Iirc, the GX has a similar front suspension to the taco and tundra. If you lift it 2-3 inches it will destroy the upper ball joint and limit down travel with a stock upper arm.With everything going on in the economy, the wife and I are wanting to wash our hands of our payment on her 2016 4runner. We're not even close to being upside down, but regardless we want to get rid of it.
I picked up a REALLY nice GX470 this week that I've been trying to buy for almost 5 months, problem is that it needs a paint job (factory defective/peeling paint, seems to be common on alot of JDM vehicles from the era). Thinking about just doing a bed liner finish, done alot of research and I think I'm going to go with raptor liner, product seems to hold up well with good prep.
Wanted to ask mainly about lift kits. Why is it some kits (2-3 inch range) come with new upper A arms and some dont? I would figure with only 2-3 inches camber wouldn't be effected enough to require new a arms?
Here is what I suggest:
1. Upgraded lift coil over from Camburg, TC, etc
2. Upper arm from Camburg, TC, etc.
( I am running a uniball arm but that may fail state inspection if you have it on HI. It is also exposed so it may rust. )
3. Knuckle gusset
4. TC eurathane rack bushings
