After securely placing the 4Runner on jack stands and removing the rear wheels, we also removed the rear coil springs so we could cycle the rear axle up and down and determine the best mounting points for the limit straps. Running the straps roughly parallel with the shocks turned out to be the best packaging. One more thing to check: you need to be sure that the limit straps don’t bow outward into the wheel during compression. If they do, you’ll need to figure out some sort of tether that keeps the straps from hitting the tire. We’ve seen everything from zip ties to coil springs to bungee cords used for this purpose. In this instance, tethers weren’t needed.
