I just came across this video series from Kai at Tinkerer Design. I found it educational and entertaining. I'm not looking to change my suspension set up at this point, but this could prove very useful for anyone in the market:
I’m swapping out my front coilovers on my ’07 FJ and want to go with Bilstein 6112s. I’m seeing 3 different part numbers on different vendor websites, bilstein’s website, and threads in this forum.
With how popular the 6112 setup has become I’m hoping some folks can weigh in on which setup...
Hey all looking for front suspension, noticed Ironman 4x4 was having a sale, around 630$ for their front struts, assembled and shipped.
PART NUMBER: 12710GR-CKFJ
Anyone know of similar deals from other manufacturers, preferably pre assembled ?
About 2 and a half years ago, we got my wife's FJ cruiser: an '07 6 speed we named Filthy Frank.
After driving it all over hell's half acre and back and falling in love with the FJ cruiser, I knew there was only one car I wanted for a reliable daily.
Yesterday, we finally unlocked the...
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...
Been an FJ owner since 2015.
Read tons of threads on this forum since that, but haven't ever posted. Going to finally contribute what I can since I'll be doing some modifications.
Orderd a Smittybilt M1 front bumper
Ordered a Winch
Ordered bilstien 5100 to compensate...
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...
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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...
