So Id like to do some cheap lifting on my montero, and have been searching here, to find out I need the daystar seqoia coil spring spaces.

1)What is the part number for the spacers i need or what year seqoia will fit with the 95 montero?
2)Is ebay the cheapest place to get a pair?
3)Is this something the average guy can do?

Thanks

You could buy my custom springs in the for sale forum for 75 bucks plus shipping and get a whole new spring.

[color:"orange"] Check with Hazy_Daze for part number on the Daystar spacers. He has gotten them for a couple of folks on the board.[/color]

2)Is ebay the cheapest place to get a pair?
[color:"orange"] Unknown[/color]

3)Is this something the average guy can do?
[color:"orange"] I'm probably below avg and was able to install them by myself[/color]

Thanks

the Rancho number is RS70081. I ordered them through my work at NAPA. I had a guy at a four wheel shop look them up and these were cheaper then the Daystars. I have a Gen I with the Gen II coils in already. I put these in a few hours. Here's what I did.
1. Put the truck on jackstands and put jacks under the axle.
2. Removed the tires.
3. Unbolted the sway bar from the axle
4. Unbolted the shocks.
5. Unbolted the panhard bar at the frame.
6. Lowered the axle down (Warning: Watch the rubber brake line.)
7. Remove the coil and take off the rubber pad off the top of the coil.
8. Put on the spacer.
9. Cuss like a irishman while you are putting the coils back in.
10. Nurse your sore knuckles and put everything back together.

I had difficulty in reattaching the panhard bar. It was off by about half an inch or so. I used a combination of jacks and prybar to get it to go back. I would recommend a longer brake hose if doing this. I also used longer sway bar links to keep the bar level. I used a 38417 brake hose and a 265-1323 NAPA sway bar kit. Just had to cut the nipples off the get a nice fit.

Thanks very much for the information, those ranchos seem to be the same price as the daystars though.

Thanks everyone for the help, I think coil spacers+torsion bar is the cheap route im gonna take for some lift

Could you not use the coil spring compressor tool to save some aggrivation?

The compressor tool isn't needed. Simple/easy enough to disconnect the rear shocks as you raise the rear and lower the axles. The springs will drop out and there's enought room to insert the springs with spacers.

Depends on how high you can get the truck up. The stands I borrowed were tall just not enough for my purpose. So I had to massage them back in a little. And the trailing arms were still bolted too. I'm sure it would have been easier if I had loosened the nuts a little cause I couldn't get the truck that high. All I needed was an inch more. I'm sure the jackstands sunk a little in the damn dirt driveway. I might also add I am using longer shocks too. 80-96 Ford Bronco's. Cause I haul wood at unreasonable speeds over bumpy roads, <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I am using the NAPA Gas Grande's. We'll see how long these last. I blow out the weannie stock style one's in under a year and the RV's about year and a half. Haven't blown the fronts out yet though.

Jack stands?

Chocked the front tires securely.

Disconnected the pan hard rod.

Used a pair of hiLifts on the rear bumper to raise the rig, then used a floor jack on the rear pumpkin to lower it down (after disconnecting the shocks) then raise it back up after installing the springs.

We did have jack stands in place underneath just in case.

Was pretty straight forward and quick.

I've only got the one hi-lift and it don't work so well on my uneven driveway. My other truck is getting Gen II coils in it soon. I'm going to cheat and use my friends garage this time. It's a little nippy here now and it's got heat, tools, lights and t.v. No fridge though <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />.
