Re: IFS Lift
Depends on what you want to accomplish. Most lift kits contain a bracket to lower the front differential and a set of control arms. The rest is from cranking up torsion bars. You don't gain as much ground clearance this way, and you certainly don't gain much wheel travel. When it's all done and said? You're better off buying one of these kits instead of making one.
The other option is to do what Toyotas have been good for. Make longer control arms, move or beef up the torsion bar mounts, create better shock mounts, put in better CV joints, etc. By the time you're done with that, including rear springs, you're looking at about $2000-$5000 for a lift kit...
