Ke20 strut upgrade for max 4x4ness

Recommended Posts

Is there any Toyota strut that will bolt into a ke20 and raise the ride height but still allow me to retain factory brakes/hubs ?

/  anyone got some OG struts   that haven't had the guts replaced with an insert?       dodgy  re-valve   plus weld on schrader valve for that nitro  compressed air charge

@Dudley  wants to give you money for them

I wonder if you did that and put some diesel in the shock and sealed up the shock valving , and do a jump 

Would you get a really good rebound?

This sounds like a job for strut spacers.

This guy knows what's up.

maybe put some oxy in instead of nitrogen.

 

bit more travel would be nice.    but some more compression damping  while retaining the lack of rebound  should make it fly and land like a trophy truck.   Its borderline that already, so with some minor tweaks...

Turns out it still had the og shocks in the struts.       pulled  one of them apart.  found they have a  stopper on shaft to limit extension travel.    chopped that off and welded it back on 40mm lower.  did some super janky shaft re-polish.  they were leaky anyway so whats a bit more.   also "machined"   the little spacer plate on compression side of shocks. to effectively make  bleed holes on compression side smaller.   so  will have who knows how much more compression dampening,  along with 40mm more droop for those hectic  jumps. 

I want to add a second shock on the rear that only starts working at  last 1/3 or so travel.  so its like some kinda amazing redneck hillbilly   bypass shock

Cool when can we book it in? I assume working brakes won’t be necessary ?
