    Looks to me like they just installed flares, and did not cut them...

    Do you know the number of leaves in the spring pack?

    They seem to have fair amount of arch in them yet to be a 'stock' spring...but who knows...

    Are you close to this truck?

    I'm gonna go with "maybe" stock springs, but new ones. Fairly tall for a old worn stocker set.

    seems alittle on the "high" side to me, it might have 2"s under it.
    i'll also go with the vote of the fenders are not cut.

    Ya I can take a look at it :) its the one I bought heheheh but It will have to wait till the morning its at my shop I just swapped the front axle for a disc brake one. I was asking because the rubber bushings around the front spring mounts were almost totaly gone and I would like to replace them. But the owner did not have a clue about the truck husband had died and she wanted the fj gone. So I am not sure what size bushings to get I guess I should have put a caliper on the spring and seen what size hole it was.

    Thanks

    Did the red x, then I hit the refresh button, and there it was. That definitely has more lift than my new "same as stock, 0 lift" springs. At least 2 inches there.

    I have stock springs that have a really good arch. I do have 4 inch shackels though. That height is close to mine.
