1990 Toyota 4Runner SR5, 4WD, 3.0 Liter, 6 Cylinder, Automatic

Front:
Bilstein shocks
Sway A-Way 25mm torsion bars
low profile bump stops

Rear:
KYB Gas-A-Just shocks
Downey Heavy Duty Coils
ProComp Panhard drop
Daystar 1.25" spacers
JAOS Mud Flaps (red)

Rear End:

I have Downey coils with 1.25" Daystar spacers and the ProComp panhard rod drop bracket. Reason why I went with the ProComp one is because it gives a 4" drop. The Downey one is a 3" drop. With a Hi-Lift jack and a few other tools in the back, the bar is almost parallel to the ground. On longer trips with more gear, the rear sits perfectly. Downey coils come with the LSV and ABS wire relocation brackets and a longer rear stainless steel brake line. The Daystar spacers are made of polyurethane and are a perfect fit. They come in different colors like other polyurethane products. KYB Gas-A-Just shocks are in the rear. Part number KG5561. Fully extended, they are 24.48" and compressed at 15.35".  Photos of he rear suspension can be found below.

Front End:

There's not much that can be done to the front IFS to yield more travel. I have installed low profile bump stops and Sway Away 25mm torsion bars and Bilstein shocks.  I have also tried Rancho RS5000's, RS9000's, and KYB's up front as well in that order before settling on the Bilsteins.
