Important Vehicle Specific Notes and Recommendations

1. Gen. 3 4Runners had a wide variation in ride heights and fender flare styles from the factory so determining the amount of lift available from your front coilovers will depend on the model year and configuration of your particular 4Runner. Filthy Motorsports and King shocks ship their coilovers preset for the ideal mid-shaft ride height for the best overall performance. The coilovers should not be pre-loaded more than an extra 1/2" of lift at the tire and setting the proper wheel alignment after the installation is critical.

2. The front suspension geometry is very tight with about 7.5" of wheel travel leveraged to about 4" of movement on the coilover. This leaves plenty of room inside the coilover cylinder for King to run an internal reservoir (IFP), yet it also makes the suspension very sensitive to ride height positioning. For the best performance, the coilovers should be set at mid-shaft plus or minus 1/2" compared to stock height. For added movement, an aftermarket upper control arm (UCA) can be used to allow for an extra 1/2" of down travel when the coilovers are built with the extended travel option.

2. DO NOT use coilover pre-load to lift the vehicle over 2.5" to 3" of lift. Even at those heights, and aftermarket UCA and differential drop is required and the tires must be properly aligned to retain good ride quality. The factory geometry works best at about 1.5" to 2" over stock and lifting it more than that puts the CV shafts, steering linkages, tie rod ends, and control arms at steeper angles which reduces ride quality significantly and causes those components to wear out faster. For these reasons, if you want more than 2.5" to 3" of lift AND excellent performance, you will need an aftermarket lift kit that drops the lower control arm and front differential.
