    Can someone direct me in the way to buy rear shackles for a 98 Tacoma 4wd I've looked everywhere I'm looking for a 3 in but I don't think they make me so it seems I need a 2in + 1in to get the height that I want
    -thanks-

    You don't stack them together. You use their kit. One on each side. No they don't look funny. I have 6" longer over stock.

    im looking and it doesnt say anything bout a kit the first two are stock height, then the 1in then 2in. the next two pic are the daystar 1.25in shackle set and greaseable main spring set and those are just bushings. so if im trying to get 3in out of it I would need the 2in and 1in put together? srry im new to trucks and dont want to get the wrong one or anything extra that I didnt know about

    Just get an AAL and a 1" shackle lift then. Shackles cannot be combined haha. I thought you wanted 2" lift, I didn't read it fully that's why I was so confused.
