View Full Version : Revolving shackle Question

01-26-2004, 03:34 PM
Theres a set for sale that would fit on my stock 4Runner.(IFS with no lift)
Do I understand them right...Compression travel is the same but drop travel is increased...right? Would this cause any driveline problems?

u should be good little scary though when u think that u hav eused all your suspension and the BOOM! 5 to 6 more inches of drop.

you might need to get longer shocks in the rear... any other opnions on this?

I would think you would want longer brake lines and shocks to go with them.

I have heard of guys having dangerous issues with unloading during street driving... emergency stops... and then the vehicle contiues to move forward as the revolvers unload... Don't know if it would happen or not... but i have read that is an issue... and it makes sense that it would happen to me... so i stayed away from them. Someguys swear by them.

yep longer brake lins and shocks for sure, as for the braking I can see that point maybe find a way to lock them when your on the street and diconect when on the trail like a sway bar[3]
