Hello all, Get your and ready, this is a long one! I am fairly new to this site and have only had my 1975 FJ40 since fall 2008. I am trying to learn all I can but I'd like some input from some more experienced owners! So far, I have only done a few little things here and there to the cruiser to make it safely usable, fixing lights, turn signals, replaced a couple switches, etc. One of the first things that I would like to upgrade is too add power steering......stock steering has WAY too much play for my liking, and city parking blows! I have read and heard about several different options and opinions as to which is the best, most cost-effective way to add power steering. The problem I am having is that I know that I want my next project after adding power steering to be lifting the truck slightly to be able to fit 33-35" tires (has 31" now)........obviously, several options exist for lifting the rig and more decisions need to be made, SOA, or just a spring-shackle-shock kit, shackle reversal or no shackle reversal, "handling kits" , etc...right?......so, here is my question: ....WHAT IS THE BEST COMBINATION OF POWER STEERING UPGRADE AND SUSPENSION MODIFICATION / LIFT METHOD THAT WILL WORK TOGETHER BASED ON WHAT I HAVE SAID I AM TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH? (33-35's with pwr. steering) I should mention that my rig currently has a 1F out of an older FJ....I have no plans to put in a V8, want to keep the orig character of the truck, may want to switch back to a 2F at some point - I assume the drivetrain is an important consideration in the whole plan is why I mentioned it. Also, note: I don't plan on doing much if any wheeling (unfortunately!) I think I have addressed everything you would need to know to come up with some suggestions, if I have over-looked something, let me know. I guess I should mention that budget is not unlimited by any means but, I want to do it once and do it right so, if that means saving up some coin to do it right the first time, that's what I'll do. Thanks for reading my long post!! I look forward to hearing from some FJ40 pros out there! Regards, Lee PS-I'm looking for a running, driving FJ55 to putt around in while I'm working on the FJ40......l am in the Baltimore, MD area, if you know of one in the $1000-$1500 range, let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!!
