Was wondering if any one knew the leaf springs lengths for factory leafs (front and rear), my rear axle sits a little forward and the front seems to as well, so wondering if the feller' i purchase it from had put them on backwards, any advise in this area would be helpful, thanks again

Pics would help, but most including mine also appear to be set forward. Not sure why, but that's why alot of guys reverse their springs, which also increases your wheelbase.

reversing springs, i have heard of some using FJ-55 springs in the rear and also using F-250 springs in the rear, this is the third FJ-40 i have owned and one of them sat a little forward in the rear as well.
