thanks. the suspension stuff did stiffen it up a bunch. you can always go the pure DJM route and retain your stock ride. also, because im not notched out back the ride is a little rough, but tolerable. if you go with the DJM kit and notch out back you should retain stock ride quality

hi,
im thinking of getting a SR5 access cab in white or silver. love the look of your truck but the Xrunner is only 1/2" lower then a stock 2wd AC, atleast on the brochure specs. how did the prerunner leafs drop your truck? please explain as your truck sits about where i want my future truck to sit. i only had Isuzus to drop and they have torsion bars up front

thanks man! the XRunners i beleive sit around 1" lower, at least in the rear. they have de-arched leaf springs in the back and slighty shorter and stiffer springs with better struts. i currently have on my fronts the XR stock springs that dropped me around .25", along with the DJM drop kit, which is upper and lower control arms that lower the truck 3 inches, so a total of 3.25" out front. in the back i currently have the PreRunner/4X4 leaf springs, with my 5 lug overload (the short spring on the bottom) instead of the stock 4X4 overload. i have it in the unhappy position, vs its stock happy position. in that setup with the XR rear bilstien shocks its a 1 7/8", so pretty much 2" drop. so combine that with a 2" block and im sittin at 4" out back. when i had just the 4x4/PreRunner leafs on, it was at a 1.5" drop.

if you have any other questions let me know

I am looking at getting the Sittin sick 2.5" drop kit for the front and 1.5" drop kit for the rear with a mono leaf. The whole kit runs for about $710. I am also looking at getting their front Sway bar and as soon as I can find a fabricator that will fabricate some brackets I will get their rear sway bar. I just want to drop it down a little bit to lower the center of gravity. It handles like a real bitch at 115 mph on the Autobahn. I figured out why my ride was so rough and that was because I am running the Stock TRD Billstein rear shocks. I am looking at going with a lot softer shock for the rear.

if your gonna get the mono leafs keep the bilstiens, theyre for an X runner right? if you run a leaf with less curve, the shock is not in its sweet spot anymore, so it rides a little better. and these shocks do work better when it has a stiffer spring to work with. leafs and shocks are a real funny thing lol it really depends on what exact setup you run...if you get the composite leafs, which are stiffer, and keep your rear shocks the ride should actually get a little better

and if you lower it you'll prob get a little better mpg. no joke. esp on our trucks.
