Hi just wanting to know if I will need to put extended cv shafts in my 2012 KUN26 HILUX if I fit a 3 inch lift kit. I'm aware and have got the upper control arms, front diff drop down kit, but unsure as to knowing if I will also need extended cv shafts as well, some places say yes some say no. Cheers for any info it help

Hi John and welcome! :thumbup:

If you lift is 3" how much is the diff drop? If the difference is small then no extension of CV shafts is necessary.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
