Front Shock Recommendations....

Hey, i'm new to this forum but i was just wondering if anyone had recommendations for a super basic front shock on my 2002 tacoma prerunner....it's a 3.4 with trd and locking diffs...

it has a 2" front lift, and i wanted some low budget shocks(190,000 miles and selling it soon)...i seem to have a hard time finding shocks that are compatible and work with a 2" lift on that truck....any help would be greatly appreciated....

Ian
