you don't have to unhook either........there are people who swear you have to undo the swaybar but is just extra unnecessary work.......just get a friend and a big prybar to push down on the lower control arm and you will be set.

yeah...you gotta disconnect the sawybar. had a 4ft prybar on it, no go. in fact, it was a tite fit even w/swaybar detached. used the 1.75" setting. i'm loving it. about 1/2" difference from rear, almost exactly level. got to wheel em just a lil, gonna have to get the rears now tho. front soaks up everything. hardly even notice speed bumps, until the rears hit 'em:D i gotta say i'm very happy with them :kewl: the guy at NTB thought he was gonna kiepf my old ones. noticed a '97 taco in the employee lot:rolleyes:

anyways, not a bad experience. i would reccomend them to anyone.

I guess I am just special........I have never unhooked the sway bar to change the shocks on one of these trucks.

glad they worked out for you

have you worked on an 05+? maybe the setup has changed a little. i tried everywhich way to wrestle em out before disc. the swaybar. still were a bit of a bastard to get out.

how much you asking for the 85 'runner??

so far, they're great! i have not assed final judgement on them yet as my leaf springs need replaced. right now i'm comparing "front to back" over speed bumps, pot-holes, water-bars etc. i don't know if the back is THAT bad (leafs are crap, fix on the way), or the fronts are THAT good. when i first installed, i definately noticed them. they really do cushion the bumps. once the new leafs are on, i will have them on the rear as well ( still running stock bilsteins ) i don't want them (toyota) trying to blame anything on the shocks. the trails i usualy run on are low speed trails, so i don't really notice them. if the rears are like the front when i get them, i will almost be able to ignore all but the most devious speed bumps. :D long story short...i'd reccommend them to anyone!

BTW...love your sig!
