SAS start 1997 4runner

My 1997 4runner is screaming for a SAS and it needs to happen soon. I just put on CV number 5 last week and now its already starting to go so it is time to swap it. Here it is as it sits right now



Now I want to make sure I do this right and get the right parts so i have been looking at all the builds i could find on ttroa and here and still have a few questions.

I want to use leafs but keep it low and run 35" tires, the 44044 springs should be correct?

Next the steering what kits have you guys use? I don't want to run pcs at the moment just hysteer.

As far as spring hangers I think the sky products looks the best...

I am going to run the d44 out a waggy how are u guys hooking up the brakes?

The rear suspension I plan on running leafs but at the moment I am just going to throw some lc coils in to get the 4 inchs of lift for the time being til my funds reload...


Comments, questions, concerns plz i need all the info that I can get........

search on craigslist for a waggy, i sold one very recently for 150. or i have a ford 8lug, low pinion just like the waggy, with flat top knuckles and large disc brakes id sell you for 250. as far as hi-steer stay local here in grass valley and get parts from partsmike.com or go to luke at 4x4labs on loma rica. The front hangers are so simple to build for leaf springs, ive peiced everything together from J&M Offroad, and from Luke at 4x4 labs. Also anything that you need cut on a cnc machine go to either No Limit Fabrication on Grass valley avenue, or right below them is twisted metal fab. on loma rica rd. I hope that ive been helpful and Pm me if you need any help getting motivated on this swap or just getting parts together as i live in GV also

and dont buy the rear coils by the way, not to sound mean but youll probly just kick yourself later. rear 63" chevys go for like $100 at kilroys, and hangers are another 60 plus bushings and bolts, so for under 200 youd be on your way to a decent amount of flex and lift. Add shackles and ubolts/plates, and spring perches for maybe another 100 and your done aside from shocks

Waggy's are pretty common in Pick N pull. They'll probably have a half price day on New Years day too...

Figured I would bring my thread back from the dead. I have got a Waggy 44 brand new gears 4.88 chromoly axles and WFO high steer already set up from a Tacoma that went to 60's . I got a 8.4 Taco rear axle, 4.88 gears from addicted, welded it up(detroit will come with money). I got toyota rear leafs from a 85 runner and added 2 leafs from a trail gear 3" pack, 56" s10 rear leafs with the larger (not main) out of the tg pack (Thanks to webuilt for the leafs). I have ordered the sas from Front Range Off Road. Got my rear spring swap kit from WFO concepts along with my front steering arms. Also got lightly used bilsten shocks front and rear. I am waiting on a tg driveline extention and spartan locker for the front, need to sell some more of the parts truck I have, but that is my update for now.

the brakes get the correct fittings and then hooked up. if you are concerend with that problem i wouldt start the solid axle. there are plenty of tacomas that used a waggy44 same concept. youll have to modify your stock steering shaft so it will go to your new steering box but that is simple. next i agree use chevys out back they have good flex and they are cheap. 44044s will work good. sounds like a good build get cutting and lets see some pics

That is what I got! They are first gen leafs out of a 85 runner that have had 2 leafs that were cut and added from a trail gear 3 inch pack and they should be perfect on the front.

i wouldn't be concerned with a spring being too tall. With putting those springs in a heavy rig, they will settle. If you're concerned with ride height being too tall, pull some leaves out!!! It's that simple, then when it settles and they become too flat, add them back in!! Toy rears can be a gamble, if you don't know what they've hauled in the bed of the truck, either way, you'll figure it out. It all depends on how often you like to be wrenchin on your rig!

I understand that.... Look at my first post's date, I have searched and have figured stuff out and now I am starting to build, my questions were basic and I understand that now.


On another note, I got the sas kit this week, missing my pinion flange and shock hoops but I am starting the cutting tomorrow and pics are coming!

Nothing to exciting today just got the front tacked up, steering is going to be interesting with the yota springs since they are longer than the marlin springs that are reccomended. Got the back all welded up just got to paint it.






And the jeep that I hate to admitt I am very jealous of....
