      2 inch is about as much as you can go but you will need to deal with http://www.lcool.org/technical/90_se...t_fouling.html

        Cheers stevo for the heads up this is what I have been worried about so if I did a 2 inch lift would I need to change anything else?

          I don't think so they been over 100k since I got the prado the bloke that put the first set of lifted shocks on mine that were on it when i got it didn't cut the bash plate I didn't know about that until I ripped the grease nipple off, the cv,s seam to take the extra angle for a long time

            oh i have a 1999 model as well , i bought it with a lift 2'' . im about to put spacers 1"' in . from what i have seen under mine for the last two years i havent experienced any of the above damage mentioned , but also the above damage mentioned , is not saying how high it is . it seems much higher than a 2 " mi thinks .. Not 100 % but i think.

            so if a 2" lift is all we can go ,what im about to do is not a good idea???

              If you all ready have long shocks I doubt you'll get the spacer in. As for the uni hitting the sub tank bash plate, drop the rear right wheel in a hole so its off the ground is how I ripped the grease nipple off so I could really enjoy being bogged to the axles.

                  Tonz im not 100% sure but I was also told if I went anymore then 2inh I’d have to put longer brake lines in not sure if this is going to affect you
