<IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0"> I have heard a lot of people telling to fo with a solid axel. I just don't know how to go about looking for one of those exactly. What is the advantage? How does it lift a truck more than a suspension lift? How much does it cost?

What exactly is this SAS that everyone talks about everyone once in a while? I'm very new the whole beafing up a suspension or any part of the underbody of my truck. I'm getting so frustrated anymore I'm about to sell the darn thing, but I love my truck to much to get rid of it. I'm just really frustrated because I don't have any around me that knows anything about toyota's and really doesn't know anything about the 3.0 EFI engine that is in my truck.

I'm reaching to yall in hopes that I don't delete my truck. I wanna keep it, but need help making it more the way I want it to be, but time and money are always an important issue. Being 19 I already have 3 different payments a month, so please try and be patient with me...Thanks to everyone for the help...CHRIS

I did the sas on my 86 4runner and it was by far the best way to lift my truck. It doesnt take rocket science, I went All Pro and spent afortune (and wasnt to happy with the spring hanger) but after that I helped 2 other guys do it for practicly nothing and only 3-4 days of work.

I suggest that you wheel with it a few times and try to follow a few SA rigs. You will see imediately what we are talking about. Not that you could not go where they went, but at how much easier they make it vs. your rig. And basically if you SAS it, you will lift it and it WILL be a suspension lift. Don't dispare, a majority of us on this board have little money but make do with what we can. It is very important to make friends who also enjoy the sport beacuse as you will find out they may have stuff you need. Better yet, they may have a talent you need like welding or some type of fabrication skill. Just remeber, what comes around goes around. In other words, should they need your help you better step up to the plate and be there for them too. So enjoy the rig and wheel it every chance you get. Money will come by at times you least expect it and then you can change it to your staisfaction.

First off you have to decide what kind of wheeling you will be doing, then you can build your truck to fit your wheeling style. If your just cruising to the slopes on the weekend and driving through deep puddles just leave it stock.. but if you plan on flogging it hard and bangin stuff around in deep mud or rockcrawling you'll need to convert to cross-over for flex and durability. Also working on your off road driving skills is of major importance (like you didn't know that!).Welcome Toyota brother!

you found the right place <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> How weird. My name is Chris, I'm 19, and I also have a '92 pickup with a V6. <IMG SRC="smilies/cool.gif" border="0"> Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about your truck.

do a search for VA guys. I would bet there are a few of em here.
We all are poor if we are 19 or 90. We on this board do things the cheepest most effective way possible. As for your Q's go get any axle off of any toy (or chev but thats a different SAS)79-84 some leafs out of the J-yard (many styles tried and true here) of your choise and then drill a few holes and have someone with a torch come and hack off the IFS and weld up an little of this and get a few of that and walla.
Newbie learn this FAST..... Use the search mode at the top of the screen. type in one phrase and get lots o responces. <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> pirate salute and welcome aboard.

Holy Crap!! <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> I see what you mean about confused. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> Start out by putting some dents in that sheet metal. You'll know your truck is on the right track when it starts to look like this:
