The height wont really matter. Its your shocks that will be the limiting factor. So if they are 25 3/4 - 26 fully extended measured from center of lower eyelet or bolt up to the top of the lower bushing at the pin top mount on the frame. If you can get that spec before hand then you should be good. Im pretty sure no one really makes anything longer then that anyway for the kdss because no one has been able to pull more then that prior to this part.

Sonoran steel zig zag bar is maxed out at 25 1/2. And any more with that setup the kdss will invert itself. Mine still has more to go.

Can't wait to hear some reviews from multiple rigs. I'll definitely be ordering this with my lift

KDSS Lean?

I went down this path in 2016 after installing Icon Stage 6 and getting some major KDSS lean. I tried all the KDSS tricks like bleeding, calibrating, etc. Nothing helped, still leans. The next step was making extension blocks like these. I couldn't figure out the optimum block height so I settled on 50% of the lift height, 3" * 0.5=1.5" Then I lost access to my CNC and moved it to the back burner. I'm curious about your block height and underlying calculations. Do you think this would fix the KDSS lean? My research and understanding of the mechanism suggest it should help but I never completed my blocks to test it out. By the way, my Icon track bar still rubs. I'm so glad you made this work and are going to sell some. I'll buy a set!

The blocks dont do anything for kdss lean. It simply lowers it 1.25 down.


Edit: dang I just woke up and figured something out about how I can fix the kdss lean. Ill need to mind fit a little more and make something.

This is awesome, I have a sonoran steel bar already, do you think it would interfere if I added these as well? If not im in for a pair.

That’s full droop with extended travel king shocks that measure 25 3/4” from center of lower eye to frame at the top where the pin top lower bushing rest. That’s 1/4” more then what’s available. And if one wanted to, you can run even longer as there still room for the system to swing and doesn’t come close to inverting the kdss system which will basically pull the plunger out the kdss shock.

Ok this my version of how to maximize the kdss equipped 4runners that have a lift and extended travel shocks. I know there’s that Sonoran steel zigzag track bar. But it just wasn’t for me. Plus the tolerances are tight. If you don’t run stock length links or if your axle isn’t in same location as stock, things will crash into each other. I personally didn’t like that , and the look of it. It could also have better joints as well. Totally not taking anything away from it as it’s an awesome idea. It just wasn’t for me.

Originally I was going to do my own version of a bent track bar ( and did ) but when I was test fitting it, a light bulb went off in my head. I got together with a long time friend Don Thuren ( thuren fabrication ) and came up with this. It works like a charm.

Here’s a link to my instagram so you can see a video on it.

Dom R on Instagram: “Here we go.... prototype kdss drop!!! Posting for time stamp while lawyers put together and file the patents. .. This is my fix for the…”

You can now run a straight track bar. Even the stock one which I have on the truck now. With that said I’ll make a straight track bar that utilizes more superior joints then what factory comes with. If you know about factory style bushing / joints. You know that it’s not designed for anything longer stock suspension travel.

This post is for a time stamp!!! Maximize your KDSS + extended travel shocks

More pics

Full droop. Extended travel King shocks


Full bump/
Compression. You can see that it’s still higher then the fuel cell.


Full articulation . Yes that’s a harbor freight floor jack. Don’t hate lol.



Edit
I forgot to post pic with the spare tire to show the amount of room there is. I’m not sure but can somewhat confirm if it looks like there’s more room now with the drop piece I made.

Ride height on 2” lift.


Full droop.

This was my question, I can see the prototypes look 3D printed. Do they require extended bolts?

Powdercoat is definitely more durable than plain anodize, though it will change the dimensions and tolerance slightly. Plus it's UV stable (though you won't really need to worry about anodize dye fading when it's under the truck, away from sunlight).
