    Toyota doesn't change much in their specs from model to model. So I am going to say that I am 99.9999% sure the packs are the same. And if for some reason they aren't, then your ubolts will have a slight angle to them.

    Toyota works with top of the line engineering and simplicity at the same time.

    Yes they do. I had 4x4 leaf packs on my 5 lug and they fit just fine.

    But keep in mind a 4x4 or Prerunner stock leaf pack will LOWER the rear of a 5 lug anywhere up to about 1.25 inch, depending on how wore out the leafs are. this is because 5 lugs are spring under axle and 4x4s are spring over axle, so the 4x4 leafs are not arched as high as a five lugs leafs.

    So to get the stock (or close to it) gear ratio back with 31's what gears should I get? I really don't know anything about differentials

    In these trucks 4th gear is a 1:1 from engine to driveshaft right?

    3rd is. I guess I'm not sure if it's exact but watch your needles when your're shifting. 3rd gear they stay parallel (or damn close to it)

    (new tire size/old tire size) X old gear ratio = new gear ratio

    Depending on all of the numbers you may get a number for your new ratio that no one makes. At that point you just find one that is closest to it, or even a little higher or lower depending on your personal preference.

    $125, but I'd prefer to sell local to avoid shipping.

    -edit I forgot that they were drilled out to 3/8" to accept an upper uniball instead of ball joints.

    Can someone point me in the right direction here. My dad has a 2004 5 luger and I ordered him some shocks off rock auto and they sent us 6 lug shocks. It clearly stated 2.4 base when we bought them. From that I assumed they would be correct. Now I cant find any sort of stock shocks to replace any where! Can someone show me a place? Or sell me theirs in good shape? Thanks!
