Baja. Local clipped us. Not bad, just said f it and didn’t bother with that can of worms. It’s paid off anyways. Front tires are rub rub rub At full stuff. And the good old shit ground clearance Toyota blessed these minivans with.

I need spindle gussets, upper arm double shear, and cam bolt tab gussets. Also am considering bypass secondary shock up front. It’s a daily for the wife so long travel prolly won’t happen.
Any opinions on running a secondary shock with oem replacement Kings? I know it won’t be any extra travel but that extra dampening would be neat. Back end handled amazing. Kings and king bumps are bueno

There’s one person here that’s ran stock length arms with secondaries and has had 0 problems.

Somehow got mine in 3 days. And the fronts were in stock at sdhq. Waiting 7 months for a 50$ savings isn’t worth it lol.
I think there may be supply chain issues with specific parts. I emailed ADS yesterday and they have almost all the parts but they are waiting on a vendor to supply something, then my shocks will be built. But i did do a "custom" order with compression adjusters and specific angled fittings and stuff. I ordered my fronts from headstrong and have received no contact from them yet

My brother is a VP of Inventory for a national auto parts company. He said the supply chain for his vendors is so fucked right now. There could be 99% of a product ready to be packaged but they are missing a $.10 part before it is 100% complete and ready to be packaged and shipped. There are places that have warehouses full of shit that is ALMOST ready to be shipped but can't because the ports are backed up and there is an order of 10,000 little bushings sitting in a container on a ship ready to dock...

Liberty Mountain Fab mentioned a couple times on Instagram that it's mostly finish stuff like ceramic coatings and anodizing. Orders for uncolored stuff can be weaseled through a bit quicker and also why a lot of smaller companies like Radflo and ADS that use smaller companies for it have such shorter lead times. I'm betting a lot of it is supply on stuff from china too since that lines up as well and king is getting hit the hardest lmao

http://instagr.am/p/COX305YAuwl/ How much of this rollover is lack of shock damping and body bounce? Vs how much is unavoidable on that line?

It's the second truck I've seen roll in the past month that was bouncing like a kids toy before going over.
Is that lone star Toyota jamboree in TX? It's 90% Dallas yuppies who dunno how to wheel.

Looks like the slider (body panel?) Catches that lip and spins him around. Then top heavy vehicle becomes rolling rock due to the angle.
