Much thanks for the report!
Didn't really notice any decrease in noise levels, but honestly hadn't paid close enough attention (or measured dBs) beforehand to be able to notice.Thanks for the write up! I've got the OME 2+" lift, but didn't know low lift crossover steering was an option. I'm currently waiting for some parts to correct torsion rod angle, new torsion rod bushings, and a sway bar quick disconnect. I'll have to make a crossover setup part of my long term plans, definitely more work than I've got time for right now.
Did ditching the torsion rod do anything for in-cab noise? I've read it transmits a lot of vibration. Have you ever measured decibel level in the cab?
Thanks! It's always good to hear positive reports on the GFC. The wait is long, but they are doing a really good job of constantly making improvements in their manufacturing process and shortening lead-times for such a young company - they moved our production date up by a whopping 8 months recently! Still have to keep reminding ourselves "good things come to those that wait."Awesome build. My girlfriend's aunt just put a GFC on her Tacoma. She loves it. Plus it looks great. Crazy how long their backorder is (about year now)!
Yeah, it was really the only solution still out there without increasing lift. Has worked flawlessly so far, dispite our OME front springs showing some sag after 70k miles.nice to see someone using the Aqualu steering arm again. I think Jack Alford was the first person to use one on a mini truck in ~97-98. I ran one for a couple of years as well. Great solution for low-lift vehicles.
*headsmack*... others have even used a saw-zaw...
