Sky Manufacturing has released our newest USA made Toyota Suspension product!

The new Toyota-Chevy Drop Link Shackle Leaf Spring Conversion Kit.



Sky Manufacturing has been asked for a while about producing a drop-shackle system for our popular Chevy Leaf Spring Swap (TOY-CSP-001). After 3 years of testing prototypes from simple factory stacked shackles, which fail due to weak material, to much more complicated options, we have produced a cost effective, functional and strong kit to do exactly that.

This kit converts 79-95 Toyota Mini Truck (Hilux) and 95-04 Tacoma rear leaf springs to popular 62" Chevy leaf springs.

Drop-style shackle with internal anti-inversion stop allows extra drop and more suspension travel, with less sway caused from longer shackles utilizing stock shackle hanger location, sometimes up to 11 inches in length.

Less shackle hanging down to hit obstacles in the rear also helps avoid bent springs, broken drive train parts, and generally getting stuck and holding up the trail.

Depending on how used the donor springs are and leaf pack of 3 plus overload or more, 3-4.5 inch's of lift will be obtained. Generally front hanger will need moved forward 9-11 inch's depending on model of vehicle. The most accurate way to determine exactly is measure stock springs weighted on both trucks. Determine axle pin position and then set spring mounts accordingly. 

Kit fits Chevy 2.5" wide 62" long springs, with bushings these are 3" wide overall, and use a 9/16" bolt on the shackle, with a front hanger that is 1/2" pilot, hardware included if a 9/16" bolt is needed.

Kit includes: New front of rear leaf spring hanger, New HD shackle mounts, drop link shackle kit, and hardware to install springs.

Kit requires welding, relocation of suspension components, and general suspension geometry knowledge.

This kit has been used on Toyota leaf springs, it requires shimming the rear shackle 1/8" and moving the shackle hanger forward approximately 4.5" from stock.

For added comfort we recommend a set of our low profile poly bump stops to keep shackles from slapping frame. Find them in the "Add-ons" tab above!
