    Your profile says 2wd. If you are 2wd you don't have a front diff.

    Yeah, you don't have a front differential so you don't have to worry about that.

    Lowering the suspension is what you're after, correct?

    you can go with the DJM 3" drop kit, Sittin Sic coils (changed the company name but old web link will redirect you - although coils are meant for a XR w/a 4.0L engine, you can still use them, but will only drop you 1.25" for the most) or find someone that can make you spindle spacers. With the 2nd gen tacos, you can't do the bj flip like on the 1st gens.
