    Was in an accident in 2008 FJ, went and bought a 2010 TT. Wanted a 3 inch lift on the 2008, still want one now for clearance purposes. My main goal is an all-around weekend warrior type build that drives well as a daily driver but can also go up what I throw at it. Is it worth messing with the...

    This is the original Toyota front and rear shocks and springs for my 2008 FJ which I only had on for a year (20k miles) before I upgraded to a lift kit. It also includes the front UCA's (Upper Control Arms) and one just needs a new ball joint. I am located in Santa Clarita, CA and I'm selling...

    I just installed a Demello bumper on my fj and I'm now starting to look more into getting a lift and maybe some new wheels/tires later on. Right now I have the 14' Trail Teams Bilstein suspension with front and rear reservoirs. Obviously it rides amazing and is great on the trails, but I want...

    Hi, I'm selling suspension parts that I upgraded shortly after purchasing my FJ new in 2013. These parts have been stored indoors ever since. I don't recall exactly how many miles these parts had on them before I upgraded, but I can estimate 2500'ish miles. The parts include the following, and...

    Can someone please tell me if there is a polyurethane (graphite infused preferred) free floating bushing on the market for the OE Upper & Lower Rear Control Arms of a 2013 FJ? Any info would be great. I've been scouring the internet and made numerous calls only to find replacements for the...

    Hi all, Shopping for suspension kit for my '07. Had a stray thought, can't find anything on the web so thought I would try posting to get broader scope. Anybody ever heard of someone REMOVING an Icon suspension to install another brand? I have seen plenty of people that tried to save...

    Since I have no interest in selling my FJ I decided to do some upgrades to it. Currently it has 65,000 miles. :cool:

    Yes. It's a Storm Trooper themed FJ build... Thanks for tuning into this build thread! A little background... This is the first FJ I've owned and I've had it for just over a year now. I came from a lowered sports car and knew little to nothing about the offroad community. I knew I wanted...

    This is a thread documenting my rear long travel setup. If the Metaltech long travel kit is long travel, then my setup is going to be "super" long travel. Don't get me wrong, the Metaltech kit is great, you get an 11.5" stroke shock that is bolt-on, reliable, cheap, and works well with 35's. But...

    Hello All, I have a 2011 FJ cruiser with 2.5 icon coilovers and icon tubular arms with uniballs. I decided after 4 years it was finally time to get my icon shocks services and uniballs replaced with delta joints. I have successfully removed everything except the tapered bolt that goes from the...

    hi all, I would like to lift my 2wd 2010 fj about 3 inches. I am not sure if I need to change the suspension, get an extra spacer lift, or get a 4x4 axle to put in the front to make it look level and am looking for some direction. I would like to do this purely for cosmetic reasons... I mainly...

    Hey All, this really isn't my forte, so apologies in advance for the layman type question. I have a squeaking news coming from my suspension, specifically when I go over a bump, brake, turn corners, etc. It's pretty annoying, yet not effecting the drive. A buddy who works at a tire shop said...

    Searching for some new tires. Anyone know the largest tire size you can fit with a 2.5 inch lift and body chop? Thanks

    Hello. So I have had icon stage 1 on my Fj Cruiser for about 4 years. I had to rebuild it about a year ago and now one of the coilovers is leaking some weird fluid. It has worked great off road but has always ridden stiff as hell on road. I have heard many people complain about the Icon...

    While this thread is mostly self-serving, I know it will be useful to others who are noobs at working on their vehicles as well. A lot of what I assume will be discussed here is already covered piecemeal in other areas, so I anticipate frequent inter-forum links and references. But the topic...

    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...
