I am planning to replace the entire suspension in my fj

This answer was rated:

I am planning to replace the entire suspension in my fj cruiser. Currently the vehicle seems a bit bouncy and nose dives when I brake. My driving is 70% on road and 30% off road. The off road is not very serious off-roading...
I am therefore thinking of bilstein coilovers 6112 for the front and the 5165 shocks for the rear. My other options are TJM 2'' lift suspension kits (though i am not keen on lifting the vehicle)
What would be your advice. The suggestions could be different to the above.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Depending on how much you want to spend then i highly recommend the Fox suspension .

If you Don't want to lift then personally i would stay with OEM factory suspension .

hi greg
thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, i couldnt open the link to the front shocks.
I believe the rear shocks cost around $300?
My budget is 1500-$2000 for 2 front coil overs and rear shocks.
thanks i look forward to your reply

Okay good then fox is sure for you .



One of the best on the aftermarket .

thanks greg.
lastly, i have located a dealer who has in stock the 2.0 fox shock coil over. however the rear one that he has is just the 2.0 without the reservoir. should i go ahead with it? will there be any difference performance wise? i know that the reservoir helps in heat dissipation and the duration of the life...

Yes you can use this one just a bit cheaper but are also good ,2.5 would be better .
