One kit does two Radius Arms
Designed to fit GQ and GU
Patrols with coil front, the Radius Arm Spacer Kit is primarily used to ‘push’
the front diff forward (approx 10mm) to give better clearance for larger tyres
so they don’t hit the front mud flaps and guards. Another common issue with the
Patrols is for the standard radius arm washers to bend following excessive
impacts, which can result in premature failure of the arm. Bigger tyres also
generally means bigger shocks with longer travel.
This increase in travel can
put additional stresses on the rear radius arm rubber bushings, causing them to
distort and become dislodged. The High Tensile Radius Arm Spacers, being
stronger than standard, resist bending and aid in radius arm longevity. The
Radius Arm Spacers are also designed in such a way as to ‘cup’ the rubber
bushing, preventing it from being dislodged, resulting in improved bushing

It is recommended that you
check the clearance from your diff to your Panhard rod before and after fitting
the Radius Arm Spacers.
Panhard Rod and Diff Pumpkin run very close on some Patrol’s depending upon
other suspension work that has been done to the vehicle. Pushing the diff
forward with the spacers can result in the Panhard rod making contact with the
diff or the front of the radius arm, affecting the articulation of the Panhard
This can place additional
stress on the Panhard welds and brackets, leading to premature
