I just bought a 70 FJ55 and I am in need of new leaf springs, I have called all the usual suspects and they have all stopped selling the 4" springs. I wonder if any of you guys know who may have them available.

If you want anything more then 2 1/2" lift...I'm afraid you will have to go ALCAN (custom).
Read the fine print, all springs listed below achieve 4" lift from extended shackles.

X2 on Alcan, you will get a 4" lift with them...probably more if you ask for 4" I had probably 4.5" to 5" of lift on mine unloaded. You can get any height/weight rating, length etc. I would order 1.5" longer on the shackle side to improve shackle angles. And be conservative on your weight...because it will sit at 4" AFTER you have loaded it down.

No luck yet

Thanks guys for the links, I called every one and well they just don't carry any of them. I did find a local place in El Monte CA. that does custom leafsprings or maybe I should concentrate on other fixes untill they get some more springs back in stock. My 70 FJ55 does not stop very well, and well I will be doing a rear disk break conversion and some other alterations like putting some wood floors and fiber glass body work. I will be posting pics as soon as I get some the time to work on that. Thanks

The other nice thing about custom springs, is that they're custom :D

Want to improve your shackle angles?
Have them made a few inches longer.

Want to move your axles an INCH or TWO?
Specify a custom pin location.


Can anyone think of other features that someone should consider (before they order)?
