  • 100% chromoly constructed Race System offers maximum ground clearance and weighs 10 pounds less than the standard TC +3.5" LT kit.
  • 3.5" extended 4130 chromoly tubular upper arms bolt to factory control arm mounting locations.
  • Upper and lower ball joints are replaced with 1" uniballs for maximum wheel travel and component strength. TOTAL CHAOS includes 1" I.D. uniballs that feature a heat treated stainless steel ball & heat treated stainless steel race for maximum corrosion resistance and component longevity. These uniball's also features a military grade PTFE woven fabric liner that helps prevent noise.

  • Spring rate options offer the ability to customize your ride for your specific application allowing you to custom tune the vehicle for specific terrain or desired performance.
  • Adjustable limit strap clevis' are included so that you can properly limit the suspensions droop wheel travel and make necessary adjustments during the life of the limit strap.

Here is a sweet video featuring @hudson_hall_ sharing a few details on his 4Runner build. Check out that TOTAL CHAOS Race Series Long Travel!

Video:


Hudson was part of GFC's Go Fast Dirt Camp and had the opportunity to put our gear to the test over 1k dirt miles. Nice to see a bunch of Toyotas out Causin' CHAOS!
One question, How do we get invited to the next Go Fast Dirt Camp?

I've got a dumb question, what's the difference between a long travel kit and say... a setup that includes the following?

Old Man Emu said:
- Two (2) Old Man Emu Coil Spring (P/N: 2886)
- Two (2) Front Old Man Emu Nitrocharger Sport Struts (P/N: 90000)
- Two (2) Rear Old Man Emu Leaf Springs (P/N: EL095R)
- Two (2) Rear Old Man Emu Nitrocharger Sport Shocks (P/N: 60091)

The setup you mentioned replaces the factory shocks, leaf springs, and coil overs, but maintains the factory Upper Control Arm and Lower Control Arm. This won't increase your track width or wheel travel, but you will see some lift and a slight performance increase over the factory setup.

A Long Travel System uses longer Upper Control Arms, Lower Control Arms, and Longer Shocks which gives you a wider stance and increased wheel travel. Other components are also extended like the tie rods and axle shafts (if you need to maintain 4WD). A LT system gives you a significant performance increase while keeping the center of gravity low.

Thank you for that, so essentially instead of purchasing just UCA from y'all I should purchase your Long Travel Kit? I'd love the wider stance but I'm not sure if I need increased wheel travel as right now I do not anticipate doing any crazy off roading, especially (with all due respect) to the price.

If you're mostly looking for the wider stance and increased performance but can't spend the money on LT, I'd recommend a set of UCA's, a different coil over shock, and different wheels with a change in backspacing to push the wheel out. You can use wheel spacers instead.

Thanks! I will likely go the wheel spacer route after I get the solid lift parts like UCA (from Total Chaos of course) and a kit.
