J.T. mine is a 89 troopie, had an extra leaf put into the front springs as well as all springs being re - set back in '91 prior to a trip up the full lenght of the CSR and on round 'oz. The springs are still going strong today, no sag but the extra leaf makes for a harsher ride on the black top.

I should have mentioned that these are the original Toyota springs.

Yeah Sorry about that should have been more specific.

Yes coil springs on the front, the brand was polyair from TGM store. I had them installed on the rear only (mate & I took 4 hours to do the job) I dont think there is a need to do the fronts unless the springs are in bad shape. Another brand is "Airbags Australia" at Rydalmere, NSW they distribute the Firestone brand but basicly the same as Polyair

Regards
