    What's wrong with the factory bump stops?

    My rear shocks are 20mm longer closed so bump stops needed to be spaced down, though id give the timbrens a shot and after a drive down the beach yesterday, can say money well spent. Will definetly be getting them for the front aswell.

    Anyone here had brackets made to space the rear shocks, not the pin extnsion type but something to bolt in and out of the rear mount, want to run around another 20mm lift with out sacrificing droop.

    So people ive narrowed my uca options down to the two.

    Superior engineering (these are for hilux, i eamailed superior and they are still finishing the r&d for the prado/fj arms)
    Superior Billet Alloy Upper Control Arms Suitable For Toyota Hilux | Superior Engineering

    PSR
    Toyota Prado 120-150 / FJ Adjustable Upper Control Arms - PSRPRA-012

    Superior have been in the game a long time and are a major company here in aus, psr are only a few years old but quocky becoming popular

    Psr arms would im guessing be stronger but i cant see anything about greasable bushes or ball joint, the psr also has an extendes ball joint which im not sure is needed on an after market arm unless running a 4+ inch or long trave set up.

    Opinions please?

    My 2 cents...you won't enjoy retorquing those adjuster nuts on either of these options on a regular maintenance schedule.

    FJ Cruiser Transmission Cooler Kit this should be here in a couple of weeks, plans will be to eventually by pass the factory in built cooler altogether and run this with a derale heatsink cooler aswell to make sure trans cooling is taken care of even in extreme conditions.

    Should have the valve body upgraded in a few months to. I feel these two mods should prevent the transmission shudder from developing
