    Hi all-
    My 95 Taco 4x4 has 296k, (finally rebuilt the mtr at 289k) I purchased the truck new..after 4 sets of tires, I finally decided to go big. I lifted the truck with spacers in front, shackles and air bags in the rear. The shocks have given out and I'm looking for recommendations for a kit.
    Since it's a IFS, I'm looking for something with a lot of articulation, (I don't want to lock up the front diff) but still safe on the road. Please advise
    Thanks in advance-

    I inquired at 4wheel parts about Bilstien 5100 and Eibach springs, I was told the 5100 does not fit 1st gen trucks. Are they wrong?
