In the process of installing a total chaos lt kit for my runner. Next will be the rear. Any ideas or suggestions to get some travel out of that axle?
Did you spring under or over and what length?I second the leaf spring swap. I have done it on my 1990 4Runner and I couldn't be happier.
With the stock 4-link you will always be chasing broken links, broken link mounts, expensive coils, or in the case I saw a couple of weeks ago, broken coil spring bucket off the frame.
My leafs have been a bolt it and forget it. I did go with stock chevy main leaf and custom cut the rest of the pack. I can't wait to get a set of Deaver's.
Do you have the DR link to that runner?theirs a guy on DR that has a 96 4runner, he did a really nasty 4 link setup on it, but you are looking at going through the bed either with a leaf or a 4 link with the shock mounts because of the travel you would need to acheive with such.

to get the travel he needs, hes gonna have to go through the bed, no way around that, you wont get any travel with the stock shock locations.your better off going leaf spring in the rear it easy other wise use ome 2' lift springs and make new lower and upper links and retane stock shock location get longer shocks and mosdef limiting straps
