you dont see them used very often...

big ern has a good site for some mroe info on them but we'll have to wait for that for a bit...

good luck finding a used set...

there is a fair amount of info, also if you search around on yotatech (youll have to google it) most of the people on there run them.

I have been debating trying them out also. I figured i have about a .5" torison bar crank right now, if i had a 1.5" spacer, and a 1" diff drop from that site it would be 2" usable lift with not terrible wear on cv boots.:confused0006: :dontknow: But then with a winch it may be too soft? Also some people say the diff drop although claimed at 1" gives more like only .5"? If you find out anything interesting lemme know!

I have run the spacers for about a year now with great results.

The diff drop applies to the 96-02 4Runners and Tacomas

4crawler recently released a 86- 95 diff drop

the difference is it drops the back side of the diff.


one day when I can afford luxuries again i am gonna try out a set!
