    Hey guys I have. 97 tacoma in need of new struts and bushing for the sway bar etc. I also want to give her a nice 3 inch lift. Do they make longer struts and springs instead of just blocking them? Any suggestions for a decently cheap setup since I want to throw 31s on there as well once my tires wear down a hair more.

    Haha. Thanks I'll take a look into them both. The only thing is I'd need rear spacers but it says the rears only accommodate 0-1" of lift ? Does that mean I could only add a one inch lift in the rear? Or it provides 1 inch. Kind of seems funky that the fronts max at 2.5 And the rears provide nothing?

    Rear shocks dont provide any lift. The rear leaf springs do that. So if you wanted to lift the rear you would need an AAL (add a leaf) or a new leaf pack.

    2 in AAL. Body lifts unless around 1 inch or smaller are nothing but trouble
