Does anyone know if the Nitrocharger 9002 will work on the 2nd gen's. The Hilux pairs them with the 885's and they are whopping 5mm larger open and the same closed.

So I installed my lift about 3 weeks ago. Climb under it because my dakars were squeaky. (Ended up being a bolt rubbing metal.) anyway I just decided to look over at the U bolts just because I was under there. To my surprise on the drivers side 2 of the nuts had fallen off and all of them were loose well on the way.
It was so loose I could move the whole plate around with ease.
I had them tightened down gooooood when I installed it.
So guys please go check your u bolt nuts after a week or so could have been dangerous.

well I only had a 1/2 torque wrench but a 22mm 1/4 socket so I didn't use the torque wrench. I was going to torque them to 150lbs but instead just tightened them down pretty good to where I "felt" like it was at least 150lbs or maybe more. Either way those bad boys loosened up a lot. I checked my passenger side and it still had all the u bolt nuts but every single one of them was very loose and 2 at the tip about to fall off. Good thing I checked.

You got lucky.

150 ft/lbs is too much, and I'd be surprised if you could deliver that much torque through a 1/4" drive ratchet. Try 80-90 ft/lbs with a 1/2" drive socket, 1/2 turn on each nut, in a cross pattern.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I am getting no vibes with the carrier bearing drop. I can't find my piece of paper that I wrote my before and after numbers on so I won't be able to post them until I find it. I still need to clean up the garage.

I'll do that.
It seems to me like a slightly larger shock couldn't hurt.(correct me if I'm wrong) The side by side pics that I've seen with the stock and OME struts always looked odd to me.
Would this help the dreaded "clank over speed bump" issue?

It was a bolt on the back end of the leaf springs holding them to the shackle. Looks like it was put in backwards when we got them in at 11:30pm it was so dark we just wanted them in. The bolt was just rubbing the metal since it should have been put in the other way. Would have been a PITA to turn it around so I just spaced it out with another washer and it is fine now.
