    Does anybody know if stock shocks will work on an FJ60 that has taller shackles? The shackle lift is about 1.5" and I need to get new shocks but dont know if I need to get some that are larger.

    Thanks,

    I ran my truck with stock shocks and 2" over shackles up front, 1" over in the back and didnt seem to run out of travel. I wouldnt necessarily put stock shocks back on if it were my truck though, other than longevity they dont have a lot going for them. Id find a pair of decent shocks around 2 1/2" over so you can run an off the shelf lift spring in the future if you would like to without the added expense of new shocks.
