So ... The 2" drop from the Belltech springs, plus the drop afforded by Brian's (Beefed's) kit, will add up to a net how much drop from stock height?
I'm confused about your claim this will raise you truck. Do you already have a lower stance? If so - what is the current stance you're about to change?
... And what about the rear?
LOL i have no clue the drop in the front. i bought the truck with cut springs but i know for sure its slightly tucking under the fender. I talk to Brian and he said on std cab it drop only 1" in the front with the belltech and 3" with ball joint flip. So my guessing after installed 4ish to 5 inch drop.
Here a picture of my current setup
OK - I get it ... You're not certain how much drop you're starting from in the front.
It's hard to judge from the photo, but it looks like the rear is sitting a bit higher than the front (in terms of wheel well vertical clearance above the wheel / tire).
On pre-2005 Tacos the rear typically sits about 3/4" to 1.0" higher than the front. You know you have a 4" drop in the rear. If you've got about 1" more (tire-to-wheel-well-lip) clearance in the rear than in the front, I'd guess you're currently sitting at about a 4/4 drop.
If that's the case, this means the new front setup should be about the same (amount of drop) as the current one. ... Or at least close enough that it might be worthwhile to do the new setup (using the current shocks) first, so you can take shock measurements on the new setup rather than take a risk on micro-guessing it in advance.
Just my .02 ...
With a bj flip, your not changing the suspension travel
So all you need is a 2" or 3" drop shock up front for the cut springs and your set.
Blocks dont change the rear shocks travel legnth..
The shock mounting points are the same distance before blocks vs after.
All you did was space the axle off the leaf springs and a stock legnth shock will work.
Btw, your truck looks great!
