    2. Is it a good idea to get the Axle shims?
    3. do i need extended shocks? im planning on getting 5100s, but wasnt sure if i needed longer shocks.

    Front.
    1. im getting the 'unassembled kit'.. what should i se it at?
    2. Should i get the Carrier Bearing Drop?
    3. Should i get Differential Drop?

    Were you planning on adding the AAL the same time of the TSB? Really hard to tell which AAL to choose because the TSB lift amount varies with each member, especially if it may or may not settle later. Rear 5100's should be fine up to 2.5" lift.
    You will need the sway bar relocate kit to prevent rubbing with the new springs. Different drop is questionable, depends on who you ask. Here's a thread on it: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/1s...ferential-drop-kit-before-after-pictures.html

    I have the DD on mine w/o issues. I left my Toytecs CO's factory set at 2.5"

    Well I'm about to get my tsb done.. before I lift. What size tires are you running. And any rubbing issues? I will search more on the diff drop when I get home to a computer. And as for the AAL.. I want a slight rake because I tow trailers and haul stuff in the bed so I don't want it looking like it sags... nice truck btw
