Land Cruiser HZJ79 / VDJ70 / VDJ79 Series
Front Caster correction drop brackets:
This is the best way to correct caster for the majority of uses of the land cruiser when lifted from 2” . Not only will these brackets correct the front caster angle, but they will properly realign the front control arm to the vehicles frame. Why would this be important? Simple, the control arms on an 80 series not only position the axles in relation to the frame, they also transfer acceleration and braking force from the axles to the chassis. This angle or geometry determines how the vehicle reacts under acceleration, cornering, and braking.
Trust us, Toyota spent a lot of time, and money, testing and engineering to determine the correct angles and geometry for the land cruiser suspension. Is this perfect for everyone? No, if you’re using your land cruiser as a “rock buggy” you obviously have other concerns than how the vehicle handles and steers, but for the vast majority of us that use our land cruiser as a daily driver, suspension geometry determines if our vehicle is a joy to drive or a pain in the rear.
These bracket kits are designed to drop the fixed end of the OEM front control arms 4 inches and bring the caster back to stock alignment and into the center of the designed travel arc. Your stock bushings are retained in the control arms. One big advantage of these bracket kits is installation requires no drilling, no cutting, no welding, the control arms can stay attached to the front axle, no press is required, consequently they are much easier to install than any other caster correction option.
This kit is designed to be a total lift up solution for your Land Cruiser.
We can also modify this set to suit your needs with your choice of any parts.
