Mechic called (wrong Diff Drop bolts?)

My Tacoma is in the shop right now getting a lift with 5100s all around with Eibach springs and driver side 1/4" spacer.

The mechanic just called and said the wrong size bolts are in the Diff. Drop package.

Is this the right Diff. Drop for a 2011 TRD Sport DC/SB?

Toytec Front Diff Drop Kit (TAC-DR-05)
*(2) Main diff-drop spacers
*(2) 6" x 1/2" Bolts
*(2) 1/2” Nuts
*(2) 1/2" Flat washers
*(4) 8mm x 40mm bolts
*(4) 5/16" Lock washers
*(4) 5/16” Flat washers
*(4) Skid-Plate Spacers (1” x 1” x 1/2”)
*(1) Page instructions

but I'm going up 2.5" (Eibach 1.6" + 5100's set at 0.85")

I read a few posts here that said anything 2.5 or above should have a diff drop

I'll repeat: Diff drops don't do anything in 2nd gen Tacomas.

Lubricated bearings are a fad that will go away soon.

Tell the mechanic to duct tape the diff drop bolts to the side of the frame, they will be more useful there.
