The straight axle I got for my SAS is an 83 and I began pulling it apart to get it ready to go. Anyway there weren't any of the cone washers on the hub studs and I would like to have them on there. So are they a Toyota parts dept. item or can a decent parts store get them? Second I obviously am running the ifs rear with spacers on the front axle w/ 4" springs, I'm using the allpro hanger kit that will give me approx 5 1/4" of lift. Should I go w/ normal backspacing 15x8 or 15x10 rims (I'm not using beadlocks). I will be running Goodyear MTR's 35x12.50. Any help is greatly appreciated

Not sure that any parts store would have em except a dealer and they would prob have to order them. I can send you some if you like. What is there like 12 of em? I should have some laying around. E-mail me.

Pretty sure those cone washers are dealer only <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

As for what backspacing to run - I suggest 3.5"

Although added width from like 2.5" backspacing can be nice, I prefer to keep the wheels tucked back in there as far as possible to help with tire/fender clearance issues (the more b/s you have, the more of an arc the wheel swings through as you turn).

I'm running 33x12.50 MT/Rs on 15x8 3.5" backspaced wheels on my 89 4Runner. The rear tires tuck perfectly into the wheelwells, and should clear 35s very well, as long as you keep the rear tire centered when you change springs/lift the sucker.

Oh, and stay away from the 10" wheels. I run trails (lots of rubbing trees HARD) for about 5 hours every weekend with the MT/Rs at 11 PSI. Once you break them in they flex wonerfully even at the relatively high pressure. But stay with 8" wheels unless you PLAN on going wider than 12.50 in the future.

I bought the MT/Rs used from a good friend of mine who ran them under his K5 on 10" wheels. The wheels weren't even tucked in past the sidewall at all. Even at street pressure, with 8" rims you can scrub a curb, tree, or rock and have no fear that the rim will make contact. I don't even thing about using steering the rear tires straight into a tree to push the truck off of it anymore.</font>

Thanks for the help guys, and you are right they are a dealer only item. About 3.50 apiece good guy price and right at 4.00 list. Luckily I found some at picknpull yesterday. That's what I thought as far as the wheels also, it's what I ran on my jeep, but this is my first 'yota and I wanted to make sure.

$3.50 for EACH cone washer!!! That is crazy.
I knew toy parts were expensive, but that is
just rediculus!
I'll make sure I don't loose any of those puppies! geeze.
Maybe 3.50 covers all six for each wheel.
that wouldn't be so bad
