    oil pressure gauge will be going in over the next couple of weeks, going to use a t pieve in the factory pressure switch port so i can retain the low pressure light. will upload pics when its done.

    also while im here, the shocks im going to use require bump stop extensions amongst other things, im going to be using timbren bumpstops as part of the suspension upgrade, does any body know if they compress to the same point as factory stops and will require spacers or will they be enough to stop me blowing my shocks appart. need 15mm extra clearance before shocks bottom out.

    Look for the grease ball joint. Or check the description for the updated ball joint with the zirk fitting. I'm pretty sure it's been about a year since they updated that part so if you buy new, shouldn't be an issue

    so shocks and springs in.

    bilstein b6 4600 80 series 60mm lift rear shocks and hilux/tacoma struts with tjm 40mm front hd springs and 45mm lifted rear springs.

    once the springs settle i should see 110mm droop in front end and 100mm rear droop

    its amazing the difference no sway bar on the front makes, while it did lift a wheel for a couple of seconds over the hole on the left it only felt like a few inches off and didnt feel like the car was on any peculular angles, glad i did my research on the right bilsteins and got a 575mm open length and didnt opt for the standard off the shelf set up although annoyed i only found out after that distributor in aus here can extend them out all the way to 605mm

    Ok people can i have some expert knowledge here, i have a company that can build me longer struts then wat im currently using which have an open length of 575mm, they have told me my bump stops may need spacing as the closed length of the new strut is 15mm longer then factory.

    My question is how thick would i need to make my bump stop spacers? Is it still the same 1.85 ratio or is it different as the bumps are further inboard?

    lol --- seeing "///" in a few posts and figured I am behind the times and it has some special meaning these days.

    Wait - maybe it's another iPhone 'enhancement' ... it just occurred to me it could be some weird character translation artifact.
