are you running toyota axle for your swap or what.....:confused: The rear leafs i would go to a junk yard and pull chevy 63 best bang for your buck then go to ruff stuff and order the CHEVY TO TOYOTA spring kit. Thats your rear end. 90 4runners i believe are coiled in the rear. 90 4 runner arnt straight axle either....???? Not sure what you would use off of it but if you need something grab it i guess :D

Op has many hours of research left. If people are asking what will work they haven't done enough research. Go read every thread on TTORA and Pirate4x4 twice and then make your decision.

A 90 4runner has the same suspension as you. There is no SA. Why are you even doing a SAS anyway?

NwiTACO 06-28-2012 09:11 AM

Cuz its the new fad

97yota4wd 06-28-2012 09:13 AM

whats your budget op?

and since a solid axel front is custom... you can put anything you want under it, technically.

Is the SAS group that tight nit that they don't want to help out by answering questions? Couldn't you just simply answer the question instead of just telling people to do more research? What the hell do you think this person is doing by asking the fucking question? When you read through all of the other threads explaining how to do this it is very informative no doubt but you can simply get lost and confused by the abundance of info, its over whelming. You talk about not wanting people to have bad info but more often than not you respond with do your research. No doubt you know your stuff and have a very well built truck but damn man. The first time you built a truck did you not have questions? I know damned good and well that you didn't read through threads and have all of your questions answered without asking some yourself.

Because he (SupraTT) did research and then asked educated questions, not dumbfuck ones. Just like if someone asked what 2 plus 2 was...there is a certain level of knowledge expected of an individual before deciding to go in a certain direction with a build, and obviusly the OP has not yet reached that level of knowledge. Reading or researching for five minutes would enlighten him as to how dumb of a question he asked. And why he got the response he did.

luk8272 06-28-2012 09:22 AM

When you don't know you ask. Since when is that a crime? And who determines what is a dumbfuck question (You?) When what you decide someone has asked a "dumbfuck" question why not simply answer them and point them in a better direction? Its doesn't take that much longer to type a helpful response than the ones you post. Lazy?

Throw a question my way and i'll try to answer it. I've spent lots of time trying to.a budget build on my.tacoma. Direct question are better than general question because you'll have 10 different ways and answer when asking general question.......

Alot of good and useful information is on pirate unDder tacoma and also pickup and 4 runners. :D

I wasn't really trying to be mean. And I was helping him. I spent 4 weeks straight every day after school 5-8 hours a day reading the forums. The ENTIRE month of January I spent reading. I did ask questions, here and there that I couldn't find specific answers to. But I did research. Even to this day I ask questions...

These aren't lazy responses, we spent over 100 hours researching and learning information that may not be helpful, and may be helpful. It's time others do there fair share of reading. The best answer we can give you is to research.

Shit we've done over 40 hrs of research just on Supras full hydro steering alone, and we havent even asked a single question yet. The answers are out there....the lazy thing is not to search and expect everyone to just give you the answers.

No doubt. I wasn't directing that at you.

SupraTT:
I know for a fact because your truck proves it that you do your research and are one of the better people to answer questions about a SAS. When I frequented Chevelle forums and asked the same old questions about things I felt were novice I would still answer them simply because I was in his/her shoes before and even thought the info is out there it is often times hard to find and even harder to understand because its not always your exact vehicle you are reading up on. So when I came across a member asking a question I posted a link to help them learn and gave them the answer in a simplified way. It left them needing more info yet that to was provided in the link I had provided. This is also the Internet and written words are easy to read yet sometimes hard to interpret.

I have been in these people shoes before and it is frustrating because I know I do alot of reading (my job allows lots of free time) forums yet I feel even more so lost afterwards, because we all know not everything on the internet is true and that in itself guarantees questions. You have made a great list of parts however I don't know exactly which parts I would need for my own build, the best write ups aren't done on a vehicle such as mine as is likely the case for others.

Nwitaco:
Na not mad, also not a bro.

Op, to find a front axle, best place to look is on craigslist. They have many used axles. Also, leaf springs. Go with the 63" chevy leaf spring swap. You can find these springs at a junk yard or craigslist as well. For the leaf springs all you need is the rear springs off an 88-2010+ 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton Chevy or GMC truck

The irony in this statement is if no one asked questions, what would your research stem from...


I'm surprised you didn't link your sticky.

It is ironic. However, people wouldn't be saying "research more" if this was the first SAS done :D.

I would like my sticky, but it's in this section and not much he asked would be answered.

What would be learned from SupraTT...drop your truck off and ask for a SAS. Drop your truck off and ask for a cage. Find someone to fix it all when you get it back :rofl:

Sounds about right!! It's a lot of info and a lot of it is different so it gets extremely confusing
