    I want to ask for help about how to drop a differential(front) for a 4x4 '95 Toyota Tacoma. Is it really that difficult because I see the drop kit and i see bolts and screws xD, Thank You.

    Its a simple install a little more than 15 mins IMO if you deal with a skid plates, I usually time a job from the time I read the directions to the time I put my tools and equiptment away. my 0.02

    Daystar 2.5 spacer, it rides like hell off road and I have gone through 2 sets of upper ball joints. I think I'm gonna go with OME 881's nitro chargers and rear aal this summer.

    eibach makes a good spring, but for the price OME makes a better coil IMO and you get more lift out of it then you would with the eibach about 1.5 inches more

    checkout www.wheelersoffroad.com for all OME setups, they will tell you what you need which like taocmakid said would be 881's unless you're planning on putting a bumper or winch
