    New option for the rear suspension

    We are new to this forum, but we wanted to show a new build we are doing for our FJ. We are currently making a new option for you guys to chose from, when making a rear suspension choice. Here are some build pics and let me know what you think. We have over 6 weeks of R&D on this. We are using a king coilover, bypass, and bump stop. we are at 15" of rear wheel travel right now, but are making new lower trailing arms, and hoping to be able to get upwards of 17" of real suspension travel. Thanks a lot and enjoy.

    Hollyyy shiit! That's nice. I have to see some action shots of that and then I'm sold -- can ICONs be used? Rough cost estimate?

    We should be finishing up the new rear trailing arms tomorrow, than go testing this weekend. After that we will have a cost. It is kind of an extensive but relatively easy install. It does taking welding to install, and you do have to cut the factory panhard bar mount, and coilbuckets off the frame and rearend. so installation should only be done by a shop with great welding knowledge

    Re: New option for the rear suspension

    My question is does this kit provide more up travel? If so, how is that achieved without C-notching the frame? I see the more down travel with longer lower links. Just curious...

    Jeremy, you want down travel for the fast stuff.. it's just a matter of balancing the ride height

    Re: New option for the rear suspension

    I'm aware of that. Thanks. I was trying to compare it to the MT kit that, as you know, relocated everything down. The geometry is obviously way different here, but the frame and fenders are still in the way for more up tire stuffing
