How is the bumpsteer with the triangulated 4 link? Would really like to know what your 4 link calc #'s look like as i would love to go tri 4-link but don't want to go full hydro yet.

Bump steer isnt bad at all. If im doing 80 and hit a bad bridge I get alittle but not bad like everyone says. The links are pretty parallel to the ground which helps too..

How much clearance do you have between the tie rod and lower links with the truck sitting level and wheels straight? I will be fitting my lowers in the next week or so.

One other question, how much did the factory coils compress when you put the weight of the truck on them?

Thanks

Id have to check tomorrow how much there is at ride height but Id say 1.5" They rub alittle because you can see marks where they rub. My tie rod is also tweaked all the way around because it sits so low in the back it gets hit all the time.


I dont remember how much they compressed but I remember its alot more than I thought they would. I have OME J springs in it, which are about a 6" lift spring.

Got the york compressor mounted, took out the factory a/c since it wasnt working so well and I have the half doors on when its nice out. Wired the compressor to the factory wiring. Push the a/c button and the compressor kicks on.


This is what the bracket for the factory a/c was like. Only problem is it tilted the compressor down to close to the frame


Solution, cut off the extra so the compressor sits parallel with the engine.


Back installed in the truck


Bracket welded and primed.


Compressor mounted up. Had to put a bigger piece of hose around the upper radiator hose since it was almost rubbing at rest.



Now have plenty of clearance from the frame rail



Fills my 35s from 10 to 30 in a min at idle. Im going to plumb in my sliders as tanks. Should give me about 5 gallons to aid in helping air up.

Only problem Im having is the drain in the filter im using keeps blowing out oil through the drain after using it for awhile. Its just a cheap filter so Im probably just going to upgrade. Although when I use it its dark out so it might be filling with too much oil. Havent had time to test it in the day time.

Been awhile...

Broke the front crossmember off again, probably due to the winch. Fully boxed the front section of frame and replaced the 1/8 crossmember with 1/4 and recessed it into the frame instead of inbetween







Getting ready to swap in a FF FJ80 rear with an Auzzie locker. Going to run 14" bilsteins and go through the bed to get the most out of the rear. Still trying to figure out how Im going to make the upper shock mount/tower. Probably going to make a tower on each frame rail with 2x2 and brace the two sides together.

Continued reassembling the axle tonight. Got the rotors on, ebrake adjusted, calipers on, drilled the flange for Tacoma pattern and tried putting the diff in. It would go almost all the way in, about a 1/4 in. above the axle, and wouldnt go in further. It looks like its hitting the inside of the axle on the bearing caps. Hopefully finishing everything up on Saturday so I can start on the rear shock mounts.

Finished up the axle swap yesterday and took it out wheeling today. Everything went well and even having the offset diff wasnt a problem on the road, took it up to 60+ and no vibrations.

Waiting on Hellfires high steer knuckles to finish off the drivetrain hopefully for a while.

3RZ, turbo trans, 4.7 23 spline case, and FJ80 axles front and rear is about the most factory parts built drive train you can get, aside from the 4.7s.

took it for a long ride last night, got up to 70 on the highway and no vibrations. The only thing with these axles is that the ebrake cable hangs so low. I got it working pretty good right now. I also have 1in wheel spacers on the rear to fit the 15s.

Wow that does hang down. I figured the 80 axle would look wider. Are those a heavy offset rim or something?

15x8 3.75 backspacing plus the 1 inch spacer.


The axles are only 3.5 inches wider than the tacoma axle.

I know its been awhile but the rear has been working without problems. I dented the drive shaft last time out wheeling and there still wasnt a vibration.

Got to installing the hellfire fabs FJ80 knuckles. Ran into some clearance problems with the drag link and tie rod though. Thinking on running a flat pitman arm and notch the frame or move the box forward.
