    I have a FJ55 and it needs a springover. I am not sure about all the steps. If you can help with any info it would be very helpful. Thank you for your time in advance. :bow:

    The issues in a FJ55 are nearly identical to those in the FJ40. Read up on a couple of the tech writeups on SOA projects and those should answer most questions.

    First you wanted to spring it over or lift it- then it seemed like you were selling it- and now you want to spring it over? What's the deal? Are you springing it over because you want to wheel it? Or are you doing it to give it a better sale value?

    Either way, I can give you a pretty comprehensive list of what I did to mine. Right now I'm at work, so I'd have to do it later- but yeah- it's a good thing, springs being on top of the axles and all....

    Zipp.
