    Hi all,

    I've been thinking about this for awhile, and finally decided to post and see if anybody has some advice. My fj60 has a 2.5" MAF lift, which came with OME light duty shocks. Handling is hugely improved over the old saggy springs. I have about 10,000 miles on the lift. My only complaint, not a severe one though, is that the truck "pitches" on some freeway sections. That is, the front goes up, the back goes down, and then vice-versa. Maybe "bobbing" would be more descriptive. The shocks seem fine on most surfaces, but I wonder if the medium or heavy OME's would keep minimise this pitching/bobbing? Maybe it's only a function of the lift, and has nothing to do with the shocks?

    I'm guessing that a bunch of you know way more about this than I do, so any advice would be appreciated.
