    Am curious about the benifits/drawbacks to using the longfield birfs on my axle rebuild and my 60 being on road more than off? Any driving characteristics changes? Prolonged life compared to regular birfs? Any info is appreciated :)

    There really are not any downsides. Since an FJ60 is part time 4WD, the front axle doesn't rotate without the hubs locked.

    I thought about that when rebuilding my axles but decided I want to break an axle first. I think unless you are going to be putting on like 35 and low gears it is an overkill. Sound like you aren't making a rock crawler just a good trail rig. I would spend the money on other things unless money is not any issue. :)

    Goodluck
