Stock suspension or a 2.5" lift FJ60 vs FJ62 Land Cruiser

Updated: Mar 27, 2019



Here is a 1985 FJ60 lifted with a 2.5" Old Man Emu suspension kit.


I'm running 33" 10.5 R15 BF Goodrich K02 All Terrain tires with an Old Man Emu front steering dampener. A steering dampener is a must when upgrading to a 2.5.


Part numbers for Old Man Emu

  1. Front Shocks 60009

  2. Rear Shocks 60032 (60062 post 1986)

  3. Leaf Springs -- Front Cs003F Rear Cs017RA or B (Shorter 2” spring)

  4. Bushing kit OMESB1 (Need 4)

  5. Front U bolts OMEU51 (Need 4)

  6. Rear OMEU59B (Need 4)

  7. Anti inversion kit FK08 (Need 2) (Amazon)

  8. Front greasable shackle kit (Need 1) OMEGS2

  9. Rear greasable shackle kit (Need 1) OMEGS1



Here is a 1983 FJ60 with a stock suspension upgrade that doesn't break your bank.


I kept the factory leaf springs and upgraded the shocks to Old Man Emu. I also put on an Old Man Emu steering dampener because of the larger tires. I'm running 31" 10.5 R15 BF Goodrich K02 All Terrain tires.


*** To save even more money use Bilstein shocks. Make sure you use the below part numbers for the FJ60. Nothing else will fit!


Bilstein Part Numbers:

Front Shocks: BIL24-002479

Rear Shocks: BIL24-002561
