New silicone radiator hose kits for 3RZ 3VZ and 5VZ

The New Silicone Radiator Hose Kits will provide your engine with a one-of-a-kind advantage in performance and style. These kits are dual layered, combining high-grade silicone and heat-resistant embedded fibers which will provide exceptional and efficient heat reduction and increased pressure tolerance, giving you peace of mind and years of satisfaction.

The radiator hose kits are a direct OEM fit for all engines listed. The 3RZ kit is for manual transmission only. All of our silicone hoses are 3 ply polyester reinforced construction with a temperature range from -20º to 350º. The advantage that a silicone radiator hose has over a standard rubber radiator hose is that the silicone hose can handle much greater temperatures and they are resistant to ozone exposure, oil, and other engine fluids and electrochemical degradation, which means that silicone radiator hoses last about five times longer than a standard rubber radiator hose.

Silicone Radiator Hoses are high gloss, black in color, and are shipped with stainless steel hose clamps. This is one upgrade that you cannot afford to miss.

Torsion Bars and Torsion Bolts

Toyota torsion barsToyota torsion bar bolts and nuts

If you want to lift the front of your IFS truck or 4runner a set of heavy duty torsions are a needed componant. We have had good results using these torsions with upper ball joint spacers and a 1" front differental drop spacer to achive over 2 1/2" lift in the front.

  • Manufactured from premium grade spring steel with a resilient powder coat to protect against corrosion
  • Precision drawn, dropped forged ends for optimal strength and integrity
  • Pressure rolled splines for precise fitment and increased spline durability
  • Hardened and tempered to exact specifications for improved performance
  • Preset and hardened to prevent sagging and increase life cycle
  • Stock torsions 22.8mm the the HD are 23.4mm

When replacing the stock torsion bars with the heavy duty torsions make sure that you have a set of the torsion bolts and nuts on hand to change out. These bolts and nuts are not going to be a common part and almost impossible to find in a pinch. Due to the strain on the bolts and the use of air tools these bolts usually have damaged theads. LC Engineeing has a kit that will help make it a sucsessful install.

The top picks for new products

1st place - "Robert Perez how about a way to run oil temp and pressure gauges, like a sandwich plate, for the 1st generation 1grfe."
This is an excellent idea on a newer vehicle application, which is exactly what we are looking for!!! Thanks for the suggestion.
2nd Place - "John Mariah Weyer Short shifter for a 1987 4X4 22R."
We have been trying to make one similar to our other style short shifters and it won't work on those applications but we are currently working on an alternate design for all the 4wd 20R/22R/RE/RET applications!!!
3rd place - "Jason Paulson I would like a silicone hose from the intake tube to the throttle body on a 1987 22re for the LC Pro Intake Kit"
We are already working on getting a custom hose made!! Good suggestion!
