    Got a shipping update yesterday and my lift is finally in transit. As much as I love the leveled look, I also got half inch cornfed spacers for the rear to avoid the reverse rake whenever I load the back. Hopefully I can avoid the "lean" if not they'll come in handy for that. Already have the cornfed spacers in hand but I'm also waiting on spidertrax spacers to arrive as well. Couldn't be more stoked. My only regret since I had no plans for a suspension upgrade and this was spur of the moment was purchasing my General Grabber ATX in 265 last month. Have a feeling I'm gonna get the itch to go up to 275 or 285 in which case I'll definitely upgrade to JBA or SPC UCA's. For now, I'll wait to see how the 265's look after installing the suspension and spidertrax.

    Yeah, i am wondering how the rear springs will hold up when i pull my dirt bike. I have the small carrier that goes on the hitch and the dirt bike sits right behind the trunk. Hopefully it doesn't get that "South Carolina lean" haha

    You will for sure get the itch. I know for a fact that 265's don't look bad. Especially when they are an aggressive looking tire like the ATX, but its bound to happen. Run them for a year, and put em up for sale when you upgrade to 285s. Should be able to pay for at least half of your 285s.

    If you're going to regularly carry your dirt bike, you might want to invest in some Firestone Airbags for the rear springs.
    I towed a fishing boat home from Minnesota to Missouri last summer resulting in my nose in the air and rear drooping.

    For a couple miles to the lake and back the airbags aren't needed. Any long distance driving - a day or 2, you'll want them.

    I went with the struts/shocks only, no springs, to lift the front somewhat, and am happy with the result, especially since I got 265 Falken tires...if it were just me, I'd order the springs and complete the stage 1 lift, but my wife would have a time getting in...one of those little compromises that life is...

    Installed at last. I was running 1" spacers in the front before but I was expecting a more dramatic look for the front with the advertised 2.75". Set it up at the first notch. Curious to see if the rear will settle or stay.

    Only issue I'm running into right now is with the spidertrax spacers. Rubbed on both mudguards, took them off hoping that would fix it but I'm still rubbing. I can live with it for now but will be needing a body mount chop at some point especially if I plan on running larger tires

    Either way I'm stoked to finally have it on. Exceeded my expectations on the first drive, nosedive is basically non-existent now, cornering improved, handles amazing. I like everything about it right now.

    Before & after

    What is your caster set to after alignment? Are you still using stock UCA's?

    Still on 265's? maybe just remove the spacers? i have the pro rims with 285s and this lift. Only rubbing up front, but after minor trimming i am good.

    I wanted to run small spacers but was afraid it would rub on the frame.

    have you looked to make sure it was for sure rubbing on the frame and not the inner plastic?

    Nice 4 Runner! It looked good before and looks good afterwards, imho, haha. I guess the main thing is how it performs, which sounds perfect. It looks like it was more level before, though. I’d like to improve mine similarly, but unlike most, I’m not interested in too much lift. I like level, though, and maybe a hair stiffer. Off road capability depends more on other factors than on lift where I go.

    Hi everyone! New guy here...I ordered this kit from Wheeler's on Monday, just got off the phone with Travis there and it shipped yesterday, so I should get the kit in by Monday. I will have the coil springs powder coated blue before installing the kit. It will be going on a 2020 Midnight Black "Venture". I m very excited to see how it looks and feels once I get it installed. The plan is to put 285/70/17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers once the kit is installed.

    What blue are you going with? I can't wait to see it, bet it'll look great on a black 4R.

    275's should fit, BUT that are usually an LT tire (more durable BUT way heavier). Here's an 18 with the eibach kit, TRD wheels and 265/70 wildpeaks.IMG_20200103_081426.jpg

    Considering these wheels, so the blue to match.

    Its great to see a choice that is high quality and American made! They look fantastic!! When North American manufacturers make something, they really get it right, and its great to see folks supporting them and willing to pay for that quality.

    I’d love to see this when you get it installed, GRIZ. I was thinking the same thing with a 1/2” rear spacer.

    I ordered my kit last Monday from Wheeler's. It arrived today so it only took seven days and that included a holiday. I took the coil springs to get powder coated so waiting on that before I can get started on the install.

    I believe it is 3 - 4 and yes still on stock UCA's

    [​IMG]

    Still on 265's, I'm slowly getting the hang of avoiding going in reverse at full lock so yes rubbing on the frame. When I eventually switch wheels I'm looking to run an offset that'll give the same wide stance without spacers, so either -10 or -38 offset. I figure for now might as well leave the spacers on get the body mount chop and have it set up for when I get 285's and wheels


    I agree it looked alot more leveled before. My purpose for the 1/2" rear spacer was to give me 1.5" of total lift in the rear but I ended up with about 2" on both sides. I'm waiting to see if it settles down to 1.5". If it stays at 2" in the rear then I'll re adjust the front coils to the second notch when I install new UCA's. Since I'll be adding a front skid that should help level it or I can remove the rear spacers, not entirely too sure yet time will tell.

    Eibach vs stock

    Definitely looks good. From the photo it appears to have the same relative amount of rake as stock, not a bad thing. With the bigger tires it will be perfect. Thanks, Griz. Btw, great colour too.
