I'm getting ready to lif my rig, and I was under it today looking around. What do you do with the brake load sensor? On my prerunner I had to completly eliminate the bastard... :cheers: Was giving my issues. What If I just put a shim behind it to keep the angle the same?:confused:
You talking about the lspv? The best thing to do short of running new lines is to put a spacer on the axle proportionate to the lift height.
That looks like it would do the trick... What about putting a shim behind the actual sensor, so that the sensor to axle angle is the same?
Thats way more work and its still a POS valve that no one really wants.
Im completing the previous owners soa and I dont know what to do with this thing. I put 35" tires on so dont I want maximum brake power? What I mean is, should I eliminate this thing? If so how? I couldnt find a thread on it. Thanks
I just did a suspension lift and left it intact. The problem was the rear brakes didn't seem to be doing much, so I disconnected it from the axle and wired it up. Braking is much better now. I don't get why Toyota added this, my BJ60 didn't have it, nor my HJ60. I was just on a road trip and thought I was traveling light, just me, my two kids, a few tools and my ARB fridge. For yuks I drove across a scale, 5800lbs. I need all the braking I can get!!
OK, I have 33 x12.5's, a winch c/w bumper and a roof rack, but I wasn't camping. I can't imagine my weight when actually loaded, c/w trailer.
The premise of the valve is a good idea, to change the amount of rear brake power depending on how heavily loaded the truck is. More rear axle weight = more rear brake power.

The problem comes from it's narrow range of adjustment.
