    I know I am beating a dead horse with this but I have a question regarding lifts that I cant find in any searches. As with it seems a majority of people on this site I will more then likely be ordering Toytec Coil Overs and AAL with Billy 5100s on all 4s. My question is. The AAL is 2'' if I am correct, with the coilovers and 5100s in the front, I can go the full 3''. From what I understand you can fit 33's (32* - 33* due to manafacturer) with 3 inches with little to no trimming depending on the offset. My real question is, with 2 inches in the back and 3 in the front, is that going to make it nose high? I want it to sit level but I have seen afew that have their noses a little too high. Please, Correct me if im wrong on any of my thought process above.

    Also just to make me feel like I have got all my bases covered, C/Os, AAL, 5100, diff drop, sway bar relocaters and brake lines are all that is needed?

    Thanks ahead of time!

    getting there....
    you have a good setup that you are thinking of. there really is no need with sway bar relocaters for a 3 inch lift(im pretty sure anyway), and upgrading to longer brake lines is your choice....not absolutely necessary, but a great idea. and the truck probably has a small rake now....so with that setup.....you should be pretty close to level all the way around.

    Skip the differential drop. A 1" drop is really only 1/2" due to the pivoting of the front differential on the late model Tacomas. True that every little bit will help your CV boots, but it can cause problems when adding skidplates and stuff later.

    My BudBuilt skids needed to be modified to fit with the drop kit. If I were to do it again I'd have skipped the diff drop altogether.

    Just my $.02, and it's usually better to learn on some else's dime. :)

    your truck stock will sit lower in the front. IIRC, its about 1-1.5 inches lower in the front. having a 3 up front and a 2 in the rear will lift as well as level your truck.
    i just installed a 2.5/1.5 lift on mine and its sits higher and level IMO:D

    hope this helps.
    and anyone feel free to correct me if im wrong on the height difference between front and rear.

    I *think* that you'll need the sway bar relocates with the toytec coilovers.

    If I understand you correctly, you are getting toytec coilovers in the front, you only need 5100's in the rear.

    Not 5100's on all 4 corners.
