In 2007 Toyota introduced the V8 diesel engine into its 70 Series model range in Australia. To accommodate the larger engine, the engine bay was widened and front track width was increased, while the rear remained unchanged. The result: an OEM track width difference of 95mm.
The narrower track at the rear causes the vehicle to sway unpredictably when travelling on soft surfaces. This also occurs when the vehicle encounters dry wheel ruts, or edged surface changes on sealed roads. Instability issues are also present when towing, or with heavily loaded or troop carrier vehicles with a high centre of gravity. This presents as a significant safety concern as the vehicle can become unstable and difficult to control under these conditions.
The MDT Tru Tracker is a complete rear track width correction system.
Designed and manufactured in Australia to the highest standards, the components fitted relocate the entire wheel hub assembly to the correct location.
As opposed to illegally offset rims or wheel spacers, the Tru Tracker is fully engineered & ADR complaint.
Installation is completed on vehicle with minimal modification required. The Tru Tracker also utilises many of the existing OEM components.
Toyota warranty is matched on all Tru Tracker components, with the system being available for fitment Australia wide (refer website for details).
