Lifting a 1990 Atlas F22 4dr JDM

Attachment 5127Hi

I have a new to me truck arriving tomorrow.

I am looking for advice of raising the suspension 2-3”

Not sure they even make kits, RC only has for a D21

Looking to put new wheels and larger tires as well

Nothing crazy big, just a little meaner stance

What kind of suspension under it? Lifting leaf sprung vehicles is very easy.

So, it's been a while since I've seen some underside pics, but from what I remember, it was still a torsion bar setup, except the t-bars connect to the UCAs, not the LCAs. Low probability there's a lift kit, let alone t-bars, though. But, cranking the t-bars is surely an option.

It also has a RH-drop R200 (uses same gears as all common low-pinion R200 and C200) and RH-drop TX12A transfer case. So at least that opens a lot of doors to other axle and suspension options if SAS'ing it is a possibility. Rear is an H233B.

Got a pic of the VIN plate? TD27 5MT?

It will mainly be a cruise around town and a support vehicle.

Going from the house 5 minutes away to the marina, I have a boat with detroits and also an M925a2 w/ a cummins there as well.

I'm always hauling stuff and tools.

Suspension, wheels/tires, air system, stereo, extra battery for house bank, roof rack basket with solar panel, inverter, tint windows, look into adding a turbo as well

Thank you

I was originally looking at smaller JDM Kei trucks, then I saw this truck, it just checked all the boxes because of the diesel power.

Maybe go with a body lift and leave the suspension angles all stock. You won't run into all the IFS lift-related problems.
