I believe you have coil springs in the front. You could get coil spacers, or new springs to lift it. check out http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/9504tacoma.htm or http://www.allprooffroad.com/

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

you have coil springs. I think they stopped useing torsion bars in the late 80's early 90's.

The 1989 - 1995 'PreTaco' Toyota pickups had torsion bars. The 1995.5+ Tacomas do not.

^^^ yep, nailed the years. I'd look at Toytec and Wheeler's for some lift options. you can also just search lifts on ebay and find some spacers on there for pretty cheap. be warned that they can increase wear on lots of IFS components and a diff drop spacer is also reccomended if you intend on going 2.5"+
