that's hardly going to be noticeable and a spacer lift is basically the worst kind of lift in terms of affecting ride quality negatively. this is so minimal that it probably won't do jack. i think you'd be better off leaving it stock and putting some better tires on it and maybe some cooler wheels.
i have bilstein 5100s set at 1.75 with no issues and no diff "drop". i love the ride quality...it's money.
your experience may vary
maybe your blocks in the back last time caused the problem??????? i have the tsb springs in the back

Reason: more info
buy some Icon coil overs, from Icon, and have them valved to be "cadillac cushy. I had a tacoma a few years ago I did this with to level it out and run 275/70/17 tires. It rode way better than stock, it soaked up all the small bumps and was very solid and soft, while the big bumps were still slow and controlled. All my friends always remarked how plush my ride was. Back then the Icon coilovers were called Donahoe.
i assume you are going with doublecab shortbed, easy, just buy the longbed. looks bad but you don't buy for looks. my son has the shortbed and we have to take my truck all the time for the extra bed length. we both have the toytec 3" with aal's and mine rides much better coupled with 275/70/17 load range c tires. high load range tires have alot to do with ride, stay away from the LT tires and put some adjustable shocks on. my truck was not a trd and i put the new rancho rs7000mt monotube shock and made a big difference over the stock dual piston shock. i've had 4wheel drive since 1972 chevy shortbed with a rancho 4" lift, new front leafs with blocks in the rear, now you want to talk about a rough ride. if you didn't have a seatbelt on you needed a helmet because your head would hit the metal roof. i have lifted about every truck i've owned from fords, chevy and toyota. my 97 chevy was the only 4wd truck that i did nothing to, biggest piece of crap 4wd that i ever bought, would get stuck in wet grass, so many problems got rid of it pretty quick.
