    I have a 2001 Tacoma double cab, and Im going to put 3'' spacers on the front and 2" shackles on the back. Also 33"x12.5 BFGoodrich A/T. Now here is what i have heard but just want to be clear on it. Im going to need longer rear break lines, longer shocks, and a differential drop. If all this is true where can i get all this, and is there anything else i need? Thanks for the help! -Dan:)

    Diff drop probably won't save your cv's, but can't hurt. longer shocks are a must, I think your brake lines will be fine at that height.

    you probably wont need extended brake lines but it wouldnt hurt,at 2'' in the rear your brake lines will probably just max out at the same time your suspension does. you will definitly need longer shocks. your not going to necessarily need a diff drop but itll certainly help your CV angles. personally i would go with one.

    Are you dead set on getting the 3'' spacer lift and shackles? if so at least go with a reputable brand. There are much better lifts out there for not to much more money. judging by the size of the tires you want to run you probly plan on playin in the woods a bit eh.

    do you have some aftermarket wheels or wheel spacers on your truck? if you dont you are going to have some serious rubbing going on(UCA,frame,bumper) with that size tire.

    If you are planning on getting shocks, then don't waste the money on a spacer lift. Get a set of Bilstein 5100s. The fronts will provide 2.5" of lift, and then match it out back with an aal set.

    the spacers i was looking at were by toytec. Im not 100% set on the spacers i just feel like there is a lot more room for me to screw up a complete lift. I am pretty set on the 33's so if there is going to be a lot of rubbing i guess ill have to reconsider. what would you recommended me doing?

    i take it you have 15'' wheels since you want to go with 33/12.5 eh? youd be able to fit a 32/11.5 in the bfg AT much easier and would look better i think.

    youd be able to even with the spacer lift but the real problem is your wheels not providing enough backspacing to clear you of rubbing

    We can add a small top spacer to the 5100s for the full 3" of lift up front. Full 33" tire does require trimming though.

    Im looking at new rims to go with the 33x12.5's. they are 15" rims and have 4'' of backspacing. that will be enough spacing to reduce the rubbing right?

    ^it should be,what is the backspacing on your OEM wheels. i know on the 16's it is 4.5 but not sure on what it is for the 15's.
