New Kid on the Block
Alright I want to get some input on something I've been thinking about. I have an '04 DC 2wd that I've been wanting to get a little more lift out of. I currently have Fat Bobs's 2.75 strut spacer and Contitech air bags in the back. Right now I am at my limit of upper ball joint travel with my current spacer, and being a full time student eliminates my ability to go out and just buy a 3"+ lift or new UCA's. I got to thinking, on my old 4Runner I had a 4Crawler balljoint spacer that actually lifted the front end and increased travel. I understand that the 4runner uses torsion bars and a spacer would not function the same on our Tundras but what it would do is remove the great angle put on upper ball joint. After some research I realized that this is exactly what most major lift companies use in their 4"+ kits in conjunction with a sub frame assembly and a 4 or so inch strut spacer. Now I am not looking to go that high so I figure all I would need is a 1-1.5" BJ spacer that would allow me to go to a 3.5" strut spacer. After talking to Roger over at 4Crawler he seemed to believe that it was very doable. What do you guys think? Here's the one on the Tuff Country lift, sorry for the small size.
