    Hi everyone. I recently purchased my 2006 Taco cab trd with @40,000 miles. It needs a little body work and a paint job due to rusting. I want to:

    A. Level the truck.

    B. Install a locker on the front.

    What is the best way to level the taco? What locker do you suggest for thefront axel? Your suggestions are welcome. Hope to take advantage of the cumulative wisdom.

    to level it you have a lot of options. check out the suspension section.

    are you a 4x4? if so then a ARB locker will be your best option.

    Lift the front with coilovers and get a new leaf pack for the rear.

    Yes. The suspension feels like new so I will keep it until the time comes, to be replaced but that's another thread for another time.
