Went to look at a 97 today. THe price is right, but it has a 2 1/2" Edelbrock lift kit? I haven't heard about this, only EMU. There's a control on the dash with 4 air lines going to each shock. They are not airbags. My other concern is the rear diff light wouldn't go solid when I drove foward and backed-up. Willit just take a while for the solenoid to "wake-up?" He said It's never been used for off-road, so maybe that's just what's wrong? I need your thoughts. Thanks!
Don't know anything about that suspension, but as for the rear locker, mine took about 400' in a long slow curve on a gravel road to engage when I first got the truck. Now with exersize it works quite quickly. I doubt anything is wrong with it. The actuator is probably working correctly, you must get the dog clutches to line up, thus the need for a curved path on a loose surface. As an after thought: if you don't like the suspension and the price is right you can always change to OME.
Edelbrock carries Eibach springs with their shocks, but no application is listed for Toyotas.
