      Try it!! I run just a rear and it’s been no issues to date. Mostly highway miles (about 15k) with a handful of off-road trips sprinkled in. Couldn’t see going back anytime soon.

      The end link is about 1” from the cv boot! But good idea on removing only the ends and folding them temporarily to try. I’m not sure I can easily clear the engine skid plate to remove the sway bar quick disconnects are not available for GX470...

      Just my two cents, I run no sway bars front or rear and I also daily my truck, doing a lot of highway miles when not on the trail. I also ran this setup in my FJ Cruiser. You can definitely feel the body roll with both removed, particularly in...

      Duplicate post…iPhone acting up
    • HomersCanyonero
      I wasn’t gonna do it as a full takeoff at the trail. I’m gonna take off the front st home. Drive it around the city and freeway just to see if it’s okay for me. Go try it in February at the Old Dale Road behind Joshua Tree.

      I remember his advice was keep one sway bar. If you remove both, you better have the next step like anti rock Kai’s videos and measurements really help me see why one option might be better than another. If I just wasn’t chicken 🐔 to remove a...

      @GXO your problems are not the same as us mortals with oem sway bars and stockish suspensions! Lol

      I am still trying to figure out how to have an antirock AND an LRA tank with some frame changes and body cutting but no go so far.

      I bought a Tesla as my daily driver, so the GX470 is only a weekend offroad vehicle now. Yet, I do worry about the 1% chance of having to perform an emergency maneuver when driving on pavement to the trail. Those pavement drives can be 3 to 8...

      My next mod…remove front sway bar!
    • HomersCanyonero
      I’m not sure what part numbers you discovered recently, but it seems like Bilstein modified the 6112 and gave it a new part number. This web site mentions that the old part number was superseded and now you can order with optional HD coils. Call...

      Ah..,i see. The Bilstein 6112 HDs are harder to find. Not as popular as the standard weight ones. But seems like a supply issue now.
    • HomersCanyonero
      I’ve heard good things about the eibachs but the eibachs compete more with the Bilstein 5100 series which are 2” diameter shocks. The 6112s are 2.6” diameter shocks and hold more fluid. Also, have beefier shock leg. More fluid means you won’t...

      I bought my gx470 with the 600 lbf/in coils and one shock started leaking after 5 years and over 60k miles, so I got a new second kit with the 700 lbf/in coils. Front 6112 Bilstein Coilover kit #46-227287 with 600 coils Front 6112 Coilover...

      Mine is the same. It’s lasted over 6 years. I was actually surprised this lasted so long and still holding strong. Multiple iPhones over the years. Also, pavement driving and dirt roads no issues at all. Only when speeding thru a washboard road...

      Simply adheres. Take a second to clean/prep the surface. Mine's mounted just like Homer's. The edges flex to follow the slight curve of the surface. I use this on my Tundra too. Love them.

      HomersCanyonero replied to the thread Iphone SE mount.
      I’ve been using this for over 6 years. I stuck a metal plate that came with the kit on the back of my iPhone cover. I offroad with it and phone doesn’t fall. Intermediate trails too that have rock crawling, Baja 🌵 desert, etc. It’s mounted on...

      Not for tires. It doesn’t have enough power for tires.

      HomersCanyonero replied to the thread OEM Front Skid Plate.
      First, I would replace the drive belt with a new oem one and make sure the tensioner is still good. Second, check to make sure all you plastic liners and rubber engine splash guards are there. Finally, lots of people get rid of their stock oem...

      I wonder if being a SoCal rig all its life helps prolong the life of certain things. PO lifted it and put 33s prior to me purchasing back in 2017 and he did offroad some, but I did replace the LCAs due to torn bushings and worn ball joints so...
    • HomersCanyonero
      I’ve seen GX470s with over 300k miles on original steering rack, tie rods, and cv axles. I offroad medium difficulty trails with rocks, ruts, washboards, etc. I’ve been doing this for 6 years on my 2003 GX470 with 33s and a 2.25” lift. Anyways...

      You re-use the inner rubber boot or get new ones? I’m carrying a new pair of 555 inner/outer/boots/clamp as spares. My stock oem ones are 20 years old now. Should I replace them now or wait for trail damage?

      HomersCanyonero replied to the thread Rear Diff Issue.
      Wait! If you are screwed and you have to rebuild the diff, then spend a little more and get the 8.2” rear axle that’s more robust than the stock 8” rear diff. A lot of people who have their 8” rear diff explode while wheeling…strongly consider...
