I'll help translate if that's OK... My Pennsylvania Dutch is a little rusty though...:D

Good Day all. Just a quick question about SOA compliance and registration in Queensland. PO did a SOA on a 76 FJ40. Pretty good job I think, but I don't know if I can register in Queensland or NSW (New South Wales). Please help. Also, what's the best lift to go for if I need to change (from the SOA).

Giday there mate. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I have a fair idea SOA in Queensland is a no go. However I am pretty sure you can engineer in NSW. As to lift if you have 60/70 or 80 series power steer a nice 2 inch spring lift and some gentle trimming with the magic grinder you may achieve 35's without too much drama. Of course 35's in Queensland are no go but if covered by flares you may not have too many drama's however be aware insurance may wipe you.
Regards

Sounds like bloody tyranny to me. Once in awhile it sucks to be a Yank, but it's a damn fine thing to be free to drive whatever rusting, rattletrap, homegrown, homemade, booty fab POS I happen to own. :D

ps - you can fit 33s with no trimming, and skinny 33s may not need flares.

yep.. as said above SOA and 35's are illegal in QLD. As are extended shackles.

You WILL get done for 35s (Police and DOT are starting to crack down on this considerably these days)..

There has even been instances of Police defecting hilux's for SOA (even though they are SOA from the factory)...

You should be able to get it rego'd in NSW but that still doesn't make it legal on QLD roads.

Put OME Dakar springs in which will give you a 2" lift. Put 16" x 8" alloys on which you can do legally and piy 33"x12.50 radials on, that will give you nearly 34".
