    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...

    Why would a PO do this? And should I fix it?

    1976 FJ40 with about a 4 inch lift (guessing, not sure how you tell). PO added this modification to the rear shock mounts at the top of the shock. Why would you do this? Should I attempt to cut it off and salvage the post and run a die over the threads? Do they make a shock that could accomodate...

    First time breaking something on my BJ70

    Was doing some driving on trails in Northern Michigan and might have hit a bump a little too big in one of the many mud pits I drove through. I'm having the mount welded back and reinforced but I also noticed the shock is almost worn out. Does anybody have good brands for new shocks?

    Are Gabriel Ultra’s any good?

    The Ultras are popular here and are the same price as OEM (20$ each) Does anyone here run them and what are they like? I’m looking for more control over the soft sand and corners.
