Re: Overland Warehouse/Radflo install and review

Even if you were slamming the axle... if the spring perch were a bumpstop that would do MORE damage (bending) than would the frame bumpstop since it's farther from the wheel. There's more of a bending moment from the perch to the wheel than from the frame to the wheel...

Re: Overland Warehouse/Radflo install and review

I'm seriously considering this lift.
I've looked at overland and toytec and toytec is quite a bit cheaper, though the kit is not 100% radflo.

Still debating if anyone wants to sway me.

Re: Overland Warehouse/Radflo install and review

Overland has the valving set up pretty specific to the weight of the FJ . I think customer service on both fronts is outstanding . I am really happy with the way my truck handles on and off road. I cannot say I have any ride experience with Toytecs version. I think Overland has a exchange program for when your stuff needs rebuilding.
that's all I got
thanks

I hear Radflo is nice; however, I have never ridden in an FJ with the setup. They definately have more pedigree than Toytec with all the racing shocks they produce. Toytec is a bit stiff and I hear they have squeeking problems (Although I have heard the same thing about the Icons - which I have never experienced with mine).

Re: Overland Warehouse/Radflo install and review

As said above please note that OW kits use specifications designed by OW and shocks build by Radflo, i.e. we had the kits build to OW spec by Radflo, vs using the standard spec. The result has been a great mix of off road control while maintaining on road comfort.

Also as you noted we use matched rear Radflo shocks with the front COs, to give the best balance front to back. Additionally we use our own coils on the rear and different coils on the 2.5 COs.

So while the coilovers are produced by the same great company, there is a huge difference between the kits front to back and top to bottom.

On top of that we include US48 shipping in the price, and offer the CO adjustment wrench free to forum members (so pretty much what you see is what you pay to your door - unless you need to pay sales tax).

(As a side note we even use a swivel hook wrench for ease of adjustment vs just a stamped hook or pin wrench some others may use. Once you have used and other coilover wrenches you will appreciate the difference).

I hope this clarifies the differences between the kits.
