Your only options are to use shorter shackles or move their hanger forward.
Once you do this, you will immediately notice the following:
- Improved ride
- Smoother suspension cycling
- Increased droop / down travel (pending the spring rate)
Increased compression / up travel
- Increased brake stand (apparent brake dive)
- Increased wheel hop
- Increased pinion wrap
- Increased squat when loaded
- Accelerated spring wear
Don't take the negatives at face value because they really aren't negatives, they only seem negative because you don't have your suspension set properly. They are normal characteristics of a leaf sprung rear axle. Therefore, the benefits will reveal themselves to you like a knight in shining armor. You'll wonder 1) why you never did this sooner and 2) how you ever managed to live with your harsh riding and minimal travel suspension.
BTW your Runner looks cool
The 2nd gen 4Runner is my 2nd favorite style
and it's white which is undebatebly by far the most superior automobile color.
