All Pro Long Travel Kit Install

Hey guys. I have a few questions for you.

When installing the rear leafs from All Pro, are there washers that are suppose to go on either side of the bushings? The stock springs that I took out didn't have washers in there.

For those of you that have the long travel kit, did your kit come with steel washer on either side of the a-arm mounts up front (totaling 8, 4 for one side and 4 for the other side)? I also noticed that if there are suppose to be washers in there, the two fwd washers should be larger in diameter for the bolts to go through correct? My kit didn't come with any so that's why I'm asking.

Thanks for your time!

Which All-Pro leafs are you installing?!

And I'm sure if you call All-Pro you'd get a faster answer!

No washers on the rear leaf only the rubber bushing that's what I have.
For the front your suppose to have the washers and the two front washer are suppose to be bigger in diameter. Your suppose to have washer for the UCA as well. Hope that helps.

Contact ALL Pro and let them know your missing them.

Jordan, Thanks for the pictures! Seeing your taco juxtaposed with the other is helpful. Rep sent. Are you running 33" tires? Have you measured how much additional ground clearance you have gained with the kit+tires? I'd really like to know.

Thanks.

Thanks! I like it alot. There is alot more body roll then what I was use to before but that’s to be expected because the sway bar is off now. It rides great though. I have the allpro 3" leaf springs and fox shox in the rear.

Thanks! Yea, they are 33" tires by 11.5. I never did measure the ground clearance from before tell now. Wish I did though. You can see in the pictures it's quite a big difference from stock. At the bottom of the allpro front diff skid plate to the ground I'm sitting at about 13.5". I don't have the skid plate on in the pictures above though.

Nice Pics!

How are Fox CO's up front?! Heard from some that the valving is a tad on the soft side

Still can't decide if it's worth buying the Fox over the Walker Evans!

The Fox CO ride great offroad. When I driving on the road I can feel more of the bumps because the kit is much stiffer then stock, but thats to be expected. It rides great thou!
