    Does anyone have the length of the early (pre 79) springs on the FJ40 and FJ55? I am in need of a pair shorter than the stock ones on a 40.

    Dang Woodie, you think I can convert that??
    I went down to the "hoard" and these are a couple of the quick measurements I came up with these were taken pin to pin, in a straight line with the weight of the rig on them.

    Mini front 45'' spring pin centered sounds like a good SO rear donor

    Mini rear 45'' pin 22" from front

    FJ55 front 41" pin 21" from front

    Sounds like the 55 front will fit my needs.
