Incase anyone was curious how the dobinsons springs outlined above would look with 285/75r16 Toyo ATIIIs on lx450 rims.

33s:

thanks for the pics, they definitely help out with deciding on what to get. personally i want to stay 33ish (295/70/17) and use the dobinson 1.75 springs, not sure on if the linear or progressive rates, still researching that. good luck with the mods(de)

I'm in similar dilemma, sticking with 33's but not sure if I want 1.75 dobinsons or stock height w 30mm spring spacers. Definitely going with progressives though.

The space between the original hole and the new one is equal to that of the stick flange nut. So it should be fine.
They came off easy hole had plenty of clearance from the original - one issue though is I don’t have the original bolts. On joeys site he says don’t run the bolts/nuts without the plates - is this just because they are too long? I need to source some replacements but want to make sure they are going to kill me lol.

I might have a set of take out bolts and nuts if you don’t mind used ones. I can mail them to you usps and you should have them Monday.

PM me your address if you like
Thank you! Any issues for the next day or two running these longer bolts?

OME 2681/2862s have been ordered. I may get them before the weekend and I’ll tackle it then. Any suggestions for checking shock measurements to make sure they are appropriate for the the vehicle lift/height?

ARB Rack was pulled off today

Have you got a buyer for the roof rack? I'm looking for a 2nd hand rack. LMK

The new ride height with the OME springs drives like a totally different truck. I really enjoy how it handles as a daily driver now. Sliders are high up on the list now that shes a bit lower. The Dobinsons shocks actually pair quick nicely with these springs and the ride is really nice.
