4" will work, and you don't need spacers to fit v6 calipers. You'll need vented Land Cruiser rotors though.

Why go with 5" lift? My old 1st gen would have just about fit 35's with no lift, after a little 'massaging' with a sawzall and hammer. They all sell 3" lifts too, don't they?

Spacers and super wide tires could be a little frustrating to turn with that push-pull steering box (does it have power steering?).

Spend your money on upgraded steering; clear tires with a Sawzall.

If you use a front drop hanger (like all the SAS kits) and rear leaves up front, you can clear 36's-37's easily (need to upgrade steering first). Tune your springs for flex, not lift. Clear tires/sheet metal interference by removing the offending sheet metal.

Break shit.

thanks guys, i have just never worked with a first gen body before, i wanted to use the minimal lift possible to fit 35's but still have flex, i am not against choppin body at all, but i was goin to try to keep as stock as possible but if a sawsall is the way to go, i will do it, and i plan to break shit, lots of it, when i run out of toyota parts, thats when i trade up to chevy parts, like a v8 drivetrain, and some bigger axles, and i will get the power steering, definitly, and of course put up pics of my first, first gen toy build

I run 35" tires with 4" Marlin Springs. I have plenty of clearance. There is no need for 5" springs. I agree with the post above. I would upgrade your steering first.

I did 44044s up front, properly recentering the axle 35s clear with no problems at all.. The main issue you'll have is full upward deflection in a turn, not if the tires clear the wheel wells.

I have some 4" lift Springs For Sale, Level Match set. $230. Plus $95 in shipping. Ramp at 576
Here is what the Springs will do for you , picture is with 33" 's and a 1" body lift, and 2" lift shackles




If your putting 35" tires, consider some 2" lift shackles and or a 1" body lift.
body lifts help with more wheel clearance without the higher weight of lifting the entire truck, taller springs can be stiffer.
It's all about $$$

I have Marlin heavy duty Tie rod $40.

Your going to bend your stock rod.

if going bigger lift, you better also think about your Drag link angle

You should search and read more


Same Truck but with 36's, 1" body lift, 2" lift shackles, 5" Marlin Rear, AWESOME !, johnny joint-Double Shackles, " 5" Alcan Front Orbit Eye springs, AWESOME Springs !

I think you need to have a minimum 3" lift to clear any crossover steering setup. I'm running 5" all-pros on my 82, but I ran the 'con twice with no bumpstops (retard) and now I think it sits more like a 3 1/2". I actually like the present height it's at right now. I still had to cut the back of my fenders a bit to clear the tires and cut and fold the lip at the firewall. Also, for the rear try to find a 86 and up axle housing. It's 3" wider and helps keep the tires off the frame when you are flexin' out.
