trying to get the 2wd off the damn ground, too low for my taste.

If I do this will I be able to get the nose up to match w/o aftermarket help?


An old picture but shows why I don't like it so low

Now I get it...... You will probably get close to 4" of lift if you do a SOA on the rear. To get the front up with out after market kits, you can crank up the torsion bars a bit. You will only get about 1 3/4" - 2" of lift out of the front. If you go more than that you will have problems. Instead of doin a SOA you might look at some other rear spring options like longer stock style springs from a mazda or a chevy. This way you can keep the the spring pads under the axle for less axle wrap and stock springs are cheep. You will have to cut off the front spring mount and move it foreward but that is easy to do. This should give you a bit of lift, load carrying ability and it should be easier to match the front. Stock Toyota rears are about 48" long, mazda's are 56" and chevy's are 63"
Good luck

It won't move the axle since the center pin is in the same location. Another added bonus is that it will ride smoother if you use the right amount of springs in the pack.
