Cree's 2000 Limited Thread

Well, build thread #2. The frame on my SR5 decided it needed to go on an involuntary diet and shed precious metal near the lower control arm mount, so he we are. Which, amusingly, is really where I wanted to be all along. Obviously it's a Limited, and it's a factory locker truck.

I'll be sure to update. I had the 231s on my SR5 and I always felt like the pedal was a bit soft ssn's that the travel sucked, even after a few power bleeds.

Busy few days. Everything minus sway bar links is on hand, so I started ripping into it yesterday. I LOVE what Toytec did with these shocks. Hopefully they ride smooth.

I'm hemmed up on a welder right now, but I had a Toytec panhard bracket laying around, so I tossed that on for the mean time. Fresh brake job rounds out the rear. Found a burnt up ABS sensor, so replaced that as well. 891s with no front lift sure makes it look line a Rat Rod!

where did you get that top mount bracket for the rear shocks? Id like to add that to mine. would make installing rear shocks so much easier.

The clevis came with the shocks from Toytec. I don't know if they sell them separately or not.

You can’t just add that bracket to standard bilstein shocks meant for a 4runner. I believe those shocks are Tacoma shocks with that adapter so they are compatible with the 4runner mounting location at the top. Correct me if I’m wrong @Cree

I had them with the 8” Bilstein 5125’s I bought from Toytec that are not model specific since they are eye mount style, not stem mount style like 4Runners use. I could never get the adapters to stay tight, even using the lock washer they come with. Lots of people run across this issue. Ymmv.

Edit: They are sold separately as well if you wanted to buy some.

You are correct. Double eye instead of eye and stud.

So the T100 booster and MC are MOSTLY a drop in job. Thought I'd sneak that stuff in before it sits 5 inches higher in the front. Had to pull a couple extra lines out of the way to get the bigger booster to drop in place. Also had to rebend both brake lines. Reservoir is a direct swap. Be sure to measure where the pedal clevis sits on the old booster rod. I measured from the base of the booster out. Should be a good starting point at least. On to the front suspension!




Also, little Carolina squat action on the parts truck.

Since Murphy is a Dick, I'm still working on getting the front buttoned up. Passenger side is all done minus the OTE that I didn't plan for (pro tip: always plan for them).

Added some SS lines from Wheelers while I'm at it. I think this thing will stop. How well is the question.

Well. It runs, drives and stops. However, the ABS is very unhappy. I don't know if it's a system issue or if the upgrades don't jive. I never really liked it anyway so I'll just shut it down.

Pedal feel is amazing. I'm stopped in the first third of travel. Probably bottoms around half. Didn't try it yet with the sway bars unhooked so I'll have to update on emergency stops later. Good weekend worth of work though!

im not sure what the sway bars will do in terms of braking. they reduce left/right sway of the vehicle body on turns.

Nothing. It's just squirrelly as hell with out them and I don't feel like doing a max power stop without them, in case it decides to pull or something weird.
