    Hi everyone,

    I am a new member as of today. I am Canadian!!! I bought an '89 FJ62 last summer. Now I am putting new tires on it. I am going with BF Goodrich AT 33x10x5's. Can anyone tell me if I need to do anything with my suspension?:confused:

    Welcome

    If you have the original springs, then you are probably going run into problems with 33's. Search just the 60/62 forum in upper right for suspension lifts and readup. Upgrading the springs with a lift kit makes a big improvement.

    The 62 springs seem to hold their arch a little better than the 60's so you might be fine on clearance. Cheapest route to fit them would be a small shackle lift. Searching will provide you hours of reading of options. Dont forget to post up some pics. :cheers:

    Im planning on getting an extra leaf spring for now, will this do for now? ?That will give me 2.5 to 3in.
