I have a new GFCV2RTT currently on my 5th gen and it works great, interested in moving it to my 93 80. wondering if anyone can give me their experience with one installed on their 80 with factory GFC 80 mounts. ? is the wieght added to the roof noticible in a negitive way. did it effect MPG...
I keep going back to the age and type of rig your running, even if you have the best shocks/springs money can buy, perfect tire air pressure combo every nut and bolt gone thru your still in a 3 ton 25yr old rig that was not designed as a pre runner. I have driven 1000s of miles in baja and local...
great looking arm, how much are they shipped her to US? what deg of correction do they offer? I went with the superior standard arms and have had great results. got them in 1 week no excuses and great CS. just could not wait on Delta, I have had my share of problems getting Delta products.
solid steel, again very heavy only concern is unsprung wieght and now the arms are so strong something else might break i.e. mounts in an impact.
I am out on the boat this weekend, when I get home will take some pics. not to exciting but here is a pic I saw online with the arms not my truck.
one note on the OEM bolts though, I did reverse the bolt on the frame side by the CAT. not enough room to get it out easy without going in or out on an angle to clear the CAT. mine is a 1993 might not be a problem on other years.
I saw that and yes its looks really really nice.. I would need to drive one 1st. never been a fan of the 3 link unless its for rock crawling. great flex for sure.. I mostly do more pre running style driving fast through the desert and always though the 4 link looked stronger.
I was thinking cutting arm mounts and rotaing the axle with stock arms would be a good way to go. you can still buy stock oem arms from Toyota and get them in a day or two along with plenty of used ones. you would be able to set it up perfect based on your suspension and load, just need to have...
update on arms,
after hearing 4-8weeks to get arms built from Delta which was my 1st choice, my race car fabricator said he could build me a set but that would slow down the other parts he is building for me so decided to give Superior Engineering from AU a shot.
I had a couple of emails with...
truck is looking good.. was looking at your planed options and saw you want a 2.5" lift.. whats your plan for caster correction? I am going thru it now with a dobison 2.5" lift and my caster ended up at -2.8deg and is not fun to drive over 50mph.. caster plates seem like an easy quick way to go...
Thats good to know.
for sure one of my concerns ordering from AU. Supperior said they have a set in transit now as well as black hawk but you never know..
thanks for your info on shipping.. one more reason to go with DELTA
this question was simple is anyone running Black hawk or Supperior radius arms and what info you have on them.. JMAX is another company's radius arms I am interested in.
not opinions on oem arms caster plates how strong alum is over steel.
start another thread for all that stuff. this is why...
count me in for one of your caster tools.. not sure I trust the align numbers the shop gave me. the springs from dobinsons were only supose to be 2.5" front and 2" rear.
after install with stock bushings and radius arms -2.8deg caster.. I did not check pre lift caster.
were you happy with the...
I had seen that thread, what I read into it was Blackhawk is saying is you should end up with +3.5deg after a 3" lift. going to try and pm the guys that were waiting on them and see what their thoughts are.
I need to correct aprox 6deg of caster on a 2.5" lift. slee not making them anymore and delta 8 weeks out.
two companies I am looking at as alt is BLACKHAWK and SUPPERIOR does anyone have these on their 80's? and how are they working?
