    Spring Over Axle on the FJ (SOA)

    I have read a lot on here about the Spring Over Axle. The majority list it as one of the top 5 mods for the FJ. I also know people that have done many and say that it made it ride worse and they switched back. My question to the crew is... why do you all love SOA? Is it just the chassis...

    New Truck, New Things to Fix

    So I recently purchased a 89 FJ62 and had two questions that I needed some guidance on. 1.) The previous owner added a SOA lift on the truck but had blown shocks and failed to re-add the sway bars. My question is, what's the good/bad of just adding new factory shocks to the old mounting...
