Question about 2003 Toyota Tacoma
In order to understand my answer you have to review the law of physics.
Force = mass X acceleration
F = M A
Quick refresher link HERE
You upgrade added weight and heighten the central of gravity.
Are you carrying any payload?
The higher CG is causing part of the problem and the additional weight will require higher negative FORCE -F to stop the truck.
The economical solution is to shop for VENTED ROTORS with 2 years warranty and good set of lifetime warranty Ceramic pads.
Change brake fluid to DOT4
Load-sensing proportioning valve (LSPV) is out there.
SEE LINK HERE
I would beef up the front brakes first before looking into Load-sensing proportioning valve.

Not so much a way to measure the postion as there is a way to prevent the problem. before you installed the aftermarket components you could have measured the position while the vehicle was unloaded and made sure it remained in the same position after the kit was installed. you may have to try to modify (bend, adjust, or somehow malipulate) the bracket until you get the desired results, or you can try adjusting the rear brakes to be a little bit tighter if they are drum brakes to take some of the work load off of the front. there isnt an exact science to it because there are too many variables involved when a vehicle has been modified as in your case.
