Hey! Iím having issues with my 2000 t4r, just installed this 3Ē rough country lift. Came with front strut spacers rear shocks and springs, installed everything with no issues and aligned perfectly fine, I noticed a substantial amount of rake and hoped that it would settle over night, check this morning and saw it was sitting about the same height, any ideas on whatís wrong?

Purchased 3" RC Lift

I put the 3" lift on mine with Freedom Offroad UCA's. I'm having weird issues with the LCA and LBJ at a very strange angle. And my alignment cannot sit right (about +2 camber and caster at about 1.3). going to make a post about this soon and see if anyone has had this issue. Not sure if it's a lift problem, UCA problem, or install issue really.

Too bad to hear about the issue. My brother is looking to get them for his new 4Runner project. Guess it is better to go OME. He's selling his Wrangler after we finish installing the last mods and the soft tops from 4Wheelonline next week. Hope he can wait to have a better budget.

I purchased the Rough Country 3Ē lift kit with the front struts & spacers as well as Rear shocks & springs. I also got the FREEDOM OFF-ROAD UCAís that have the Upper ball join. These are supposed to correct the angles that change when this lift is installedÖ

I am having issues with my sway bar hitting my tie rod ends and Iíve just noticed a torn tie rod end boot. I got some spacers to drop the sway bar down a little but I think I need longer sway bar end links maybe?

Also Iím wondering if I need to get some different control arms perhaps longer?

Sort of different question. Changed most of my front end components during this process due to the high miles. 250,000mi made it hard to justify putting these things back on knowing that they were all in the well used range.
Anyways I replaced both front axles in this process and after nearly 1500miles of driving Iíve looked under there to re-assess things.
I have found the axles have a gap between the INBOARD JOINT TULIP and the differential. With the wheels off I can using only my hand strength, I am able to create some side to side movement of close to 1/4 inch of play thereÖ Iím thinking, this is not up to factory specs. Any input to the questions Iíve brought up summarized below will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time in helping me with these puzzlers

1) needing longer sway bar end links w suggested place to find them.
2) needing upgraded/ longer rear control arms w suggested place to find them
3) Front Cv axle situation.

If you can't afford it, should you be spending the money at all? Just save up for a better lift.

1)Look up Mike Studt on here. He makes some bomb proof sway links. Or you can buy my set I have from him (there his first gen production). I don't use my sways anymore.

2) If you're 2wd like OP just get rear control arms off a stock 4x4 4runner as they are longer than the 2wd ones. That will be your cheapest and likely to correct your driveline situation you may be experiencing post lift. If it doesn't or you're already a 4x4 then use Rokmen or OptOffroad for extendable rear arms. IF you aren't having driveline issues after the lift don't mess with rear arms as this starts to change your diff flange and driveline angles and will cause vibrations. SO if you don't know what you're doing and don't have issues...don't touchy.

3) there is the ability to move the CV's by hand to some degree. How much I can't recall as it depends on many factors... vehicle put together and on the ground, on jacks with wheels on, on jacks with wheels off, on jacks with suspension parts loosened...etc

Did you fully seat the CVs when installing them? If not you'd be leaking diff fluid...

There is some play in the inner joint/sleeve, the boot actually restricts excess play because the inside needs to move in and out freely. I don't run stock CVs but 1/4" total (1/8" per side, play) may not be excessive.

Yes you need extended sway bar endlinks if you lifted 3" front and back. You also need an extended rear brake hose.

You can move your front end links to the back and either buy 1st Gen rear endlinks to install up front or buy aftermarket extended, like Mike Studt's, Opt Offroad sells them for $190 a pair
