KDSS LEAN ELIMINATOR 2000
$250.00 - $25,000.00
If you’re lifted, and have wheeled, you have undoubtedly encountered some kdss lean. In the 4 years of working with my 2005 GX470 sport with kdss, I have run into this issue multiple times and only Treaty Oak Offroad has the fix.
WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN?!
▪️KDSS is a complete system front and rear, that works in tandem. The driver side has an articulating cylinder and the passenger side has a rigid link, connected to the LCA (or axle in rear) via a large sway bar. They work together via hydraulic lines and accumulators that open and close to allow fluid to flow, or not flow, depending on speed. On a stock vehicle this allows for extended wheel travel vs a standard sway bar setup AND sports car type handling at speed.
▪️when you’re vehicle is lifted, the cylinder extends as the vehicle is raised, but the passenger side can’t due to that rigid link. This is what causes your lean.
▪️Increasing preload, spring spacers, and similar “fixes” available now only mask the issue by compensating elsewhere in your setup.
What we developed, will equalize the pressure in the system via a set of spacers (1 in front, 2 in rear) that are utilized within the KDSS system itself and return the angle of the sway bar back to OEM angles after a lift has been installed. In turn, this will eliminate your lean.
These will be 6061 aluminum, type III hard coat anodized in black, and supplied with black oxide bolts.
these are not compatible with GX460 or 5th gen 4runner, coming soon!
