Its a kit by SOS performance. The front of the truck is lowered by the spring perches, and the back is 2" blocks. I have an X-runner though, and for it to work for a regular taco you'll need X_Runner front springs. they also have a 1.5/1.5, and i think an even lower one than the one i bought, i think its a 2/3. get on the website, and get the phone number. they're cool over there, call them and tell them what you would like to do. www.sosperf.com

theres no way that thing wont have any tire clearance problems. if all the fender wells and fender arches were all left alone...i wont go that low ever again, i went 3/5 with my dakota and it looks so sweet but my wheels would just shave the front fenders on big bumps. f'd up my tires and pulled the metal of my fender down when it hit. had to constantly rebend it up. never bottomed out though... anyone wana buy a dakota? its lowered...haha.

ACTULLY, i dont really. the front is 100% perfect. no rubbing. the back touches the inside of the fender wheel at the bottom of the stroke, but ill fix tomorrow. i am very suprised there isnt more rubbing, but it rides better than stock :waytogo:

gotcha...my dak has the djm kit, (lower a's and shackles/hangers) the only gripe i had was that the lower control arms with the kit were like 2 times as heavy as stock. but i guess thats all unsprung weight. never broke or anything though, ive been drivin it for about 3years like that.
