      One thing I really appreciate about the IFS on the 100 is the spring rate can be tuned, increased or decreased, with a few turns of a wrench.

      Seeing as I don't plan on adding weight to front or back I'm thinking ill add new rear springs and see how that changes things.

      I added used torsion bars from a non-AHC LC to my LX after I added the bumper and 90lb of winch antilevered off the front of the frame. I may have been able to torque the torsion bars far enough to level th pressures, but the bars were available...

      ylexot replied to the thread Leaf Spring seat question FJ60/FJ62.
      Resurrecting this a bit. Was looking for info on 63 spring seats and shock geometry. This was helpful. For the question about stock ride height, for one of my 60s I took it down to a spring shop and they reached the springs and set it back to...

      Long overdue update. Took some time to shop for parts, research, get more parts, work a bit, hit a snag, buy more parts and/or tools... just to say, while progress has been slow I haven't been idle. Once I got the rear axle reassembled with...

      @LazarusTaxa, saw these on CL. (Not affiliated) It's a bit of a haul from Bend and they may be 40 series, but perhaps worth a call. https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/pts/d/frazier-park-toyota-land-cruiser/7409313491.html

      First time I’ve seen this one around the neighborhood. I saw a dune beige one as well but couldn’t get a pic.

      Ah-ha. The blue inserts just snap in from the outside. They can also be pulled out when needed. I'm a little curious if they get brittle after a while. I have had these in for several years and haven't lost one, but you can see a couple are...

      @Nightbrew, not sure I completely understand the open channel question. The extrusions are open on the ends. I used Square nuts inside the channels to thread the bolts. The nuts bite into the inside edges of the channel and all you to torque...

      It’s been a while since I’ve posted. This is a life update more than anything else. I worked from home for 16 months or so during the pandemic and really enjoyed it. My employer called everyone back into the office in April. I reluctantly...
