okay im not sure if im on crack cuz i think a while back someone told me that if you take parts off a porches suspension and combine them with the toyota IFS you can actually get some flex.

I believe that the Porsche constant velocity joints are used from a 930's series Porsche. They allow for more travel and can handle a lot more HP!

I ain't no Yota guy but from all the campfire talk I've heard, you're much better off spending your $$ on a solid axle swap. By the time you finish swapping the porsche joints in you've spent big $$ and you've still got IFS. :D The solid axle swap will give you more flex, cheaper parts, and (depending on what axle you use) more strength.

FWIW, Scott (the guy who owns RockStomper and the one who help pioneer the porsche / IFS thing) runs a solid axle in his trail rig now.

IMHO, etc.

Yeah what he said.

Yes the porsche CV joints have more available travel, but you're not gonna be any better off unless you run some aftermarket A-arms and related components. The stock a-arms dont have anywhere near enough travel available to max out your stock CV joints, unless of course you've removed the bump stops :D.

If you're going to do an SAS anyhow, why bother with the porsche joints? Just wait it out, it'll save you time and money and with the money saved, you can get your SAS done just that much faster!

yeah i dont think i will bother with the porche joints. i thought it might be a "cheaper" fix for flex for a while untill i got my SAS done. Ive never done a SAS so i think i will try it myself. Does anyone on the board do or know someone that does them for cheap?? Cheapest estimate i got so far was 700

What do you get for 700?

Hy-steer alone is gonna run over 1000. I think the most expensive part of doing an SAS is all the other goodies you need. Like new gears and tires now that you have so much lift.

why would u need gears! u need them trust me. in my 85 toy with a 5 speed, i went from 31's to 33's :eek: holy ****, i couldn't even spin the 33's at all in gravel in second, in 2wd but with 31's they would spin easy. with 33;s and 4:11's its tollerable. and when i do it again. its 5:29's lockers f/r and 35's:******* but its ok just kinda slow, and ****s your clutch up a bit
