    The diagram in post # 3 came from this site, but the bottom is cut off. Does anyone have FSM and can re-post entire diagram?

    I have a BJ41 and the measurements of the diagram in post 3 match the front frame width of my cruiser. Not the diagram from the FSM. I thinking the Cruiser sightly changed in 1980. I'm running 70 series axles and I had to move the long side front perch inboard to keep the shackles vertical. Seems that Toyota straight axles after the 80's track a little to the right. If my measurements were the same as what I find on mud and vintage off road ( I think they pulled them from tlc faq here) my shackles would have toed in instead of out. If you need me to measure mine to compare to the true parts of your frame let me know. good luck

    Does anyone have a full page of the image in post 3? It missing rear portion of the frame.
    I did looked at FAQ and Google it, but couldn't find full frame cross dimension image.

    Any luck? I need to drill out my rear cross member this weekend.

    I guess worst case scenario I can measure from the spare cross member that I have.

    Rear is 2' 3 1/8" center to center. 1 5/8" center to back of cross member.

    The 79-84 cross member is quite a bit thicker than early models, which provides for more meat for the mount holes. I just drilled out the cups from my spare 80 cross member. I then placed them in my factory 77 rear crossmember.

    I have more measurements that i will document in my thread.

    Those diagrams were extremely helpful for all of my fabbed mounts.
