It looks like Ford front radius arms in
the rear and also I see a bar running
across like a steering link. I bet he
has rear steering.

I'd almost bet that the rear bar you guys see is a panhard rod(bar). It locates the axle from moving horizontily. Very common on rear coil setups, and since those airbags look like they are in the same place as 2nd gen 4runner coils, so is that bar???JMO

Try looking around at 4wdonline.com

It seems like kinda a slow site (even on my cable modem <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> ), but there are pics, etc from Australia on there. Maybe someone can luck out and find some tech info on this truck...

Kong's 4x4 in Phoenix is cutting the coil suspension off of 3rd gen. 4 runner. maybe you could buy the stuff and put it in yours.
