Make sure you put the ABS sensor in before you connect the UCA. You need to have the spindle bent down as far as possible to tighten the bolt that connects the ABS sensor. It's a PITA to do while it's connected. Maybe find a tie rod separater. The outer tie rods were a PITA to disconnect from the old spindle and PITA to install as well. Finally the bolts that you disconnect to take the brake line off might be extremely tight so try your best not to round the nut. That's pretty much the best sort of advice I would be able to tell you. Good luck and post pics when it's done!

1 - grind the weld areas so that the calipers fit flush. test fit calipers and you will see what i am talking about.
2 - as stated, speed sensor in before anything
3 - install ext lines AFTER you install spindle
4 - get alignment ASAP!
5 - have access to brake line flare tool (i needed one to fix stripped brake hard line nut) and a puller (to pop off tie rod end and upper ball joint), both can be rented free from autozone, kragen, etc. i needed both for my install!

thats all i can think of now

LAST SENTENCE:

3.5” Lift Spindles 05+ Tacoma Prerunner, 06+ FJ Cruiser 4x2, 03-09 4Runner 4x2
Finally a race inspired bolt on lift spindle for your 2005+ Tacoma Prerunner, 06+ FJ 4x2 and 03-09 4Runner 4x2. TOTAL CHAOS spindles are designed to add an additional 3.5” of lift and can be installed with existing aftermarket mid travel upper control arm and coil over shock packages. These systems combined provide 6”+ of lift and maximum cross member ground clearance, allowing you to Install up to a 35” tire. Our tubular tower and plate design features internal gussets along with overlay plates to add strength and reinforcement to proven weak areas. The tower includes a tapered bung that offers a pocket to access the aftermarket uniball conversion nut or thefactory ball joint. The CNC machined billet hub includes a one piece bearing carrier, and caliper mounts that are integrated into the boxed main body. To maximize strength, TC’s spindle was designed to not retain the factory sway bar. With the heavier spring rates of aftermarket coil over shocks and the increased track width provided by the spindles (3/4” per side), the sway bar removal is not noticeable. Removing the sway bar also allows for maximum wheel travel and articulation which will greatly improve the vehicles off road handling and performance. TOTAL CHAOS lift spindles come powder coated black and include a pair of D.O.T. approved stainless extended brake lines. Lift spindles that are intended to be installed with TC long travel systems must be specified at time of purchase. ABS wire tabs and brake line tabs are included to aid in routing the lines away from contact areas to prevent damage to these components.
These will fit 6-lug 2WD vehicles only!
