Is there anything out there on market to cure the cruiser sway/ roll? I have my hardtop on and is on 32" tires and 2.5" OME suspension but all in all not tall but has a almost scary sway when cornering so wondering if there is a fix for this. Mine is a 1983 BJ42 and was just totally restored from frame off.

Thanks
Rob

Hi All:

Remember, a 40 Series Land Cruiser is an example of 1950s engineering. Don't expect this truck of handling like a modern vehicle!

I've driven a FJ40 with the OME suspension and 33X12.5 inch tires for close to ten years and never felt it was too tippy. But, I have also driven the rig quite conservatively, considering the brakes and steering.

Regards,

Alan

yes I baby mine and drive safely as well, has been non drivable for 2 years for restoration but before then had 31" x 15" x 10.5" wide tires and no suspension lift so now I have the tall and skinnies on 2.5" OME heavy suspension kit. I guess the P/S effects it as well for it turns so easy so quick?

Thanks
