    Sweet! I cannot wait until tomorrow to drop the front. Dropping the rear improved handling greatly.

    Very cool!

    This might be a stupid question....but I have to ask...

    I sold some leaf springs to a guy who was lowering a Jeep. It's sprung-under-axle similar to yours...

    To lower his jeep - He actually did a Spring-over-axle conversion and ran the springs upside down. As in....an umbrella shape instead of a "U".

    Ever hear of that?
    Seems like a lot of work to do it that way....?

    Actually, yes. Not on a tacoma, but I did a really cheap drop on a 93 ranger that way. It rode like crap, I wouldnt recommend it.:D

    I like it... it's a sporty look drop not dragging the ground drop..I hate the trucks that are lowered like 5 or more inches ... next all you need is a aftermarket front air dam and a roll pan
