the double d shaft has a plastic pin in it that you need to drill out to extend it then drill a new hole and put a cotter pin threw it or they will give you a litttle bolt in extension

I put the exact same kit (3" perfomance accessories) into my old '89 4runner. Real easy to do, it included all the parts you need.

For the steering you drill out the existing press pin, slide the shaft apart a bit, and then drill a new hole and push the new press pin in. They even give you the 1/8" drill bit to do it.

Comes with braket to lower the rad, and also move the front bumper up. Rear bumper is attached to the body, so it will be fine still.

the current shift hole has 2 sections to it, and you need to cut out the small piece of sheetmetal in between them. The shifter might also need to be bent a little bit. I had to bend mine in the vise so it would go into all the gears. You can reuse the stock shifter boots if you flip the bottom one upside down.


It also included some mics hose that i think was for extending the gas tank filler, but mine was still nice and flexible and reached just fine.

I *think* i might have had to buy a small 'L' shaped heater hose to plumb the heater in. They give you a straight piece that would work, but its a pretty sharp bend & might kink so you're better off getting the L hose


Easy to do in an afternoon. just take your time and watch all the misc hoses, brakeline, clutch line, wires etc as you're lifting the body up (do one side at a time). There were a few things that needed their bracket either losened or bent a bit to work, but there was planty of slack in the lines so it never caused a problem.

Dude I would SERIOUSLY reconsider leaving your steering like that. Do as Stinkfinger and BigE have suggested. That is the correct and safe way. If you check your riding on very little spline now.
