    Don't need axles or brake lines. You may need to get a diff drop kit to help with CV angles. Check with toyteclifts.com. You may or may not need a shim or carrier bearing drop to get the rear drive line angles fixed and prevent vibes. You may also need UCAs to get your alignment perfect, but it seems to be hit or miss on this.

    1st you should read this:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/40469-lifting-you-truck-things-you-need-know.html

    then you should know about this:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/69937-3-rough-country-lift-help.html#post1321026

    You shouldn't buy a cheap lift to use on your truck. Invest in a good lift such as bilstein 5100s on all 4 corners, aals, and some new upper control arms. there's some other stuff, but if you search around, you'll find what you're looking for.
