    Hello all.
    I am trying to figure out if the 86 fj 60 cruiser was built on its own platform or if it shares its platform with another Toyota product. The reason is because I am trying to pick up some springs for my cruiser and I can't seem to find any thing besides ome and man-a-fre, and I don't have to tell you the things are spendy.
    Or if any of you know where I can go to pick up leaf lift kit for a reasonable price I would be grateful for the information. I am not looking for a super duper setup I just need something to replace worn out 191k mile spings for my daily driver.
    Thanks

    do a search on ebay for fj60.

    that's where you may find the liquidators selling the ironman/BDS lifts. i got mine for 550 bucks delivered with everything you need including shocks, bushings, ubolts, and the rods to extend steering.

    it's a bit stiff riding and sits slightly higher in back (apparently to compensate for a rear tire carrier) but for $1000 dollars less than OME i'm very satisfied. good quality too.

    It shares the same rear springs as a 70,73,74 series landcruisers.
    TLCruiserman on this site sells Dobinsons .
    Ironman are also available in the US
    HFS (Hell For Stout) and Skyjacker are some US made springs I think

    The OME are really made by Beltons of Malaysia and can be bought under that name sometimes.
