  1. Suspension / Steering Tech
    I have this suspension installed on my 2016 FJ Cruiser. I have noticed the passenger side has far less clearance between the sway bar and the coil, around half an inch. However I have had no rub even under full articulation off road. There is no scarring on the coils nor the sway bar. I do have...

  3. Suspension / Steering Tech
    Hi, I just bought a 2008 FJ Cruiser. I am from the States but not living there right now. My FJ is in pretty good shape, just getting basic mechanical stuff on point before playing with it. I have some ideas for lifts, need some help if possible. Im looking right now at the Bilstein B8 6112...
  4. Suspension / Steering Tech
    I'm hoping you all can give me some opinions on a couple of suspension upgrade options. I have an '07 4x4. I’m currently running a Daystar 2.5/1.5 lift. I love that the truck is level now and I really like the stance. But every time I leave the road I regret that the truck is much stiffer...

    Hi, I've got Bilsteins on all 4 corners. I will be raising the front 2.5'inches by compressing the adjustable shocks, then would like to raise the rear with 3'inch coils. If anybody has anything please email me at [email protected] or send direct message on here. Cheers.

    Ready to install. I picked up these front springs from a 4x4 FJ Cruiser with about 5k miles on them, had them mounted on the 5100s at the .85" setting (2nd up from bottom) and drove that setup on my 4th Gen 4Runner for about 2 years, put about 18,000 miles on the combo. Pics below. This setup...

    I have a 2007 2WD FJ and I am base in Taiwan. I found a set of new BILSTEIN for FJ. But not sure it would fit into my FJ or not. I think these shocks original for 2010+ The parts number should be 48510-OW060 and 48530-OW040 Should I buy it or not. Thanks.

    I had measure the height of my 07 RWD FJ and the height is about 6cm lower than the original height which is 183cm. Because I bought this FJ about two years ago. I think it didn't change the shocks so I start looking for new shocks and coil spring and I found BILSTEIN 5100 was recommended by...

    I am in the middle of my Bilstein 5100 install (front) and am wondering if the clocking of the spring really matters as long as it is seated properly. I have searched high and low on this site, youtube, etc. to no avail. Thanks for the help, much appreciated.
  10. Suspension / Steering Tech
    So a while ago I posted this thread in order to figure out which lift to put on my FJ. I got a bunch of really helpful advice from you guys and was ready to pull the trigger when I ran into an issue with my sound system. I decided to fix the issue and upgrade the system. As a result I lost my...
  11. Suspension / Steering Tech
    About 1 1/2 years ago I put a set of 5100's on all 4 corners, leveled the front (Notch 3) of my 07 4x4 FJ, and left everything else stock. Over the past year or so Ive been getting a lot of creaking, popping and squeaking from the front end of the truck, mostly on the drivers side, and mainly...

    My Xrea is finally going out on me on my 07 4runner. I'm looking to replace the whole xrea setup with just regular shocks/spring combo. I'm just looking for front and rear shocks. Preferably the 07-09 years but I know I can fit the 10+ front shocks with slight mods. Looking for the regular...
