Do all FJ's have the lean? I have read so many threads that talk about them but I don't recall the FJ I bought having any noticeable lean. I am asking now because I am starting my lift research and have read about the spring packs from CCOT that have the shim already in place to correct. Here is the best pic's I have front front and back the day I bought it and one from yesterday for fun... any thoughts and suggestions for lift... looking for 2-3". Does anyone know if you have to lift a certain amount for a V8 conversion to clear oil pan?
thanks

On my Dad's FJ-40 we put the OME 2.5" suspension on. Couldn't be happier, BTW.

But when we did that, it got rid of most of the lean. Maybe about 1/2" to DS at the rear tire. Before that, it looked pretty straight (but definitely had a lean), but when measured had a 1 3/4" lean on the DS rear tire.

I like the lean. It's just a good way to prove that yours is a cruiser. :)
