No, this truck has shocks in the front, you only need a spring tool if there were struts,youll have no problems doing it yourself ,good luck.

98 toyota tacoma tipped on the left side


the weak spring is making it tip. also you say the other shock is leaking fluid. you need to replace both shocks and springs, the seem to have been worn down, there is no fix other than using spring blocks to boost up the saging side, but i would recommend replacing it all.

99 Toyota Tacoma a/c reads high pressure on low pressure side


Does the compressor run?
Low side could be high without a running compressor.

A running compressor?
The expansion valve itself is about $50 and bolts in.
You will have to remove the 134a gas before installing a replacement expansion valve and vacuum the system before recharging.

Changing Front Shocks on 2001 Tundra


Its pretty straight forward with the proper spring compressor, the springs are pretty strong. After you remove them from the truck mark the top plate and spring to maintain the proper orientation when you swap out the shock. If the top plate turns it'll be hard to get the studs lined up on install.
