    So I have a 2012 DCSB Tacoma TRD OR. And as of now I have a 3" Rough Country Lift, its nice but soon it will need replacing.

    I want to put the 2" Iornman Leaf Springs on to replace the 2" Rear Block I have now. The Rough Country kit came with extend u bolts and longer rear shocks, the rough country shocks that come with it seem to be nice do what I need the to do. So could I use the Rough Country rear shocks and the Iorn Man rear leaf pack with no problems?

    Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    I don't think you should have any problems if the shocks has not been bottoming out and seems to ride ok with 2'' of lift.

    I am not an expert on rear lifts though, I don't know if blocks change the geometry of the suspension vs what a leaf pack would do.

    Most likely those shocks will work just fine since they are longer for the lifted application. Possible, but unlikely that they would be too long. I don't know much about the Ironman springs, but they do seem to be very similar to the OME Dakars, which I do carry.

    Awesome thank you. On the website it says the shock are for a 2"/3" lift. It also came with u bolts. Would one of your 2" aal's work? That would save me good money also! Thanks
