got new procomp leaf springs, that provide a 3.5" lift. And it has a over load spring. So my question is can we just take out the overload leaf to get the lift around 3" not 3.5"? Or is it not a good idea to do that?
    Thanks!

    I don't think it's a good idea to take out your over load spring...I may be wrong though. Someone will chime in here.

    nothing, all stock expect got a OE replacement air filter K&N.
    when i had my stock shackles removed, i couldn't take it off without spraying some pb blaster or wd40 to make it easier. it can be a pain in the butt too if its rusting.
