Saw that he was changing out his rear brake line for an extended one I think. I need to do that.

This is true.


Also got the 7100s on. That was "fun." Got plent o' down travel now! The icons were short by 1.5-2." Can't wait to take these things offroad! Need longer bumps first though. Finished as it was getting dark, so no pictures today.

Also, thanks to local TW member Chris / deadhed61 for the help today!

Well, the first one took a hell of a longer than the second - but isn't that how it always is?

It's just kind of difficult to get the hourglass bushings on the shock mounts as they buldge in a little bit. After you get 'em half way on it's not that bad - just grab a longer bolt and it'll push 'em on. The other thing is - compressing them up to fit on both mounting locations required a bit of finesse.

Also should add - there was corroded rubber and shit on the pegs - giving 'em a quick handsand down made the bushings slide on a LOT easier. Wasn't that apparent initially, but it made a difference.

As for bumps, I haven't quite decided. Either something cheap like the ES / Daystar or weld some square stock on the stock bump with a plate at the end. Got the idea from a ttora thread a long time ago. I'll see if I can find it...

Yeah, I've been looking into either AllPro or Wheeler's bumps, but I'd have to relocate the shock mounts to do a u-bolt flip first.

This is the general idea on how I'll probably do the bumps.


I've heard the wheelers one's are kind of worthless and compress into nothing. At least that's what folks were saying the LT thread recently. No first hand experience though

Does all pro sell something besides the timbrens? Those are fancy - but $$$. Honestly I don't huck my truck so I don't really care if it hits hard. I just want to make sure I don't over-compress on the trail.

Have any of you heard about a no-weld lower shock mount for 1st gens? I heard today that there was one (in association with a u-bolt flip kit).

I don't understand how it could work but I am very interested!

Interesting...

Yeah, Timbrens are the only ones from AllPro. But I figured I might as well go all out haha

Now that you've said that about the Wheeler's bumps I'll probably get the Timbrens down the road.

I've seen ones that utilize the u-bolts I think, not sure where though...

7100s in stock location. Got the resi's oriented today so they're not hitting anything as well as did an oil/filter/air filter change + lube driveline.



I'm thinking about adding longer shackles too to add some travel - the question is either 1.5" longer or 2.5" longer. The shackles will be All Pro to match to leafs, since it's all just bolt on.

Will those work with the all-pro leafs? I thought there some issue - at least I know the AP shackles aren't supposed to work with other leafs without modification.

Those Toytec shackles worked for my Alcan leafs... I would think they'd work for allpro too. Are the Allpro springs the same width as stock? If they are then the Toytec setup should work.
