    Hello All,
    Im new here. Just bought a 1984 FJ60. It's time to do something with whats left of the broken and saggy springs. I looked into different options. I was wondering if any of you have pics of your FJ60's with the BDS 2.5" lift? Also what do you think about it? I would like to have a visual reference on what the BDS looks like.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Adam B.

    Hey Medusa,

    One: Absolutely sweet rig. When I had my 60 I was drooling over yours.

    Two: What roof rack is that?

    I have OME HD suspension. I certainally not what I expected. I had to spend quite a bit of money to beef up the springs so they would not sag. I would recommend Alcan as you can have the springs made as you want them.

    Hey Adam ,
    I put the BDS on my 83 60 . rides like a brick but no death wobble!!! when you order this kit get ALL the bushings 24 in all or you could be driving to Salt lake with a 2.5 inch lift on the front and none on the back and still not find any !!!!
    If I had to do it all over i would spend the extra money on OLD MAN EMU stuff.
    Going to use these springs for the SOA minus a few leaves , there stiff as hell but getting better. :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:
