    I am looking at an OME complete kit

    http://store.arbusa.com/2-Inch-05tacoma-Stock-Kit-P21031.aspx

    I am not going to do the added spacer for a full three inches. A couple questions, when I price this kit at 4wheelparts, they list a drive shaft spacer. What is this and is it a needed part for a 2 inch lift?

    My biggest question is should I get the heavy duty or light duty shocks? I pull a 7x12 enclosed trailer 1-5 times a year but i may pull it cross country a couple of those times. Should I get the heavy duty shocks or stay light duty. FWIW i dont do any major off roading, but may get into it a little more.

    I did a lot of searching, but could not find much on the heavy duty shock option.

    When I talked to Toytec, they recommended the ULK with added Dakars leafs

    The " driveshaft drop" is a CB drop , or carrier bearing drop , this is intended to correct the angle of the driveshaft after you alter the geometry by installing the lift.

    The heavy duty coils are the 886 , they are intended to be used if you add an aftermarket steel bumper ( +/- 100 lbs ) and a winch . If you do not intend on adding that much weight to the front , you will be fine with the 885 springs .

    I am about to install the very same lift ( 885's and Dakars )

    Thanks OZ. I had planned on the 885s, I think the 4wheel parts site had me confused stating heavy duty gas shocks instead of coils.
