I have ordered AOR springs to copy the Rancho 44044 2.5 inch lift for the front and am wondering if anyone knows what size lift spring I will need for the rear for a Tacoma. Thanks for any info anyone might be able to give me...Thanx

i run the 63" chevy springs with an add a leaf and a little longer shackle in the rear and the truck sits level. im not sure how long the shackles actually are but i can get some measurments if needed. i run the 44044's up front.

i am with zac. get a set of FROR's chevy mounting brackets, make an 8" shackle, and you will sit level with your rancho waggys. mine sits perfect at that level.

We use a rear spring with 2" more lift in the rear to make the truck sit level. For your 2.5" lift, a 4.5 to 5" lift would sit fine. With the hangers, and shackles being mounted under the frame, you get about 2" of lift on the front. This has worked great for us in the past, with many customers using out springs for their SAS Tacos, AJ @ Bent Up, Grumpy, and a few others have had their trucks turn out level with this formula.. We are building a 2000 Xtra cab right now, and have a 01 Double cab here in the parking lot with a 3" front 5" rear combo sitting nice and level.

I'll see if I can't find a digi cam and get some pictures to you. The truck runs 35" Yokohama Geolanders, on a 10" Wheel. It does have a body lift also.

Just wondering what aal your are running. I have been trying to get the right height out of my chevy springs after I removed the 2" block. So far I have added a leaf from a ford leaf pack, Which gave me a little lift, Maybe an inch or so. To help with the tuck I remove the overload spring. Chopped it down to the width of my spring perch replaced the center pin and reinstalled it. Also since I have installed the Cornfed shackles I have lost a little there. So now all together I have lost almost 3 inches With my flatbed it is not as noticeable but I would like to pick it up at least 2 inches from where it sits now.
