    The diff. drop is recommended on lifts greater than 2". The drop kit is rather inexpensive compared to the costly repairs that could result from the altered geometry of the front axles.

    2.7L 3RZ,K&N filter, 4" deck plate mod,flowmaster 40 series,3" body lift,3" suspension lift,35's. I also have another tacoma a 97 with a 350 small block in it on a 1972 blazer frame...
    actually most recomend diff drop for 3" and over...but really with manual hubs even 3" isnt bad...if your truck has ADD hubs would recomend diff drop even at 2.5" if manual hubs I'd say dont bother had same kit on my 97 for 3 years or so with no diff drop

    That's what I was originally thinking, but when I did some searches, all I came up with was the 2". I figure better safe than sorry.
