    Does anyone know if the springs from a `78 fj-40 will fit into an `82 bj-42 (that's just like an fj-40 only w/ a diesel, in case you didn't know ;) ) Thanks,
    Eric

    I wouldn't see why the springs wouldn't fit, check your specter offroad catalog, I think all the springs on the fj40's were the same.

    the diameter of the spring eyes on the 80+ springs are different than the 79+ springs....make sure you double check that, not positive on the BJ series stuff...

    also, isn't a 42 a longer wheelbase? Might wanna check rear spring length/pin offset. I know 45's have monster rear packs...

    No, a BJ40 has a 1B and a BJ42 has a 3B is only difference.
