    What is the stock shackle length (BETWEEN PIN HOLES) for front and rear on 74 fj40? I suspect the PO put longer ones on to compensate for sagging springs. These things have to be at least 5 inches.

    mine is a 75, and they are about 2 3/4" (maybe 2 1/2, it's cold and dark!)
    thinking about installing longer ones, to compensate for sagging springs in the back
    front and back seem to be the same
    stefan

    that is from pin center to pin center
