    So I'm getting myself a lift for Christmas and have chosen the below option. What I'm asking is people with experience, in your opinion are there any other odds and ends that I'm over looking that I should get to go with this lift?

    extended front and back brake lines.

    Front Swaybar Relocate Kit for 07-09 FJ, 05 & UP Tacoma & 03-09 4Run

    Front Top Plate Spacer (One - 1/4") x2

    3" lift kit with Bilstein 5100 Height Adj. Coilovers
    View/Hide options
    Rear lift options: CS047R Daker complete leaf springs
    Front diff drop kit: Add (4x4)
    Rear shock options: 5160 Rear Reservoir shocks

    Make sure they send you U-Bolts.

    What springs are going onto the Bilstein 5100's? And they are not coilovers, they are just struts.

    If you're ordering from Toytec, make sure the rear shocks are long enough for the new springs.

    Front brake lines?
    Diff drop on an 05+?
    Top plate spacer with a 5100 lift?
    Sway bar reloaction kit with stock springs?

    You dont need any of these.

    Perhaps a carrier bearing drop for the rear would be more useful.

    Looks like you are going for a full 3" lift, in which case you will want new upper control arms, otherwise you won't have enough caster.

    Diff drop does more harm than good. Do the boot slide mod instead.

    Below is everything it comes with and I want to upgrade to the Dakers in the back with the 5160 shocks.

    The top front spacers are in case it doesn't sit completely level, I've seen a lot of trucks on here with a 3 inch lift and have a little rake to them, and I want it as level as possible. they aren't expensive and if its level without I won't use them.

    Complete 3" lift kit for 2005 & UP Tacoma with Bilstein 5100 Height Adjustable front shocks

    INCLUDES:

    Bilstein 5100 height adjustable front shocks

    Toytec/Eibach 112620 front coils

    Fully assembled with Toytec Aluminum top mount and Urethane bushings

    Preset at 3" Lift (Lift heights may vary depending on how much front weight you have installed on your vehicle)

    Rear options: select one below

    -----TAC-AL - ToyTec Rear "long" add-a-leafs featuring anti friction pads for quiet ride

    -----TAC-AL-TSB for Tsb & 4 leaf Toyota springs

    -----BK-15 1 1/2" rear block kit

    -----CS047R Complete OME Dakar springs include bushings and additional shipping to the 48 states, Alaska and Hawaii will have additional shipping due; we will contact you with the additional amount due. price is for set of 2

    Also includes:

    -----Extended length Bilstein 5100 rear nitrogen gas shocks for optimum performance on and off road

    -----TT-RS - rear axle degree shims for proper pinion angle alignment

    -----UB-4 - (4) new rear ubolts

    ** SOME Tacoma models with a total of 4 leafs (3 main leafs, 1 overload) in the rear leaf pack require our TSB AAL- Part # TAC-AL-TSB. Please count how many leafs you have before ordering **

    **Not recommended for reg cab Tacoma without additional front weight

    Carrier bearing drop. Make sure you get the additional bushings needed for the rear eyes of the Dakar springs.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but it's where you loosen the clamp furthest from wheel on the CV boot and slide it toward the engine to keep the fins from bunching up and rubbing on itself and wearing out. Of course that issue only occurs with a lift.

    I took out my diff drop for my skids. I also got a long Ubolt flip kit.
