LSPV Rebolting Idea-Any reason why I shouldn't do this? #820641 06/22/07 05:55 AM

I'm halfway through putting a 3 1/2" lift on my truck (3" springs, 1" over stock shackles) and I'm to the point of dealing with the LSPV. I was thinking of doing the arm/turnbuckle trick, but as I was under there today I noticed that the top mounting bolts on the LSPV are about 3" from the bottom bolts-could I just reposition the LSPV by bolting the top mounting holes into the bottom frame holes? Seems like this would avoid having to fab or buy a new bracket. Would there be any danger in having 2 bolts holding it in instead of 4? I can't think that it would be under much stress.

Getting the Wheeling Fever
I think it sees a fair bit of stress. Mine was actually limiting droop on my rear axle before I cut it off and zip tied it up.

I found Front Range Off Road Fabrication's manual proportioning valve (same as Summit's, but with metric adapters) to be lightyears more effective than the LSPV. Solves several problems!

And yeah, Toyota put 4 bolts on there for real reasons.

How hard is it to fab an extension, it is a flat piece of stock with a few holes drilled in it.

Try welding threaded rod onto the axle mounting side.

Thanks for the advice guys, guess I'll fab up a plate or try zip-tying it off. I want to replace it entirely, but it might be a while till I get a new valve!
