how long of a shock do you need? I have a set of skyjacker eye to stud ones that were in the back of the 4runner. They have 2 seasons on them but were installed when i did the SAS. I think they are 10 or 12 inch travel and 30inches long extended.

Sorry those shocks will be to soft for the front of the cruiser. I need a shock that can handle a heavy load. The Cruiser is one heavy SOB.

I know it is not the most exciting modification but I have to post something.
I was unable to sell my Cruiser in time to buy that Tundra so I have added a hitch and wiring so I can at least tow a trailer. I had no place to put the plug. So I integrated into the bumper for a factory look.

Man. How can people wait for back ordered parts. I have half the parts needed to take my cruiser to the next level. This waiting is killing me. I have been spending weekends at the lake clearing land and the week days studying to keep my mind at bay and I still need a vehicle modification fix. Confused

Stay tuned. I will actually be doing something soon. Shocked

I hope its a flux capacitor, so you can travel back in time to the good old days when we all use to go on wheeling trips all the time.

So how much lift is this going to give you?

Cheers

Cool once your done it would be nice to compare our trucks. I was tossing around doing this but I didn't know how much extra lift it would give me.

If you need a extra set of hands let me know.

Cheers

Looking for ideas on extending my panhards. Thinking they only need to be 1/2 - 3/4" longer. My idea is to cut them. Sleeve over. On the sleeve I'm thinking of drilling holes to kind of spot weld the original tube to the new one that is over the top and than of course weld the ends. Grind the spot welds down to give it a clean factory look.
Some on another forum put a sleeve on the inside and than cap it all with a tube that is cut along the length of it. Like the picture link bellow. Not sure it needs all that. I would post my idea on that other forum. But there not as productive as our forum.

you could just cut both ends off and replace the whole tube with one that is the correct length.

I don't know how your panhard is setup on your rig but with the 4runner i made a panhard drop bracket and was able to use the stock panhard bar. This way my bar was level at ride height and i did not have any bump steer.

if you are looking to do it quick and easy i think i would cut that pan hard right at the middle and put a bigger tube over top.. this way it should still look straight while you are working with a final length instead of cutting it off at the ends and taking a chance of things being off center when final welding.. it will just make it way easier with self aligning..
i think also i would have it sleeved and assembled but unwelded and install it back under the truck.. use a come-along to pull the body over the axle if needed to get everything squared up and then start your welding then..

as far as welding goes, if you are going to drill holes in the rod that goes over the original pan hard rod and plug weld it than make sure you have a welder that will build up enough heat and penetration into the base metal of your original panhard rod.. i would then still finish off with a quick ring around both ends to make sure that you dont melt your original bushings..
you can come over to use my big welder if you need to...
