In the future I think I'd might lift my 45, not much 2 to 4 inches. Spring over looks easy but I don't see many done this way. Your thoughts.

"looks easy" and "done right" are two different things. with a lot of thought and some fabrication, they're not bad, but you need to consider if that's what you need for the type of wheeling you plan on doing.

I run a 2.5 in spring lift from an FJ40 on the front and two add a leafs [one long, one short] for each side in the rear. Seems to ride OK.

After I do the 4 speed conversion and the power steering, I will prolly move up one tire size and go to 4" FJ40 springs in the front, with a pair of custom made Alcans for the rear.
