Suspension Question ...
 
My FJ has a slight lean to the left. If I put a level on the bumper, it's slightly off toward the driver side.

It's like whoever owned it before weighed 350 pounds ...

What is the easiest way to correct that? New shocks?

Thanks! - VDW

Gas tank, battery, driver, etc... there is much more weight on the driver's side. I believe there are some leveling kits... essentially spacers out there to fix this. I personally never pay enough attention to care.

I cannot find any info on the spacers to balance out the lean, so, I might have just made that up in my head. I do that sometimes.

But I did read that the FJ40 had a driver's side lean, and supposedly this was integrated into the FJ Cruiser for more of that nostalgic factor. Personally I say bullshit, and it's just because most of the heavy components under the FJ are on the left side.

LOL.....if it is available in your area look for a Russian Imperial Stout brewed by North Coast Brewery called 'Old Rasputin'....it only comes in four packs because it packs a punch....

Had that a couple times. Folkin' good shite right there. I'll admit, my favorites are Milk Stout by Left Hand Brewery, and Oatmeal Stout by Goose Island. Both are OUTSTANDING.

I currently live in a dry county.... just moved in here in February ... I can't even buy shitty beer, let alone the good shit.
