Custom lift kit

I need 6" lift. But we don't have super lift here in Thailand.

So. Lets just make it happen.

almost 2 weeks already to this point.




the key is to keep torsion bar in the same position, so we need this link from stock position to new place we drop.

This will show how I plan to connect T-bar and lower arm.


all welds work you see is just for marking position we will complete them after.

It's not done yet! lol Those are tacks holding everything in place from what I can tell. Where exactly is the torsion bar located on the truck? If it goes into the upper arm like a Chevy, I'm pissed!

When you drop the differential and the lower control arms, the spindle, or knuckle in 4x4 world, needs to be addressed. It's too short. So, he added spacers to fill that gap to reuse the stock knuckle. Something that I find a little sketchy.

Superlift and RCD do it in the same manner by dropping the lower control arms, but they include a taller knuckle.
