Dynatrac SST Performance Shock Absorbers

    Our project Land Cruiser has seen more changes than Michael Jackson’s nose. It’s changed the suspension four times, an engine transplant, two different transmissions and transfer cases, six sets of drive shafts, two sets of axles and the list goes on.

Energy Suspension HYPER-FLEX Master Kit

  After 20 years, things tend to fall apart. When we bought Project Over Easy (our ’81 Jeep CJ8 Scrambler) it was in excellent condition.
