Can't go wrong with Old Man Emu! I'm not too familiar with Ironman.

I use to sell the Ironman springs but.. I found that the fit and finish wasn't good enough and the springs fit like crap on the FJ40's. The 60 series kits are quite nice but sit a bit low in the nose like the OME.
I've been selling Belton's and OME for the past few years. The Beltonís outsell the OME's about 12 to 1.
I run the Belton kit on my 60 and love it and I run the OME's on my FJ40. I will however run Belton's on my FJ40 when the OME's finally die (6 years and going strong). I just can't justify the added cost for OME's when they ride and flex the same (my opinion from dealing with the spring kits on dozens of Cruisers)

I would check to see if you can get Belton's locally
if not, contact me and I'll find you a supplier you can get them from.

Some people are like Slinkies... not really good for anything, but you
still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.
