New shocks that were mounted but never driven or used. They were on the vehicle x 1 week just to get measurements
(reasoning this happened is the importer for the vehicle needed shocks on the vehicle to get measurement for the radflo shocks, I am not sure why but I plan to make a post about...
I noticed a leak that appears might be originating near the top of the front driver side AHC shock. It seems to proceed down to the location in the second photo.
I've done an AHC pressure test and get 8.1 in the front. I will pick up a 30mm socket and adjust my torsion bars tomorrow in case...
I realize the correct way to measure for what I need and yes I am taking a shortcut but I know somebody has went this very route and has the answer. I have a new never used set of 4" Downey springs that are going on my 79 fj40. I am intending on putting a set of Bilstein shocks with this setup...
I have a complete set of 4 rancho shocks In good working order. According to previous records, this have about 11k miles on them. They feel good on the road and by closer inspection as well. Boots could be replaced.

I filed for social security about 3 weeks ago, they asked me if I had any handicapped children that were handicapped before they turned 22.
I told them my severely brain handicapped son got his present condition at 10 years old, so yes.
SS called his mom in today and explained that the good...
I am looking for the shock wire that turns the engine off, part number and dealer if is possible bj40 12v 1981, I got one from a fj40 but is smaller and then is stock all the time, so now I have to open my hood and move back the air admission manually in order to start the...
Does anyone make front raised lower shock mounts or front lowered upper shock mounts to get all the travel from the shocks after adding front bump stop extensions.
Same question for the rear. Anyone make rear lowered upper shock mounts.
From what i am reading shocks such as Fox, Icon, kiing and the others should be serviced every 40-60,000 miles or so. With the amount of miles i put on my truck i will be removing my shocks every two years or so. Last time i had my rear shocks out i remember one of the bolts for the mounting...
I'm doing away with my old original leafs and double shock mounts but I can't seem to locate my old shock pins. anybody got a pair for a reasonable price? Maybe I can use a bolt? I think I would like to go back to stock if possible.
Getting ready to put OME stock height springs the FJ80 and wondered if anyone knew the correct part numbers for the Tokico shocks.
My local dealer had
48511-69187 - front
48531-69256 - rear
Any other shocks you would recommend for a truck that spends 90% of its miles on asphalt...
This product has been around for over 15years, but has never been properly promoted by me. Originally designed by Downey and subsequently modified by me, the extension brackets allow for mounting a shock 5" longer than you otherwise could with the factory setup while still utilizing the stock...
[I figured I would post this up in tech, since I believe the discussion is generic to different options for installing longer-travel shocks.]
Credit for this idea goes 100% to @Downey. It has been a very long time now, but IIRC Jim originally designed this product in about 2001, concurrent...
I had shocks put on recently and the mechanic said the arm that hold the shock on is rotted (Right Rear). It needs to be replaced. Anybody have an idea of the name of the part or is it something that has to be repaired, etc.
Not a huge deal but just interested in what people are paying the $tealers for new shock bolts?
Just about to do a front and rear shock change on my '03 LC UZJ and ordered some lower bolts in at A$8ea for the fronts and A$19ea for the rears!
We seem to get torn a new one in Australia...
im looking for the front shock upper bolt/pins and the hardware that would go on a 78 fj40. Need to be in good shape looks like I'm a few years to late on oem.
If anyone knows of a vender that sells them please let me know. I've found one vender but they are aftermarket and add up with...
Hoping someone will help me out here.
I need one front shock bushing retainer. The big washers.
There are two types:
1. A flat, concave really, but with no flange or shoulder in the middle.
2. The other has a shoulder to locate the shock stem in the shock perch. That's the one I need.
