    I haven't worked on a 4Runner with KDSS but thought it would be the same as the Landcruiser... When installing new shocks/springs or installing front spacers on the LC the KDSS regulator valves are opened 3 turns allowing the front suspension to drop and both sides of the system equalize. This is done with the rig on a a lift. After everything is reassembled the vehicle is put back on the ground (jostled side to side and front to back)and the vehicle is allowed to sit for an hour to resettle and adjust to the new angles. Then the KDSS regulator valves are closed.

    Wondering why the same procedure wouldn't work on the 4Runner.

    Good to know, thanks. From what I've read here nearly all described it as very difficult and no one mentioned this procedure.

    The IH8Mud.com 200 Series LandCruiser forum has a lot of good info on the KDSS system and Slee Off Road in Colorado has done a lot of work with rigs with KDSS and is where a lot of the information comes from. There's also a YouTube on the process. http://www.sleeoffroad.com
