Thanks! I appreciate it! I still definitely have still a lot to learn, before i pull the trigger suspension, just want to be sure i have all my bases covered before i make the leap.

Cheers!

For those interested they are a STEAL right now...

Toyota 4Runner 2003+/Lexus GX470/GX460 Nitro Gas Suspension Kit - Stage 2

On sale for 1039, but use coupon code (THE-IRONMAN-CALVARY) and it drops to 883...

Wish I would have waited on buying 5100's cause I think this would be a much better suspension upgrade

whoops... that's not the pro version

However, coupon code still works and brings the pro version down to ~1350.

Why does the stage 2 pro come with the sway bar relocation brackets and the nitro stage 2 does not?
I'm leaning towards the nitro's since I will mostly be street and fire road driving.

The Foam Cell Pro shocks are so large, the sway bar is relocated slightly forward to ensure there is no contact with the Shock body. The Nitro Shock is slightly larger than OEM, but does not require the additional clearance. Unless you are hard core off roading or want the adjustability of the Nitro front coil, I recommend Nitroís.

I wanted the Foam Cell for when I am camping and have it weighted down in the back. We run a lot of forest roads at high(er) speeds so hopefully the FCP will keep the shocks cooler. But yes, it depends on use and all that. I don't hardcore off-road too much but do carry weight when camping.

For those of you that have been running the Foam Cell Pro's anybody install them on Non-KDSS with aftermarket skid plates? I noticed on their site that a swaybar relocation kit is required, I was messaging with someone on the ironman site (the phone always goes to VM) and they mentioned that for Non-KDSS its a replacement bracket (only moves it forward not down) vs. the KDSS version which is a plate that is sandwiched between the existing bracket and frame. Can someone please confirm that this is the case?

If so, do you know far forward it is moves the swaybar? My concern is that the swaybar will make contact with the skid and I dont think i can add spacer to mine (Artec Belly Pan).

Thanks!

Do you want me to take a picture of the sway bar and factory skid plate? You can get an idea of how it sits.

THANK YOU!!! This is so helpful and greatly appreciated! It looks like it may just work, fingers crossed. Now hopefully they still have stock left.

Thanks again!
