I just purchased my first toyota l/c and am totally digging it.
I did'nt get it strictly for muddin but will do some of that here in the northwest. I wanted the reliability and bullet proof powertrain. and believe it or not the third row for my expanding family. my question is i will be doing alot of road driving and snow driving over the pass. my suspension feel really bouncy like there is'nt any dampening going on with the shocks. My l/c has 92k and no service records. where should i start to smooth out the ride? i don't want to lose any fillings
going down the highway. I am also going to go through the right of passage and do the birf repack myself. Any time i can get away with buying new tools I will take it.

Old Man Emu = best thing you will do for ride and looks.

If you are going close to stock looks, just get the light spring kit and you will be riding like a caddy.

Search the archives for "suspension", "springs", "shocks" etc. You will get most of the info you need to make the right decision for you. One word of caution. You WILL use this vehicle for more wheeling than you first admit. You will add more heavy armour than you will at first admit. Look at my byline below. I thought I would be happy with a complete stocker. :D :D :D But when I found out how comfortable this thing is to wheel.........
Cheers,
Sean

Gary is a super guy and also check out Christo's site at www.sleeoffroad.com. Do yourself a favor and buy your stuff from either of these two. Don't buy it from some scab dude. Both of the above are a credit to the wheeling community and frequently do everything they can to help guys out.

Scabs are just that - scabs.

I hate scabs. Always have and always will. Nothing worse than a scab on the ole :banana: - but alas I digress. :flipoff2:
