    Is this shock too long?

    So I am in the process of replacing the front shocks on my FJ40 and have switched from OME that we’re 20 years old to some Bilsteins. I took the old shocks to the shop and we measured them and ordered Bilsteins of a comparable length. The OME have a steel cover so I never saw how much shaft was...

    Are these shackles to straight up and down?

    Sorry for the dark crappy phone pics, 1st is the rear and 2nd is the front. I have the SOR Extreme shackles with I believe 1 1/2" of lift and was wondering if that is what is throwing off the angles? Also any suggestion on stock or OME shackles? I have a set of Dobinson springs.

    So my FJ60 was getting a tune up and the mechanic told me I have an intake leak, which is entirely possible. He quoted me 17 hours labor to check to make sure the head wasn't warped and to replace the gasket, is that high? I said, "17 hours, am I paying you guys and you're going to have me do...
