I'm sure this question has been addressed before but I'm having a hard time finding it. I have a 1994 Fzj80 on 35's and am looking to replace the shocks and coils. Currently the lift on the truck is old man emu but I bought the truck after it was lifted so I do not know what springs/coils are on it. Any suggestions on what coils/shocks would be appreciated. Currently I have no winch or aftermarket bumpers, although a small custom front bumper may be coming. I have read that a 2.5 inch lift will clear 35's but it doesn't seem like that is enough. Any good places to order from? Pictures coming soon...

35s all day! Gotta love huge fenders and solid front axles. Trying this on say a 4Runner or Tacoma is an Act of God (at least to do it right).

If the truck has a lift already and you're already running the tires you want, why are you replacing the shocks and coils?

If the springs that you have on your truck are OME, they should have a white sticker rapped around one of the coils with the spring P/N printed on it. That sticker is make out of some type of plastic, and it seem to be very durable, even on springs installed awhile ago.

Shop truck on OME 2.5 and 315/17s. Hasn't been stopped by anything in it's tracks yet (except deep snow/slush, need lockers). You will have great handling, no extra height driveline issues, etc (just need to deal with panhard and front caster)
