    i know the runner was intro'd in 84, so when the hilux went IFS in 86, did the runner do it too? this would mean only 84 and 85 for a solid front axle in the runner right?

    Yes, 85 was the last year for the solid axle. First year for EFI.

    '86-'89 were IFS, most(all?) fuel injected, still first gen. I would rather have fuel injection and do an SAS. I sold my 86 xtra cab to buy a 2nd gen runner - four doors, easier for kids.

    If you go with the IFS you already have the correct steering box for Hysteer
