Hi all, just thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Blake, I reside in QLD and drive a 2003 Hilux dualcab. It's got a 3rz-fe 2.7L, 4 cylinder, it is 2wd and 5 speed manual. Basically I'm looking to do some modifications over time, I've done pa good amount of research on what I plan to achieve. My goal in the long run is to turbo my 3rz, overhaul on my suspension and steering and upgrade my brakes. I want to make adjustments to my drive-line to suit. At the moment I'm stuck on diff centres. I'd like to get a A01B as I have a A01A from factory but it's seeming difficult to find one. Is there other options for a lad centre that would suit? Also I've been looking into lc engineering in the states for performance upgrades, they have a massive amount of parts to suit my 3rz-fe but not so much on suspension or brakes. Maybe because I have an Aus Hilux, not sure. Can anyone point me in the direction of someone in Aus that can help out? *NOTE* On lc engineering's website they have lowering kits for a TAUCOMA? Is this the American variant or a Hilux or a different rig? Any help or advice would be muchly appreciated and i look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for reading. Blake.
I have a 2001 2WD workmate that can't move from a standing start on a wet day. The lack of traction on the rear wheels is frightening, and would be dangerous if I ever needed to take off quickly. Going uphill on worn asphalt I can spin the wheels in 3rd doing 40km/hr. The tyres are almost new; they are not the cause of the problem. I am assuming this is because there is very little weight over the rear wheels, but aside from welding 500kg of steel weights over the axel, is there anything else that can be done to improve the traction of this vehicle? Is there a standard modification? This is a great car and I don't want to have to sell it because of this issue. Thanks Dave
