    Hi yall,

    I am super excited to be the new owner of a 2005 SR5!

    I am looking to start making modifications to it. Right now I am looking to put a 3" lift and 33" wheels. Right now I am looking at the Bilistein 5100 Coilovers, XD798 Adicts 16" for wheels, and KO2 285/75/R16 for tires.

    I guess the main question is will this combination work? I have an idea about how it will look but I am worried about it not fitting together correctly.

    Also how would it work for a spare? Would it be able to fit where the spare is now or will I have to buy a swing for the back?

    Any advice?

    Side note, the next thing would be Sliders. Where should I look for a simple bolt-on design?

    Thanks!!

    How many miles on your SR5? Rear differential ever serviced? transfer box? Front differential?

    How about chassis rust? Sway bar replacements? Lower arms with new bushing assembly.

    Before you start tearing stuff apart best check your lower control arm cam bolts. If you lift it near 3" It will require camber/caster adjustments.

    Dear Fellows, someone know if the rear diff of a 2008 4x2 sr5 4.0L is a limited slip or is a normal diff? the question is because I heard if I put a non LS type into a LS diff type this will broke my diff.
    Looking forward to hearing from you, also thank's in advance. (sorry for my english, is not my native language)

    Pretty sure 4runners don't have limited split - just cars. I used Valvoline 80-90W (conventional) when I changed mine 6 months ago (3 quarts GL-5)).
    Use synthetic is recommended. Take fill plug out first.. drain and fill.
    SR5 145,000 miles, 2WD V6

    Synthetic where I live was 5 times the costs of conventional Valvoline.
