Short write-up for 1.5 Toytec 1.5 AAL for TSB install with brake line bracket mod and new long version 5100s.
Possibly a good supplement to Relentless Taco's excellent write-up:
..I used his as a guide, you should too if giving this project a go.
Before shot.. getting my tools together.
Before: Ground to fender flare driver side - just shy of 38"
Before: Ground to fender flare passenger side - 38"
Had to get creative with lifting.
Leaf pack free. I found that vice-grips also work well for compressing the top leaves, in addition to c-clamps. I also experiemented with a ratchet strap to pull the top three leaves towards the chassis to allow for unough space to fit the new AAL, overload leaf and long-ass bolt that needs to go through all of them. Ratchet strap was the ticket for me. I couldnt get enough space without it.
The AAL in and lined up
Sawzall to fit the factory bump stop back on... I still need to get taller bump stops to prevent shock bottoming. I'll be taking it easy until then.
Plenty of threads to spare re-using the stock U-bolts.
Stacked some old shock bushings and used longer bolt to bring the brake line bracket up a couple inches.
After: Ground to fender flare driver side 40"
After: Ground to fender flare passenger 40 1/4"
I got rake. Next weekend is 5100's and 885s with dvr trim packer for the front to replace the 1" daystar spaces and TRD Billys I installed long time ago.
