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 dramatically reduce or eliminate your lean.
These are 6061 aluminum, type III hard coat anodized in black, and supplied with new hardware..
*while we have had fantastic results reducing and eliminating lean, due to the nature of the KDSS system it is still possible to experience some lean. A proper kdss balance and the use of our spacers are the best option for maximizing wheel travel, while minimizing lean.
