This is a similar write up to my previous one on Total Chaos +2" LT. http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/suspension-steering-tech/456978-ifs-crawling-flex-another-review-measurement-total-chaos-2-lt.html
The good old +2" kit served me pretty well, but like i wrote in the review, I was really pushing the limits of clearance to get a good usable travel out of this kit. I was pretty set on getting the Dirt King +3.5" kit. In 2016 TC still didn't have the +3.5" race kit, so Dirt King was the only kit with integrated uniball on LCA. It also had a better price. However I ended up getting the Camburg +3.5" setup from the old forum guru FJNewb. He has very detailed reviews on this exact setup in his build thread, so I won't repeat too much what he already covered. Just come quick pics and measurements.
Note: I have 3/4" bump stop spacer installed to clear my stock fender flares. So I'm not utilizing the full cycle of this kit.
At Full Bump:
My 285/75/R16 just touches the flares (compressed the flares by maybe 1/16").
UCA is far from top of wheel well thanks for the different style bolt and misalignment spacer.
Shock still have quite a bit travel. So if i decided to modify my fender, i can get some more up travel out of this.
The LCA is really close to my 16" TRD wheel. It is literally 1/16 away from a balancing weight block! Gotta live dangerously.
And here is a picture of full bump vs full droop.
You can see tons of picture of this kit at full droop online. But a few quick notes compared to the TC +2" kit:
- UCA uniball will not bind.
- Shock extended length will be the limiting factor of down travel
- My driver side RCV axle is not binding, but passenger side i can just feel some resistance at 1 place in a revolution. I don't know how much i strapped it at, maybe 1" above full droop.
Total travel with 3/4" bump stop spacer
Probably 12.5" total. If i remove the bump stop spacer and modify my fender, it will probably be 14" as advertised.
