    Seems like my search for a lift spindle for my 1st gen prerunner is STILL coming up empty. Is there a kit out yet or is anyone planning one? I did a alignment job for a 2006 4runner yesterday with a MT. He had the camburg UCA, coilovers, glass fender and a nice set of lift spindles. This is the route I would like to go with my truck since it seemed to work really well.

    Solo motorsports makes a lift spindle for the 1st gen prerunners. They also came out with a upgraded 4x4 spindle.

    i do like them a lot. i love the added track width they provide, i'll never have to worry about breaking a spindle, tons of ground clearance without having to preload the coils to get lift and once i do the lower uni ball conversion (in 2-3 weeks) i'll can say "good bye, fuck you" to the lower ball joint and get an extra inch of droop with the lower uni ball...

    but if i were you i would def build the rear of truck first before picking up the spindles...

    if you are planning to get the spindles, then either get a custom deaver pack of the 50T leafs... otherwise you're going to have the same problem i did, gnar bro lean ride height. the F67's just don't pair up well with the lift spindles, even with no weigth in the bed and 12" shackle.

    i have all TC SUA hardware on my truck. can't go wrong with TC. don't get the giant shackles... weak design. mine looked like this when i took them off...

    bummer, at least you'll be able to swap in a 50T pack later down the road if you want too... in the mean time the F67's will work just fine, you'll just have an undesireable ride height once you get the spindles

    Ive wondered how many people actually have the hangers set up correctly though. I dont think mine are going to end up sagging as much as yours did

    User error. :D

    The Giant design clearly is lacking though, but the price is right. If you buy the WIY kit its only $75 including bushings instead of $300 for the TC shackles (but for the record I have the TC shackles now).

    Mine after I pulled them off:

    Kid I sold mine too spruced them up a bit:
