    Hi all! I just installed new leaf springs (Triangle Springs), added Toytec AAL's and Toytec Shackles with a 1" lift on my 96 Tacoma Xtracab. Is this bad? I forgot to measure the height before i started but after I finished it looks closer to 4 inches of lift rather than 3. Has anyone else done something close to this?

    Also, it looks like I'll have to replace the brake line with a longer one. Is there anything else I should be concerned about?

    with the rear, grabbing a new brake proportioning valve cant hurt either.

    the AAL will settle with time closer to 3"

    Oh, yes! I installed a brake proportioning valve bracket as well.
