    First Post, so go easy on me.

    I just bought a used 6" Fabtech kit with Dirt Logic's for my 2011 Sport.
    I knew going into it that there would be an issue with the VSC crap, but the price was right and I didn't have much time to research before snatching it.

    After some searching here and fabtechs website for part numbers, I think I've figured out that the steering knuckles are different now (seem to be the only different part #).

    Can anyone confirm this?

    I'm sure I can order new Knuckles if so. Anyone have an idea on price?

    If I'm totally out of luck, then I will just sell the kit to someone with a non-VSC equipped truck.

    It looks rad sitting in my garage, so I hope I can make it work.

    Thanks,
    Tommy

    Here's what I've found out, figured I'd post up the info since I couldn't find this information anywhere on this site.


    Fabtech changed their kit to include ALL tacoma 6 Luggers. This new kit includes all model years. The previous kit was not compatible with VSC equipped trucks. The new kit works for both.

    I need to purchase Component Box Part #FT26026BK in order to make the older style kit work with my VSC equipped 2011.

    This Component Box includes new steering knuckles, tie rod ends, sway bar relocating brackets and end links, and the impact struts. It retails for about $800.

    In summary, the differences between the new kit and the old kit is the Steering Knuckles and the Sway Bar items.
