Want to do do a shackle lift but having trouble! #1106463 09/02/21 04:19 PM

Need a Spot
Gen 1 SWB 5mt 2,4l

My biggest thing is I cant find the correct shackles for this project. Pretty sure I need the front shackles from a 1984 toyota truck, but looking online I see nothing. And because I am in Colombia it is hard for me to source the part from a dealer or have them fabricated.

*Edit* : maybe there are other shackles options, i read about drop shackles ir "comfort shackles" any options for these for the gen 1 swb?

I also have another couple questions about this lift project:
Does switching to gen 2 UCAs help anything when lifting ~2 inches?
Are there any front diff drop kits? Is it even recommended?
Will my brake lines be long enough?

thanks for any help!

Shackle lift could be accomplished with parts from Oz, UK, or Philippines.

Something like this: L200 Shackle Kit

Or, you could use later leaf springs from the Pajero Sport / Challenger Sport / Montero Sport models (however named near you) and have about 25mm lift and better ride than the OE and older leaf springs.

Wow great info! So if i look for the triton/l200 shackles, am i looking for some that are extended for a lift or stock sized ones will give me a lift? And what year triton has shackles that will fit?
And while i have you... How do i find shocks that will allow me an extra 2 inches?

Your existing shocks will be fine, only so much suspension travel to be had without going full custom.
