Shifting our focus onto the rear suspension, but mainly just on these components:
We have already coated the spring plates and you will notice the hardware is the same as the front.
Somewhere along the way of this 4Runner's life, she got an aftermarket exhaust system. The rear hanger for it will interfere with the new shackle hanger location. So we removed the exhaust hanger until we can determine how it needs to be modified.
We then installed the new springs and shackles
And hang the rear axle
We mounted the other two tires and wheels and were able to let it support it's own weight once again.
We still need to check/set the pinion angle and then we can pull it all apart to finish building the rear axle and fully weld the new hangers. But we are happy with the new stance.
