    Whats up fellers??

    Just wanted to know the current opion of the fj80 crowd, I am thinking of going to 3 J springs from OME along with castor and shocks bla bla, on my 96 Fj80.

    And wanted to know if this is a good thing, what I mean is , can I put these on and go, or is their a bunch of crap that is connected to this like not driving well, you get the drift.

    Thanks
    Sethro

    Castor must be addressed as you already know. The other biggy is you may need a CV type front driveline if you have a vibration. That does not seem to be needed in some cases but be prepared to buy or build one if you do have a vibration. J springs benefit from the extra travel shocks that require lowered bumpstops.
