Tell me your joking, threw them out! I'm also putting them under a yota. A 85 4 runner to be exact. EFI and solid axel Doesn't get any better than that. What did you run up front on your toyotas? Stock rear springs??

i have land cruisers, everything is over built on those trucks. hell yell i threw them out,they were taking up space. i hate keeping things that look like crap. i have done so many solid axle conversions, efi is okay, but get an older 22r and go full propane, that is the sheeeeiiiiiiit. i have been building these offroader for around 6 years. my boss just sold his buggy w/ rockwells, chevy 350 propane, 205 doubler, nv4500 pimp mamajamma. we just went out 3 weks ago.

a stock land cruiser front is stronger than a dana 60, as long as you run "long feilds". i also run a stock land cruiser rear w/ disk brakes. i have also run land cruiser stuff on a nissan we straight axled and lifted 15 inches. it was running 40's.

why would you change from the toyota axles? that shits bullet proof with the stock running gear. also i am not sure what your asking, if i run stock rear springs on the front over the yodas? when we do solid axle swaps we try to get an idea of the weight the vehicle is, load, and type of drivng this will be. most of the time, unless there are engine swaps involved you run the stock springs, but from the front, in the front. we only run the chevy rears, in the rear because they flex more. anyoine who has off roaded the yoda pu's knows there is no flex in the rear.

i have a customer that has a pu with a cobra mustang engine in it. it is pimp, faster than mustangs in a 4x4 yoda, haha. the rear axle, transfer case, tranny, front axle, the whole driveline is good for right at 395hp. if you go over that then i would swap in cromoly shafts, you should already be using "long feilds" anyway, and then you are good to 425 hp. after that go with full width 60 in front and a 14 bolt or 9" if you like those in the rear. tranny and transfer cases, if you do rear engines then you should just go gm stuff, it is cheep and strong.

also really depends on what you do with the vehicle. i work at LCS, or Land Cruiser Specialists, in austin, tx. it is what i do, i like all vehicles though and that is why i got bimm. bob marly-fest is here though, i have to walk downtown and go, i will take pics for ya'll and put them in the atx page.

Dude sounds like you guys do some badass work also very $$$$$$$ work. I'm a budget wheeler. Did the samaurai for $2gs cdn and picked up this 4runner for $800. All i'm really looking to do is get it up a couple inches and get some articulations going.
I don't want to change the driveline at all. If i have the money i'd go rockwells though. On pirate FAQ page they talk about doing chevy's up front and toyota rear leafs in the front. It moves the axle forward about 2" and lifts it 2". Also flexs well. Anyways if you have any pointers for me i'd greatly appreciate it. Keeping in mind i'm not going to be wheeling this on too much just something to take me to work and camping, and maybe a little wheeling. What lift kit would you suggest for a sa 4 runner ?

Thanks again
