Scott; I don't know the diameter but got mine from SOR and they fit perfectly...standard pig suspension w/o any lift; did get the polyurethane bushings.........now 8 more zerks to care for.....nice difference in the ride.....HTH;
I have checked SOR and CCOT and they both have the 18mm bolts, but I was hoping to find something less than $12.00 a bolt. I have found a non greasable shackle bolt for $3.00 which is the way I am leaning. I have also found spring pins from Kurt at Cruiser Outfitters for quite a bit less than SOR and CCOT. Thanks again Kurt.
I actually decided to build my blue and white 55 and repair all the rust, are you still interested in a good 1979 FJ55 Arizona body?
Darn Scott; I went and got the 69 55 and am in the process of grafting it onto the 79..............it would have been a hell of a lot less headaches to have a 79 on a 79.......oh well.........the 69 was going to the crusher anyway so at least it will live on; are Kurt's pins "greasable"?
.......... Scott, the greasable pins make a noticable difference on the squeaks and quality of ride on the 78
are your bases decent?..........new lenses are available along with the rubber seals; you can clean up your bases with steel wool; shoot the with paint and install new lenses; biggest problem is finding the 55fender mounts; HTH
I believe the bases are pretty much shot, but I really never dug to far into them. I broke the bolt in the middle while trying to take them off, so I figured they were probably too far gone to repair. I will have to see if I can do some repair work before I go and spend $75.00 per side for new.
a pleasure .......yep, I want to buy that 79 out of AZ.........butwould have me commited just flipped the 69 body on the 79 frame last weekend...........a butt buster of a project, got the clutch hooked up today.....would have been a lot easier to go with a 79.......oh well, it needs a good home will keep my eyes open for you Scott.........keep us in pix
