1991 V6 Toyta Pickup with 3" suspension (IFS) and 3" body lift, 35x12.50 R15 all terrains.
Hey nice ride - that's a pretty big lift with IFS. Did it result in much positive camber? That's one thing I'm noticing after my IFS lift and it was only like 1.5".
Welcome to the site, btw!
Thanks for the welcome.
My IFS sits pretty flat, actually flatter than stock (see profile pic). The way it's configured I don't think I would have any different camber than stock. I do get some front drive shaft vibration, I haven't taken the time to figure out if that's a worn U-joint/CV joint or if it's just the higher angles from the diff being dropped 3". It's very stiff, if I had the cash and the time I'd go solid axle for sure.
It could be axles. I've broken a number of axles so far with the IFS lift and I imagine they're getting more wear from regular driving as well. I'd like to go solid front axle too but as you say, money and time. One of these days..
Solid front also wrecks your highway ride - or so I'm told... but then that's not really what these things are about!
Thought I'd just add that the reason you never see me is this truck became mechanically undependable (low compression, chronic clutch issues). I did get the clutch sorted out - if anyone has problems with toyotas eating master cylinders, you need to replace and reinforce the support bracket. But in the end the 3.slo up and died and it's just sitting in my driveway awaiting a TDI diesel conversion. Might be able to start that project in the winter, but it's some pretty serious work...
I still lurk here and stalk your trip reports from time to time. Once I get back up and running I'll definitely be down for some wheelin.
Ah sorry to hear it! Do you have a new engine already? Why not go for a 3.4 swap?
solis axles only suck when you let them flop around like an old school cj or somethan, put a pan hard bar on my front axle and its tight to drive on the road.
Well it's finally time. After nearly 6 years hard years sitting in the driveway, during which time some punk set the interior on fire (uninsured, but doused pretty quick thankfully)... it actually has a 1.9 L TDI sitting in it. Man does that engine look "new" compared to the truck! It's at the point where it still needs *everything* in order to work, but actually having an engine is a pretty big step. I have a a custom wiring harness just freshly delivered from fastforward.ca and I'm using a conversion adapter from TDConversions.com. Shout out to the latter, they're local - in Errington, and very helpful. Now I just need all the other stuff that that makes it go, like fuel, cooling, exhaust, intake... and seats!
If anyone knows anyone that would be interested in a salvage 3VZE long block and all the stuff that came off it, let me know.
