An off the shelf kit that is just shy of a competition level rock crawler suspension? Yes this is it. This is our 4” Safari Suspension kit with shackle reversal taken to the extreme for off-roading. When Don Robbins and Tracey Jordan were competing in the ARCA series with real FJ40’s a few years ago, a slightly modified version of this exact kit is what was on both of their winning ARCA rigs. Not only will this suspension deliver unbelievable off road performance, it will also dramatically improve on road handling, steering control and ride quality. How is this possible? We built a kit with the best components available, around the idea of keeping the axles above the leaf springs to maintain as low a center of gravity as possible, while achieving unparalleled suspension travel. On the front suspension we start with our 8 leaf 2-1/2” Safari Springs for flexibility and control. We then add our 4 Plus Shackle Reversal kit, that improves the front approach angle and handling characteristics while eliminating bump steer. 4 Plus U-bolt Flip Kits make sure there is nothing hanging down to catch on obstacles while sliding over boulders, and our 4 Plus Long Travel Shock Towers allow use of extra long shocks to maximize potential axle travel and articulation. Add Old Man Emu long travel shocks, 4 Plus greaseable HD shackles and MAF greaseable spring pins and you have the best off the shelf front suspension for a 40 series you can buy. |
For the rear suspension we use our 5 leaf 4” Safari springs, with 4 Plus U-bolt Flip Kits, Old Man Emu Long travel shock absorbers, 4 Plus super HD GSK greaseable shackles, and MAF greaseable spring pins. This set up will more than double rear axle travel over stock, while improving ride quality and control. Unlike spring over axle conversions, there are no issues with spring torque wrap, high center of gravity, and poor handling on road.
To finish out this kit we provide a full set of MAF polyurethane bushings, extended frame to axle stainless steel braided brake lines, and a premium Old Man Emu steering dampener(yes it can be used with saginaw, look at the picture of the dark blue FJ40 above). There is no other kit you can buy that will deliver anywhere near the all around improvements both on and off road that this kit will. So if you are looking to get into some serious off roading, but don’t want to sacrifice on road drive ability, and want a kit that will supply you everything you need, this is the kit for you.
