It is time to change out the rear shocks on the FJ. I have been running the Toytec Coilovers up front and OME heavy springs and shocks in the rear. I have never had a complaint about the performance or manners of this setup.

After 7+ long years the rear shocks are shot; so I am looking to simply replace them with Old Man Emu again.

I dont tow or carry heavy loads often (really at all).. so here is what I have in mind:

Old Man Emu 60004 Shock

Am I on the right path or should I go up to the Old Man Emu 60081 ?

it looks like the old model (which I am running now) is still for sale:

basically would it be non disastrous to run the OME heavy spring with a non OME heavy shock?

Seems you have already proven your point. Since you don't haul heavy loads, or run your FJ in the Baja 1000, stick with what you know works.

OME did awesome for me. No complaints at all.

At any rate, I think these are the rear shocks I'll also run-
