I had a leveling kit on my FJ but I decided I wanted to install 34 inch tires on it. For a little more clearance I decided to give the Bilstein 5100 Series Shocks and Struts a try. I am extremely pleased with the result and product. It looks very nice on the FJ TRD and out performs the original TRD Bilstein shocks when I go off road. And the FJ looks nice with its higher stance and larger tires. Far easier to install than the leveling kit was and with greater lift.
