Typical thing for LT guys to do, but you need to have heimed uppers so you can still adjust your alignment. Otherwise you will be grinding out those cam bolts all the time.

Hmm. Ill look around and see what I can find.


My issue; as well as others id assume. Is the gap that every freaking shop leaves inside the ears. They never use the right size adjuster, or just plain flatten the ears out. If you hit/bump anything hard enough they're going to move. Im on shop 6. Even with the replacement tabs offered there are still gaps. Even in a pic on wheelers site.

I was thinking a tack on the top/bottom so its no sweat to grind it off

Anyone know if these will work for the front of my 4runner/1st gen? I'm assuming so since they are 6" travel and 19" extended. Also would I need anything besides the top hats to connect to the top eye and our coilover buckets up front? Thanks, I just want to make sure before I contact the guy.

Sway Away Race Runner Coil over shocks 6"


Good condition. Have scratches from mock up and being in the garage. Very clean only run for a few hundred miles on pavement and now changing my setup. 6" travel, 13" eye to eye collapsed and 19" extended.

You'll need misalignment spacers top and bottom and springs. Collapsed length is too short for factory CV setup so you'll have to run some good bump stops. IIRC you can need 19.5" extended with OEM replacement shocks and over 20" extended with midtravel (aftermarket UCA).

Whatever you decide...I HIGHLY recommend any of your coilover/shock needs go through Downsouth Motorsports. Damn near unbeatable prices and unmatched customer service (not to mention free shipping). I've tried dealing with all the shock vendors that post in this thread and can tell you first hand that none of them compare.

Oh definitely. DWM and Discount Tire are the 2 vendors that have my business unless something very drastic happens. Their customer service, prices and often times discounts/rebates are unbeatable

So I'm sitting here at work I want to know the real travel number differences between a regular C/O and an extended travel C/O such as Icon. I've seen claims of a full inch as well as 5/8's of an inch. It almost seems negligible. I know you have to run aftermarket UCA's to run an ext. travel C/O and the benefits of running UCA's; also that’s what makes “mid travel” midtravel. I also understand that every bit of USABLE travel is a good thing but is that 5/8''-1’’ really that beneficial? I'm prepaired to be flamed but I want to hear some oppinions.

Great questions!

I will climb into the flame pit with you! I claim ignorance to the Mid-travel thing! I am looking forward to getting info for my next suspension!

Thanks for asking!
