    Disconnected part found while swapping shocks. Help me identify it?

    Hey there, As my title says, I was swapping/upgrading my front shocks when I found what looks like some sort of disconnected tubing. Just looking to identify what exactly it is and if I need to fix it. I'll attach photos of how I found it and a slightly clearer view. Cheers, Logan

    What diameter shock absorbers better for KZJ78 - 2.0" or 2.5" ?

    Hi everyone, I would like to talk about shock absorbers diameter, not suspension lift value. Are there somebody who has an experience with mid-high range monotube shock absorbers on KZJ78 like King, Fox, Radflo, SAW, Bilstein and so on? It is pretty hard to get good suspension play for...

    Anybody know if these will fit a 100 with 1-2" lift? The lengths seem in line with other offerings. Bilstein website says 5/8" hourglass eye bushing (not sure if that's what we have) and top stem mount. Seeing a few lengths in 2 valving rates... the ones below caught my eye. P/N 33-230337...

    GX470 replace shocks, keep airbags?

    On my '07 GX470 with 105k miles, I am replacing failing OEM shocks with Bilstein 5100's. The shop that's doing it for me is telling me I have to replace the airbags with springs at the same time. Is that true? Is there some reasonable argument why it's better to convert the whole system all at...
