    hey taco lovers.. so i have an 07 tacoma w/ a 6" fabtech lift and the rear sits lower then the front end.. some people like this "baja" look but i want my truck to sit level from front to back. the rear isnt that much lower then the front of the truck, id say the rear could come up about 1 inch or so. I heard of AAL and deaver packs etc. i dont want to mess with those i hear they raise the back by about 1.5 inches at least. i was thinking maybe of using a 1 inch block from ready lift or toytec but i already have a block on the springs in place which came with the fabtech lift.. what do i do???
    :eek:

    I wouldn't add more block, I think Toytec or somebody sells a 1" AAL. Probably the next best step. You could go with a whole new leaf pack but then who knows how much higher it will sit.

    I have the Fabtech Basic too with that POS block. I'm ordering a set of rear leafs from ALCAN to alleviate those horrible blocks. Charles at ALCAN told me $250 a leaf and they are built to your specs. Man I sound like a salesman, I will post impression when I get mine installed. Hopefully it will help with the "Taco lean" too!

    If you want a plusher ride get some custom leaf packs like Chachie did.
