most toyota dealers that aren't idiots can do it. that and they're more knowledgeable about alignment.

or an off road shop.

it's pretty straightforward.

you won't get sag with a light bar, and it'll even handle a lightweight bumper without too much sag.

you won't need an alignment if it didn't pull before, but i got one because it was a year and over 20,000 miles since my last one.

i just ordered them from toytec but on their site there is no account tracking. do they just email you or does it just show up at the door? assuming you used them to get yours. good i hope it dosnt cost to much.

toytec doesn't have tracking, but if you give them a call on a weekday they'll tell you what's going on with your order.

Does not work that way; longer springs = more lift. You will need different (longer) coils to get more lift in the front.

Yes, or at least close to it.

Yeah, the 883's will give you around 1-1/2" of lift over stock in the front. If you decide later you want 3" of lift over stock you'll have to get longer coils than the 883's.

hey were did you get your bumper from. that thing is perfect.

I thought dealer shops would not install anything that might/will void the warranty or alter the vehicle. The 883's clearly modify the FJ.

This is good to know because dealers have more at stake in terms of customer service if something is not installed correctly.
