NOTE: WILL NOT work on the 100 Series.
Anyone with an 80 Series Land Cruiser will, one day, eventually have to deal with the Floppy Mirror Syndrome (FMS). Now this is not to be mistake with Shaky Mirror Syndrome (SMS). FMS needs something a little more that what modern medicine can offer, it requires surgery. In this case you *could* just pound a 16d nail into it and call it a day. For those of us that don't solve our problems with nail, there is a more refined solution. If you have a 100 Series with the same issue you can use the 100 Series Floppy Mirror Fix.

Fixed my floppy mirror problem. I used a valve spring compressor to install it which made it very easy. Mine had also lost the ball so I just used bb's
Easy fix with this part. Went on and off without difficulty. Hardest part is getting it in vise correctly and lined up.
This great little gadget took some figuring out at first but totally resolved my issue. Mirror back to OEM standards. Follow the photos and you can do this repair in a short period of time.
Great ingenuity, installed in 20 mins, no more duct tape on my mirror!
Works like a champ! The install instructions say a vise is recommended and it definitely would have been easier with one. If you are kind of stupid like me you can still get it done with a c-clamp and a little extra time.
Great product and great fit! Solved Floppy Mirror syndrome on both driver and passenger side. Would recommend to anyone who would like to use their side mirrors again!
Great solution for old cast aluminum that breaks. My trick for compressing the spring that helped is a 5/16" x 4" long fully threaded bolt through the center of everything. A 5/8" socket will clear the O.D. of the hollow tube and allow enough compression. Very nice fix for common problem.
Another great product fix from wits end! Don't know what I'd do without all his killer land cruiser stuff. I couldn't find a replacement mirror at any local wreckers..WITS END saves the day again.
Great idea. Easy to install. Hardest part was compressing the spring.
