    I'm thinking of putting Bilstein 5100 shocks on all 4 sides. Is a 2011 taco 4x4 double cab sb and my question is do I need to put a diff drop kit?

    No. It doesn't do anything anyway.

    I see that 3in. lift kits come with a diff drop kit but kits under 3in. don't. What's the reason.

    Some people have added a diff drop kit only to find out it can add vibration. Also I don't think it changes the cv angles all that much.

    what setting? Lift it check your angles, if you have any vibrations, or if the boots look like they rub, get one. Not much difference but every mm matters when dealing with suspension
