INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS 1. Park the vehicle on a level surface. Check the vehicle height from side to side and front to back. This is done by measuring from the ground up to the fender using the hub as a centering point. 2. Apply a thin coat of grease to the polyurethane bushings and insert into each eye of the new front springs. Now apply a thin coat of grease on outside of bushings. This will help you to insert the bushing into the spring mount. 3. Raise the front of the vehicle and support securely with jack stands under the frame behind the front springs, and block the rear wheels. Remove the tires, shocks, u-bolts, and loosen the sway bar bolts. (Caution: the front axle will now be free to move, so support securely on floor jack.) 4. With a floor jack supporting the axle, unbolt each end of leaf springs and remove from both sides. (If new shackle bushings were purchased, grease and install them in the frame at this time.) Install new front springs, part # 8041. When installing the front springs that the fat part of the shim on the bottom of the spring pack should be pointing toward the rear of the vehicle. Notice the tie bolt in the front leaf springs is not in the center of the leaf spring, but there is a long end and short end. Install the springs with the short end towards the rear, and long end towards the front bumper. Do not tighten spring eyebolts at this time. 92756702 64-80 TOYOTA LANDCRUISER INSTALLATION

Be sure the tie bolts align and fit into the tie bolt holes in the front axle housing. Install and tighten new u-bolts. Torque u-bolts to 75-90 ft.lbs. 6. Install new shocks and tires then lower the vehicle to the ground. Tighten spring eyebolts at this time. NOTE: The drag link that goes along side of the frame from the gear box to the bell crank may require slight bending for clearance of the new shock. Bending this drag link will not affect it, but do not kink the bar. 7. Raise the rear of the vehicle. Support securely with jack stands and block the front wheels. Remove the tires, shocks, and u-bolts. (CAUTION: the rear axle will be free to move, so support securely on a floor jack. 8. Apply a thin coat of grease to the polyurethane bushings and insert into each eye of the new rear springs. Now apply a thin coat of grease on outside of bushings. This will help you to insert the bushing into the spring mount. 9. With a floor jack supporting the rear axle, unbolt each end of the rear leaf spring and remove from both sides. (If new shackle bushings were purchased, grease and install them in the frame at this time.) Install new springs, part # 8042. When installing the rear springs the fat part of the shim on the bottom of the spring pack should be pointing toward the front of the vehicle. Notice the tie bolt in the rear leaf springs is not in the center of the leaf springs, but there is a long end and a short end. Install the springs with the short end towards the front and longer end towards the rear bumper. Do not tighten spring eyebolts at this time. 10. Using a floor jack, lower the rear axle down to the leaf springs. Be sure tie bolts align and fit into the tie bolt holes in the axle housing.

1. Make sure you park the vehicle on a level concrete or asphalt surface. Many times a vehicle is unlevel (side-to-side) from the factory, but usually not noticed until a lift kit has been installed which makes the difference more visible. Using a measuring tape, measure the front and rear (both sides) from the ground up to the center of the fender opening above the axle. Record below for future reference. (Note: Due to OEM inconsistency and the available options, the amount of lift gained by this lift kit can vary as much as 1/2″.) Driver Side: Frt______ Rear______, Passenger Side: Frt________ Rear________ 2. Apply a thin coat of grease to the polyurethane bushings and insert into each eye of new springs. Now apply a thin coat of grease on outside of bushings. On SYSTEMS with new rear springs, insert steel sleeve into rear spring eye. Rear spring eye is on the long end of the spring. To Install Front: 3. Raise front of vehicle and support securely with jack stands under the frame behind front spring shackle and block the rear wheels. Remove the tires, shocks, and u-bolts. Care should be taken when removing the front u-bolts because they will be re-used on 3″ kits, not on 3″ SYSTEMS. (Caution: The front axle will now be free to move, so support securely on floor jack.) 4. Remove the anti-sway bar bolts. Remember the arrangement of the rubber bushings and washers. Loosen; do not remove, the bolt attaching the track bar eye to the bracket on the driver’s side of the front axle. This will allow the front axle to drop down easier. (When installing a 7″ kit, remove and discard the anti-sway bar.) 5. With a floor jack supporting the front axle, unbolt each end of front leaf springs and remove from both sides. Install new springs as follows: part #T303S springs can be installed with either end toward front; part #T305S and #T307S must be installed with the thick end of bottom degree shim toward the front of vehicle. (Note: Do NOT tighten spring eye bolts at this time.) Using the floor jack, raise the front axle up to leaf springs. Be sure tie bolts align and fit down into the tie bolt holes in the axle housing. Install front u-bolts. 6. On 3″ and 5″ kits bolt up sway bar using the longer bolts and spacer tubes provided, and using original bushings and washers. Do not over tighten making the bushings bulge or crack. Tighten track bar bolt. (See Photo #1). 7. On 7″ kits remove track bar bolt from bracket on driver’s side of front axle. Install new track bar bracket onto the original bracket with the included bolts and nuts. Attach

1. Park the vehicle on a flat level surface and block the rear wheels 2. Lift the front of the vehicle with a jack and support by the frame using jack stands so the front wheels are off the ground. 3. Remove the front wheel and tire assemblies form the vehicle. 4. Remove the nut from the tie rod connected to the pitman arm and disconnect by striking the side of the pitman arm with a hammer or carefully using a pickle fork and try not to rip the boot. 5. Working on one side at a time. Disconnect the lower shock mount. (This is an ideal time to replace the shocks.) 6. With the axle well supported unbolt the two U-bolts. (It is not required but always recommended that you replace the old U-bolts with new ones.) 7. Lower the axle supporting the axle with a jack, to allow proper clearance for removal and installation of new springs. Be extremely careful not to over extended brake lines and abs lines if the vehicle is so equipped. (Note it may be easier to remove the brake caliper and hang out of the way. Never allow the brake caliper to just hang by the brake line.) 8. Now remove the front and rear spring hanger bolts and carefully remove the old leaf spring. (Note an assistant on the removal and installation of the leaf spring may ease the process and prevent injury due to the weight of the leaf packs) 9.Install the new leaf pack and hanger bolts leave hardware loose at this time.(It is not required but always recommended to replace hanger bolts with new ones) (Note Loosening the shackle bolt so it moves freely will ease spring installing.) 10. Raise axle up and line up center bolt with the center hole on axle. 11. Install U-bolts and tighten evenly so they are all equal lengths protruding through the U-bolt nuts. 12. Reinstall the lower shock mount and tighten hardware. 13. Repeat steps 5-12 on the opposite side. 14. Connect the tie rod end back up to the pitman arm and tighten the nut up securely. 15. Install the wheel and tire assemblies and lower vehicle on the ground. 16. With the weight of the vehicle on springs now tighten all the hanger bolts. 17. An alignment is recommended when changing any front suspension component
