Hi all,

I am sure this is sort of a stupid question but here we go anyway: I was planning to replace the front shocks on my 2007 fj. Nothing is lifted and so I was going to go with the 4600s... The question is: which coil to use with those shocks? There is one post that says Moog is a bad idea - any other thoughts?

Thanks!

I'm a personal fan of ICON springs as I love them on my truck but their springs are all lifted springs. OME has their 2884 front springs that are good for stock ride height

When replacing springs on other Toyota vehicles that I've had, I was able to get Toyota springs from the Toyota dealer at a reasonable price. Is there a reason not to use Toyota springs? Your originals lasted over 200000 miles. They seem to be good quality.

They have 200K miles on them. I just replaced the rear shocks and coils and it's certainly a nose down situation right now.
The front end on a stock FJ sits about 2" lower than the rear.

If you want it level I would go with the 5100.

Not really any reason - I will check the prices. Didn't even think about it because dealer prices are usually insane.

I think I want it stock mostly. No serious offroading planned but it does seem to squat rather strongly on the front during hard turning which I attribute to the coil shock assemblies.

check online Toyota prices, usually far cheaper than at the parts counter, here are a few examples:

Note that for your online search the spring is different 2WD vs. 4WD (you didn't specify which you have):
4WD Fr
48131-35541 (RH)
48131-35551 (LH)

2WD Fr
48131-35561 (RH)
48131-35571 (LH)
