The recommended specs are given by the alignment shop or dealership. I currently don't have that info on file. Now, each corner is rated at 1/2 of labor so its 2 hours of labor at a standard shop rate of $75 should yeild $150. You should be able, depending on your drop, to get everything back into OEM spec.

Sweet... thanks alot man! I got about 1.5” drop I think… never really measured the before and after, so I can’t really tell. I used to work at a Toyota dealership for a few years, so the alignment guy is actually my buddy... hopefully he'll hook me up!

Now, I saw on their website that they were selling "special tools" to go with the parts (obviously they cost extra)... but are they really needed if I’m taking it to a shop?? (is there some sort of drilling involved to install the back pieces??)

I might really give this a try before buying my new set of wheels… the ones I have now are almost done on the inside with more than half of the tread left on the outside!

DS2K, I am in the same boat as you. My tires are just about dead. As soon as my new wheels come in, I'll have the rear kit installed. As for the special tools, according to the directions provided, all you need is a carbide rotary file.

The quality of the pieces are up to par with OEM and everything has a lifetime warranty. There have thus far been no failures with any bolt kit made by SPC.

So these just replace the OEM balljoints and cambers?

Sorry for the newbie question, I am completely clueless when it comes to suspension parts.

PM if you have any of the following:

VVTI 2JZGTE - found
W58/R154
spare headlight LENSES (the lenses need to be in good or excellent condition, I'm looking to swap these into mine and do a retrofit)

But you are 100% correct. These are replacements that have further travel than the OEM ones.

I'm dropped two inches and have no tire wear issues and, except for a recent happening, have had no issues getting my car into alignment spec. for the past 2-3 years. You don't have anything to fix/replace a broken frame-side mounting bracket on a rear toe adjustment rod, do you? The bracket that's actually part of the frame where the toe rod connects to.

That would be an OEM part, we do not have anything to alleviate the problem with this.

I will be ordering a set this coming week. I'm thinking of buying a set of wheels and tires, but looking at my tire wear now I need to correct this before going any further. I'm dropped with S-Techs.
