    I think once I get a Tacoma I've decided on the OME setup with 2" AAL in the rear and new LR upper control arms. I would like to get closer to 3" but also want to correct the "taco lean" so I thought about stacking two trim packers. Is this safely, doable?

    I would do two on the driver's side and then 1 on the passenger side to still gain some lift over there. Two of the 5mm packers would be less than 1/2"(12.7mm) so I don't see any difference between the 1/4" or 1/2" optional spacer.

    In that case , I would suggest using the OME trim packer on the driver's side shock , it mounts below the coil seat , and then put a 1/4" top plate spacer on both the driver and passenger side .

    OZ-T I just had a OME lift installed with the 885s and 90000 shocks with the Maxtrack spindles in front, and N182s in the rear to include the Allpro Expo leaf pack. It was installed two weeks ago. I am sitting at 26" in the rear and 27" on the passanger in front and 26 1/4" on the driver side front. Should I waite to let it settle more or what would you suggest to correct the driver side. The trim spacer was not used and the top plate 1/2" spacers were not used either. I would like to stay at 27" in the front and bring the rear up to 27" and even it out. What is your advice. Thank's

    I would say , 1/4" top plate spacer , driver's side , that way you wouldn't have to disassemble the coil / shock
