Introducing Metal Tech 4x4's newest suspension component, offset lower links designed for the FJ Cruiser and 2003+ 4Runner featuring Currie Johnny Joints. When Metal Tech 4x4 designed their rear long travel suspension system for the FJ Cruiser/4Runner they quickly realized a flaw in the Toyota link design. With the increased suspension travel the links contact the axle housing not allowing for full freedom of movement for the axle. By doing an offset notch they simply moved the bushing to sit higher on the link tube which in turn provides greater clearance between the axle housing and the link.
The offset lower links will not bind at full articulation and vertical travel when used with their rear long travel system and other 2" lifts. Also another benefit to the offset notch is a smooth sliding transition when rubbing up against an obstacle. Links with a standard notch have an uneven sliding surface which can cause damage to the axle mount, while the offset notch allows the link to sit lower allowing full protection against rock, trees, and other objects.
Sold as a pair.
Metal Tech 4x4's offset lower links are made out of 1.75 x .290 DOM tubing, cnc machined to accept Currie 2 1/2" Johnny Joints, poly urethane bushings, 1" DOM sleeve with .25" wall support and a grease zirk for maintenance. All of their links comes with complete hardware kits to mount the e-brake cable and replacement bolts for the frame and axle mount. These links have a limited lifetime warranty on the structure of the link (the tubing and the bushing shell) this does not cover the wear items such as the polyurethane bushings, johnny joints and grease zirks.
