    I would also strongly suggest shocks to be changed, i installed used Ranchos 9000 (adjustable), bought em from Astabal which costed me 8,000 for front and rear. They made the ride so very comfortable and stable.
    The trouble is that too often there is forty horsepower under the bonnet and one asspower at the wheel

    Where are you getting the work done on your FJ, Pindi or Islamabad?
