Will I need a angle shim for a 3" block in the rear? I read something on another post that was kinda hinting to it. And if so where can I get one and is there any problems that go hand in hand with the shim

I've heard that some blocks are angled already, but if not it is a good idea to correct your driveline angle to save premature wear on you u-joints and bearings.

where can I get a angled shim from? I'm guessin its all kinda universal for 3" block kits right?

the 4" blocks that comes with the djm kit is already angled. for 3" blocks, you really dont need angled blocks if it's a single cab.

what could happen if i don't have angle on my blocks??? its just flat blocks intalled on my reg cab.

The lower you go, you may feel vibrations from the driveshaft. Angled blocks help the vibration. If you don't have the vibration, don't worry about it.

I should be able to add them if I need them, no problem right ? Thanks for all the info

about a week late, I got a set of 2.5" springs, shocks and 3" blocks coming I just wanted to make sure I can drive my Taco home without any trouble

Yeah, you only need the angle corrected really when you go 3" or more lower in the front.

I picked up a Belltech 2/3" drop on Ebay for my 2000 extra-cab 2WD. The 3" lowering blocks for the back had a slight angle to them. I put the high part in back and the lower part toward the front the way common sense dictates. I have a vibration now. Anybody got any ideas about this?

on extra-cab models you need to flip the mounts on your carrier bearing due to the 2 piece driveshaft, read the djm kit instructions in the tech section for info on doing this.
