So I did a 2" suspension lift on my runner about a month ago, i installed coil spacers in the rear and ball joint spacers in the front. However, I wanna go a bit higher.
I've looked at numerous lift kits, and seems that generally they include longer shocks, bump stop extenders, longer sway bar links, drop downs for the front diff and control arm brackets, as well as new rear control arms.
I can make up most of the components in the kit, with the exception of the front spindle adapters, you could in theory use ball joint spacers double stacked to get the 4" space you need, but your tie rods wouldnt be corrected. How high can you go with the factory tie rod ends? or is their another alternative to raising the tie rod bracket? Can you drop the steering to accomidate?
If someone had a lift kit off a truck they're waiting to install, id pay them if I could swing by their place and measure up all their parts.
Let me know what you guys know or if you have any links to other guys building their own lift kits. I appreciate it.
