    Stock guard to hub centre dimension

    Hi all. Is anyone able to point me to somewhere I can find stock dimensions for the guard to hub centre on an early 90s PZJ77 or similar? Things are feeling (and looking) a little saggy so I'm going to have a look at having my leafs reset.

    So the previous owner switched the front axle to a FJ60 with power steering. In doing so, it looks like the front driver-side shock mount was cut away and a steel pipe welded in it's place. Today, thanks to DC area highways having what feels like speed bumps in the middle of the highways; the...

    I busted one of my AHC lines on my 07! Anyone have a used take off?

    Hey there! With some guidance from users here and a friend, I was able to diag my AHC system and found the culprit. It’s one of the hoses that comes out of the shock. One of the users on here “MycoManiac” made a very nice offer and idea of sending one of his used take offs. But just in case he...

    Leaf spring eye / loose bushing sleeve

    Recently noticed an issue with the front right leaf spring eye. Notice the gap between the bushing and the spring and how the spring eye has eroded the bushing on the left in the photo. I've determined that the spring can slide laterally over the inner steel tube sleeve that the rubber...
