What suspension setup is that on the 3rd gen. at the bottom??? Is the rear sway bar not connected?

I have the following rear setup:

1) Stock Coils
2) Cornfed 2.5" spacers
3) OME Firm shocks
4) 18" Mastercraft limiting straps

What you see in these pictures is me flexing it out with the passenger side rear shock and limiting strap disconnected. What I discovered is what I thought was going to happen. The shock location and lower link arm length are the limiting factors to our rear suspension really getting flexy. The top links seem to stay pretty lined up throughout both compression and extension, so I think they'll be able to stay the same. I gained about 3", and I know 6-10" is possible with relocating the shocks and lengthening the lower arms. Wouldn't that be sweet?

Chris

P.S. I don't have a rear swaybar, obviously.

Yes - Joe in the Isuzu and Jeff?(Redplastic)-in the '85 4Runner. Austin broke a cv at Fains Ford-Doink and Doc suffered a little body damage and anyone in the group with me suffered a few scratches from an adventure a couple of miles down the wrong trail-a 4wheeler trail.

Oh yeah wabbit-that mudhole on Trail 8 is now impassable w/o a major lift-Doink tried hard and the mud came over his headlights.

Yeah that mud hole stopped everyone from making it to slickrock that night, Paul, Mark and myself got turned around before we even made it to the hole by the rest of the group coming back saying Mike almost drowned attempting it. Justin said a Zuk(I'm guessing) belly flopped in the hole from the top of the hill climb out.

It was a good time, aside from the two long nights of repair back to back. One due to Toyota and the other just to dumb luck, altough we did get to hang with some cool guys on rockwells like Justin said. Austin I guess that proves your point you were trying to make about Jeep guys, never knock them b/c they me be the ones to save your butt sometime.

I got to ride in THIS , it was interesting just to hear the axels smacking everything on the way up and down without a care in the world. But the ride sucked in the long run b/c it turned into a party on the trail , with me a long way from the rest of the guys and me holding the keys to Justin's truck, sorry again guys I had no idea. :pat:

I suffered only a few dents and dings, a nice one on my rear bumper and a bit of rock rash on my fender flare, then of course the tree scraches, that Paul swares will buff out. Sliders worked great, thanks Brian and a big thanks to Joe(I'll get in touch with you soon).

Ya know.... for a 4RUNNER Jamboree, I sure do see a lot of pics of my buddies ISUZU.... ha ha ha...

Sounds like you guys had a great time. I'm glad Joe was able to hook up with you... he can do things w/ that Isuzu that I NEVER thought I'd see an Isuzu do... ha ha ha....

Unless I have a person riding with me, which I don't most of the time, I don't get many pictures of my rig anymore. Supposably, everyone else got some good pics of our rigs. We'll see!

I had fun guys, thanks to everyone that made this weekend so great. Sorry no picture from me this time.
Scot, you did great, sorry about some of your damage. The scratches will go away, just use some compound and a buffer, than put a coat of wax, it'll look better than new.

it was just after he came out of fain's ford, when you go up and turn left to go up trail 4, there was no abnormal load, no spinning, no nothing, just a snap.

Thanks Paul for giving me that push to go harder everynow and then, I needed the confidence boost, once I scrached up that fender I was fine from there on out, once she wasn't a cherry anymore it made it easier, going up and down trail 8 left me with a dented gas tank, rear bumper and a smaller exhaust tip. I had a good time and that is all that matter, the rest is just minor details. Thanks, Mark, Paul, Doc, and Bret for a great time.

Justin check your PMs, I left my Jacket in your truck.

Hey Paul,

Thanks for the shots - we had a great time. Andrew learned a lot and enjoyed talking with you. He loved your enthusiasm for the USA. He talked all the way home about what we take for granted. Great time with everyone !!!

I got a little body damage when we mistook trail 10 for trail 8 - notice trail 10 - not on the map !!!!!!! ATV only trail - good climb though

I'll get a picture of my body damage later today - creased the right front fender. The coil wire slipped out at Fain's Ford and I thought that I would spend the night in the creek - another weird happening at the Ford. Thanks for hanging with me Brett ! Brandi is a good woman - you done well !
