The dip is done and the wheelwell is huge due to other work I've done.

I also removed the spring tower and will probably be going with some 14" coilovers if I can afford them. If not I'll run some leaf springs I have until I can afford it.

I made the front dip disappear and now the wheelwheel ends just under the headlight. I removed the turn signal and will put a new light into the raised bumper ends. The side marker will be shorted about 2"
and reused.

The back is stretched back about 7" so it ends below the a-piller. I have one spot to weld in and some cleanup left to do.

Pictures will come soon hopefully. A friend is going to help me out.

I had another back fusion done a couple of months ago. I have to wear a back brace for about 2 more months.

Re: Pre-runner type suspension stuff

I'd love to see some pics, I remember you talking about it and wanting to do it. but not wanting to be the guinea pig

and I'd definitely save a few months and do coilovers instead of skimp for a bit and do leaves.
pics would be awesome!

bummer about the back man, I was supposed to have surgery about a year or so ago, but for some reason my back problems suddenly disappeared...
I'm sure that'll come back to bite me someday though...

Just wondering if it could operate properly that way. The shocks I just got bought hose is really too long to mount it the correct way.
Just to add to the answer you already got, the oil and air in the reservoir is seperated by a dividing piston, so it makes no difference how the reservoir is mounted.

That's a long hose........

Re: Pre-runner type suspension stuff

Funny that this thread is still floating around, after what, 8 years? Look where we've come.
