    I'm selling a set of Front and Rear Dobinsons Variable Rate Tapered Coil Springs (3" Heavy). I had them installed for less than a week.

    Hello, I am currently running an OME setup on my 94 Land Cruiser but thinking of upgrading from 35s to 37s, so a little more lift is in my future. I am looking at the Dobinsons 4" springs and ICON 4-6" lift shocks. Has anyone ran this setup in the past or currently? How was the ride, did you...

    80s with 35's - 37's suspension question

    I finally got what I thought was all the parts needed for my 3.5:F - 3"R Dobinson's install and 37s, but now having an issue that I need some direction on. The steering arm (I think that's the proper name) is hitting the radius arms on both sides. Can anyone offer a solution? It's severely...

    Dobinsons 2" Coil Question

    I just installed the Dobinsons 302 Coils on the front of my 2004. The 302s are for stock weight and a 2" lift. I paired them with Blistein 5100s on the lowest setting (yes, I'm sure) and new Dobinsons top hats. My Question is whether it's normal to get 3" of lift on a 2" setup? I'm...

    Brief Review: Dobinson’s Suspension (Stock Height)

    By way of background, I am less than a year into the world of Toyota 4x4s – but like many, have always admired the iconic look of Land Cruisers and British 4WD vehicles. So, when an opportunity came to pick up this 1994 Cruiser with 225K miles on it, in good shape and at a decent price, I...

Recently there has been a few suppliers stepping up to play in the USA 80 series market offering more options. Now with a plethora of...

    Dobinsons 4" Flexi Coils

    Hello everyone! two month ago I was looking to upgrade the rear suspension on my 93 80 series and found out that Dobinsons' springs were being sold here in the US.

    Dobinsons vs. Icon lift recommendations and why

    So I'm in the market for a lift and have narrowed it down to these two. I'm either going to go with the Icon stage 1 or a Dobinsons lift. I am currently running 4x4 labs front and rear bumpers, warn winch and a rear drawer system. I also have a roof rack yet to be installed. Does anyone...

    Made the switch from OME to Dobinsons...couldn't be happier

    When I bought my 94 FZJ80 a few years ago, it had relatively new OME shocks and springs. They were decent, but a few years into ownership, they were torn to shreds and wreaking havoc on my tires and ride and drive quality. Funny enough, the rear shocks were blown out and the front had help up...
