    I bought my tacoma with a 2in lift but the front was lower then the back probably because of the aal. I took it to the shop and they were able to lift the front 2in with the existing lift kit which is an icon kit. Now my truck is more level and looks better but i noticed it takes speed bumps/humps more roughly. Do anyone know why this could be? Is it bad?

    from my experience coilovers are not meant to be a lifting factor,dont raise it more than expected height and thats where you get the rougher ride in time you will cause stress to the internals, in my case thats what happened to mine my coilovers they were shot because they were lifted beyond their max, and i took the previous owners word that they were still good and did not need a rebuild, but how long have the icons been on?

    The higher you crank your coilovers (I'm assuming that's what you have) the rougher the ride will be.
